I opened the fridge and realized I only had eggs, cheese, fruit, and beer. I could survive if it was just me, but alas, I have to feed my family 😉 I went to the store to get some staples for a few days this week.
Decided to make this pasta mash up. Took two easy quick pastas and added fresh ingredients plus a pre-made sauce. Never feel bad for using what is already created in the grocery store for you. While I love cooking, that doesn’t mean I have to cook everything homemade all the time!
Chopped up the onion and rough chopped the mushrooms. Cooked them down in two tablespoons of both oil and butter, about 10 minutes. 4 tablespoons of fat. You could even add bacon fat and add bacon to this, but that is not the direction I went. You can play with any recipe once you see how to work the ingredients. Then add the spinach to wilt. Add salt and pepper to taste.
While the veggies were cooking, I added the pasta to a boiling pot of salted water. Then added the sauce to the veggies; combined and heated. Added the pasta to the sauced veggies plus a tablespoon of Parmesan and mixed well. Once plated, topped with more Parmesan.
