This week at corner view we are featuring our 'daily' meals
or an interpretation of such a meal
as in Susanna's Van Gogh painting.
Several times a week, Mike and I have a sit-down dinner together.
Last night was one such night
as he had just arrived home from a business trip.
I enjoy cooking, but a lot of nights, due to chronic illness ,
I am too tired after teaching teen-agers
to deal with much of a meal.
If Mike doesn't feel like cooking,
one of us makes a run to the limited choices of restaurants:
I am a one-pot or frying pan or crock pot cook usually.
I like the following meal because it is one conveniently kept in the freezer
until needed time,
takes only ten minutes,
and serves as a wonderful base for adding other ingredients.
Bow tie pasta, spinach, and chicken make up the 'foundation'.
The fridge's vegetable drawer always serves up additions.
In this case, I added onion (always), red sweet pepper, and cauliflower.
Frozen garlic bread is almost always a companion.
Of all the possible selections in this category,
Bertolli provides our favorite.
You Italians may be shuddering right now--sorry!
a wonderful pasta recipe book
complete with a beautiful pasta bowl set.
Below is a recipe I have tried and liked.
Above is a photo of it from the book
PASTISSIMA! Pasta the Italian Way.
