Even though I try hard to make every meal creative. Sometimes
It is what is. And pretty much it's just . . .
But I managed the other night to make dinner creative with a super simple meal.
I began with Spinach ravioli. Super simple frozen.
The choices were endless at Kroger. I had two priorities easy and spinach in the actual pasta. Not like the above. Although doesn't that look yummy and not borrowing at all!
The Cowboy and I although we like fresh spinach we aren't into frozen. So I went with the spinach in the dough.
It was a super simple meal with a Cesar Salad and a stuffed mushroom. I simple stuffed the mushroom with some Pepperidge farm stuffing. Drizzled with balsamic vinegar and topped with tomatoes and mozzarella.
Basically my sauce consisted of . . .
a little half/half
lots of olive oil
2 Tablespoons butter
pinch red pepper flakes
And the pin nuts to top. For only a few bucks (the mushrooms were marked down) we had a yummy meal. That fed us and there was enough to take to each of our mothers. (my mother didn't get a mushroom. She won't eat them!)
I love it when the meals I cook aren't boring!
And he ate the pine nuts!
A great fast frugal and yummy meal. Now I can put my feet up!
