My ongoing freezer space saga...
It was Saturday afternoon. T. had been gone since Tuesday and I was getting really tired of cooking for just us three. My kids eat great but it still isn't nearly as satisfying as cooking for an adult! I never have to fight with him as to how much more does he have to eat to get dessert or more of something. It's just easier.
I decided I was going to cook for myself. And I really liked it. Who cares if the kids went without anything other than penne pasta with butter...
Pasta with Vegetable Sauce
I followed no real recipe but here are the ingredients:
1 package of your favorite pasta
Parmesan cheese for topping
I chopped (chunky) the ingredients all up and first cooked down the onion, garlic, and green pepper. I then added the tomatoes and the herbs. I held off on the zucchini for a bit and then just threw it in. I let this simmer for most of the afternoon.
I made some garlic bread. Boiled the pasta. Plated my dinner and in walks T. Ended up having a great dinner after all!!!
What I used from my freezer:
1/2 bag frozen zucchini
1 1/2 green pepper
2 small bags of tomatoes
