I was looking for something quick and easy this afternoon, so I scoured the "lazy Susans" for anything I thought would satisfy my taste buds. I came upon a can of Progresso White Clam Sauce that quite frankly had been under there for about a year, and I still can't remember why I bought it. However, now I'm glad I did!
The can shows it served over pasta, so I looked overhead and found half a box of Barilla Plus Rotini noodles and a package of No Yokes noodles. I added a handful of the No Yokes to the 1/2 box of Rotini and started the water boiling! I was on my way.
I looked at the photo on the clam sauce can and thought it needed a little something else. I had a package of "Fajita veggies" in the refrigerator, so I sauteed the onions and peppers while the can of sauce heated in a pan over low heat. Once the sauce bubbled, I added the veggies and mixed thoroughly.
After the pasta cooked, about 10 minutes, I drained and salted and peppered it. I then added a portion to two medium sized bowls, poured the hot sauce over the noodles.
I had some cheese and garlic bread left over from a spaghetti supper we had a few nights earlier, so I reheated two slices and added them to the rim of the bowls.
Men, I've been telling you all these years through this blog, that real men can cook, and this meal should be proof enough! You just have to get in the kitchen and try it. Besides, if you cook you can have your favorite libation as you work, and your wife is then obligated to clean up!
It took so little to make this and man it was good!
I think next time I will kick it up a notch by sprinkling in some crushed red pepper flakes, but it was tasty as it was!
|Not the best shot, but trust me...good!|
Oh yes, I almost forgot the dessert! We warmed up two "Brownie Pillow Cookies" I had bought at the Fresh Market in Farragut, TN. Wow, they are so soft, gooey, and sweet! I ate them so fast that I forgot how good they were with milk! Too late...all gone!
