When lunchtime rolled around this afternoon, I had only one thing on my mind.
Yesterday I followed this recipe and made pork chops in the crock pot to continue on with my Crock Pot Challenge. The leftover pork added the perfect punch of protein to my afternoon bowl of Mueller’s whole grain angel hair pasta that I bought on sale (buy one, get one free!) at Publix last week.
I added sautéed mushrooms to my marinara sauce before pouring it on top of the pasta and sprinkling the dish with parmesan cheese. Craving = Satisfied!
Though I’m not one to discriminate against any kind of pasta, I think angel hair is my favorite. I love the way marinara sauce and parmesan cheese cling to the thin noodles. Delish!
Question of the Afternoon
- What is your favorite kind of pasta?
- Any fantastic pasta recipes out there?
In general I prefer very simple pasta dishes (red sauce all the way!), but when I’m in the mood for pasta and tacos, I love to make my taco pasta skillet. I’ve also been meaning to try to make a bolognese sauce in the crock pot. It’s my favorite kind of pasta sauce and I’ve seen some mouth watering recipes out there that I need to try!
