I made a lasagna once with chicken and scallops :)


Tomato sauce dishes are often better after being re-heated :geek:

Err chicken and seafood? :eek:

I do think that the Tomato sauce thing is actually accurate because I have had some of my nicest bowls of spaghetti reheated from the fridge for whatever reason. Part of that reason for me though is because I don't feel compelled to eat it all and have leftovers for later so I may be biased ;)

I almost always make enough for more than one meal :)

Especially the tomato sauce dishes ;)

If I cook a 500 gm package of spaghetti noodles, that is probably five meals :D


Ain't nothing wrong with having spaghetti for breakfast/brunch :giggle:

well it seems healthier than potatoes for multiple meals at least.

I just had some Rotini? with beef and mozzarella. I didn't make it but it's certainly edible ;)

just a share with fellow carb and pasta lovers, etc. -
when hub and I cook, him mostly, 'he's the chef of our house' -
we always try to keep our (broths), for our next dishes/meals,
for they make the base of the flavor of what ever the next dish is...
the flavors make an extraordinary difference in TASTE/NUTRITION...
we always keep our potato water/pasta water/boiled chicken water/beef/greens, etc...

please, Brothers and Sisters, FEED yourselves with the things that will keep you in good health,
and able to 'fight-off' the infections that our world is inundating us with, for God has already given
us the 'tools' long ago, but it is up to us to 'fight the good fight', and love/care for our TEMPLES
as He desires us to do...

I just cooked some rotini, also :)

Some of it was high fiber, which my daughter bought for me :D

I fried up some ground turkey to go with it, because that
seemed a little more seasonally festive than ground beef ;)


I added organic butternut squash "noodles" to the meat sauce :)

As well as multiple cheeses (y)

Pasta is my favorite food. My grandma's family owns a bakery in Italy. I'm quarter Italian... I just can't give up pasta!

Maybe someday I'll post my grandma's spaghetti sauce recipe that takes 3 hours to simmer.

Cold potatoes?!? I guess I could eat "cool" rice or taters but refrigerated? Ach. Maybe mixed with some sour cream and some cheese I could blend it and make a Po-smoothie? I digress...
I would take those potatoes and make gnocchi

The flour used to make pasta overwhelms just about any other ingredient flavor in the pasta you use.
Commercially manufactured pasta is about as flavorless as they come. (Even the fresh ones)

Scratch pasta made from semolina and eggs is so good all you really need to dress it is a little butter and garlic.
(Newlywed wife wrinkled her nose at the suggestion until she tasted it only to be polite...I barely got what I put on my plate as she ate all I had made)

I've seen that people talking about tomato sauced pasta tasting better the next day as leftovers...
Well,
I'm here to tell you that if you go to the store and grab plum or roma tomatoes, peel and seed them and then puree them after cooking them with a little garlic, olive oil, basil, and S&P... you will discover that this pumpkin colored sauce is the richest and best flavored tomato sauce you ever put in your mouth. (Red tomatoes make pumpkin colored sauce...do it and you will see)

Real foods, made from scratch, don't need much of anything to be awesome. No tricks, no gimmicks, nothing fancy...they are awesome just plain.
