On Saturday night, since it was raining and cold, Chris and I decided to cook dinner instead of going out for pizza (our original plan). We picked up some groceries at Whole Foods and then headed back to make our pasta dinner. In the past, I’ve had a really bad experience with whole wheat (need I remind readers of the gnocchi incident?). This time, we tried fusilli pasta and it turned out to be a huge success. We picked up some organic sausage (mild Italian), bell peppers (red, green, yellow, and orange), a yellow union, mushrooms, organic marinara sauce, and Lorina’s sparkling raspberry lemonade. We added the bell peppers, onions, and mushroom to the marinara sauce, cooked the pasta, and then mixed everything together (adding in the sausage after the marinara was done). The result:
A really simple and easy dinner to make, but it was SO tasty that Chris went back for THIRDS! Our table:
I think the best marinara to use is Whole Foods’ store brand (it’s cheap – under $2 – and very delicious). The marinara from Whole Foods is also really easy to experiment with – we made a cream sauce using the marinara when we made gnocchi that was really delicious as well. After dinner, we watched the season finale of SNL (did they forget how to be funny?) and then watched the finale of The Office again (I LOVED the ending and cannot wait until next season!).
