Earlier today I was looking at my bank statement online and was shocked to see how many times I ate out in the past month. It was shocking! Too embarrassing to admit the total... So, trust me when I say it was ridiculous.
Today I went to the grocery store and stocked up on ingredients to make homemade dinners and easy to pack lunches.
Iowa Girl Eats is one of my favorite food bloggers and I bookmark many of her blog posts because they contain recipes I just have to try. One of these is Drunken Garden Pasta. I just can't resist a recipe that calls for penne noodles. I don't know why but I just like them more than any other noodle, they're just... better. This dish was no exception. It was so tasty and easy to prepare.
Meanwhile I was cooking my penne noodles.
Once those were done and while they were draining in the sink. I added a splash of chardonnay and a little bit of balsamic vinegar and olive oil to the pasta pan, just like she said. Then I heated it for about 20 seconds or so and added the pasta mixed with the sauteed goodness and a sprinkle of feta cheese.
And this is what I got...
Mmm, mmm good! I loved it! It was perfection with a glass of chardonnay! Such an easy meal to make that is healthy! Most of her recipes include healthy fruits and veggies so I always feel good when I make them. They also always seem to include common ingredients that are already in my cupboards! Makes things that much easier.
I'm glad I tried this one and will definitely make it again. Next thing I'm going to try is her Enchilada Pizza. Sounds tasty!
