Same Ingredients, Different Dinner
Tonight, we had spaghetti:
…with a veggie/tempeh tomato sauce that was made using almost all of the same ingredients we used in our burritos the night before: onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, and tempeh:
I chopped the mushrooms and broccoli a lot finer for the tomato sauce, which gave the sauce a nice texture when combined with the tempeh. I also used Italian spices—dried basil and oregano, plus salt and pepper. Let everything simmer in store-bought jarred tomato sauce for about 30 minutes, and voila—a delicious pasta topper!
Easy dinner, for sure. I made the sauce right after lunch when Lila went down for her nap, and then when we got back from campus at 6:00, all we had to do was boil a pot of water for the pasta.
File this one under easy and delicious!
Not sure what’s on the agenda for this morning. I have a meeting up on campus at 1:00, but we’re free until then…maybe a trip to the pool is in order.
