Meena had one of her classes last night so I was tasked with getting a hearty, filling dinner cooked up before she got home. And because I was trapped in the rain on the way home, I had nothing but the stuff in the fridge to accomplish my mission. What to do when you have limited ingredients and you need something filling? Garbage pasta, friends. Garbage pasta.
In all fairness, I had a couple nice ingredients. Not ideal, but they were still really good. So I just started chopping and ended up with:
- whole wheat pasta
- crushed red pepper
That's it. And based on our two empty bowls at the end of the meal, I'd say it was a success. Not much you can do to screw this one up though.
