Pasta Night

Bruce did not want to cook tonight.  I did not want to go out for dinner tonight.  Therefore, I had to cook dinner tonight.

I still think I won in this compromise.  I had to go to the grocery store to pick up a few things and was able to pick up mousse while I was there.  Curly hair can now commence.

I cooked down some sliced onions and mushrooms on low heat in some butter.  I wasn't looking to caramelize anything (Bruce isn't a huge fan), I just wanted to soften them up and give them some flavor.  I seasoned with salt and pepper while they cooked, then added pasta sauce and seasoned that with salt, pepper, garlic, oregano and parsley.


Oh - and garlic bread!  I bought a loaf of fresh Italian Bread ($0.99 on Fridays), sliced it on a diagonal, smothered the pieces with butter and garlic and cooked them at 350 degrees.

Bruce and I are heading out!

    That is by far my favorite pasta shape! :)

  2. That's so funny - I bought it because I really liked the shape and Bruce HATED it! He said it was too weird to eat. Ha!
