Yum, dinner turned out great!
Today basically sucked – the weather is crappy, work was nuts, and I was just ready to get cooking and turn off my computer for a while.
For some reason, being in the kitchen just melts away the day. Whatever happened earlier loses its power. The stresses and worries and frustrations slip away with each chop or slice or dice. Stirring a pot of bubbling pasta sauce just makes me forget about everything else and focus on dinner.
Thankfully, the new recipe I wanted to try tonight turned out so good!
While I’m not going to give out the full recipe yet, I’ll tell you the major ingredients here:
- whole wheat pasta
- ground buffalo
- crushed and diced tomatoes
- tomato paste
- crushed red pepper
- …and a secret ingredient ;)
I love when recipe trials turn out good! It makes me happy and it means we have edible meals.
While the pasta dish was cooling, I cooked some frozen peppers and onions and added in some green beans, salt, pepper, and garlic for a quick side dish.
Any good dinner is nice on a Monday night, but I’m always extra excited when it’s easy to put together, too.
