For breakfast I had an apple, water, and a few cookies. Not the most nutritious meal ever- but hey, it hit that grumbling stomach 😉
For lunch, in keeping with the TRYING to eat better and spend less ways I decided to use what I had at home.
I decided on Penne pasta since I had a whole box of it. I also had the garlic, tomatoes and everything else I needed!!! yay! 🙂
- Penne Pasta
- Olive Oil
- Sun dried tomatoes
- onion (less then a 1/4 of a small onion)
- salt and black pepper
Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender (but NOT squishy) but still firm to the bite (al dente), stirring occasionally, about 7-9 minutes. Then you’ll need to drain most of the water out but not all, save about 25 % or a cup of hot water you boiled it in.
Take your garlic cloves and onion and chop them up (for easier blending) and put them inside the blender with about 3 spoons of olive oil. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and salt and pepper, to taste, and blend until the tomatoes are finely chopped.
Take a salad or big bowl and put the sauce in their. Add some Parmesan Add the pasta and little bit of the water to mix with the sauce and coat your pasta well. (Don’t add all the water at once. Only add it little by little and mix until you get the right coating.
