Just like Jenni yesterday I had some pantry cleaning to do. I found myself with an excess of half used jars of previous recipes ingredients, so in an act of culinary genius I threw together a meal for myself and my friend Natalie, with some leftover for her boyfriend/my roommate Dale.
The gist of the dish was this:
1 can of diced tomatoes
1/2 jar of sundried tomatoes
1/2 jar of sweet pepper
1 tablespoon of Capers
Red pepper flakes
1 container of mushrooms, chopped
and a box of Penne Pasta
so, I started with just mushrooms and the idea that I was going to make mushroom pasta. It sort of evolved into this conglomeration of ingredients. I cooked the mushrooms until they were soft, tossed in everything except for the can of diced tomatoes, I had that in a separate little pot heating up and eventually moved it over so the mixture could simmer together. Boiled the pasta until al dente and tossed it with my “sauce” mixture.
Like I said simple and easy, but quite tasty.
I hope you stick around and enjoy our 30 days of posting. 😀
