Yesterday was a frigid day– we had snow and wind chills of -35!! It was the perfect day to snuggle up in a blanket and drink hot toddies by the fire, which I happily did.
Here are a few pictures of our winter wonderland:
Usually on cold days I’d make a soup or chili with cornbread, but for some reason, I was in the mood for a bowl of pasta. With the cold temps and wind, I didn’t want to go out to get ingredients, so I made my Whatchyagot Pasta. I used whatever I had on hand, which ended up being pepperoncinis, onions, mushrooms, garlic, and tomatoes.
I threw it all in a pan with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and olive oil and cooked it for 10-15 minutes.
While it sautéed, I cooked spaghetti until al dente, and then put it in the pan with all the other ingredients. I added more olive oil and tossed it all together.
Voilà!! Easy peasy pasta! And, oh my goodness, it was so good!
To top it off, I added grated parmesan, and then ate two bowls!
So, use whatchyagot and enjoy!
