About a year or two ago, I created a dish I called taco pasta. I took things I had - ground beef, taco seasoning, canned tomatoes, and ditalini (small , cylindrical pasta). I browned the beef with the taco seasoning, added the rest and done. It was pretty great.
Tonight, however, I decided to step up the health some. Here's to my new Taco Pasta.
Green Monster. Lastly, I threw in a can of chick peas for good measure. (I hope the skimmers appreciate that I put the important stuff in bold. I also hope fellow teachers appreciate it - it is very similar to the highlighting step used for test questions.)
I would love to cook with more fresh things but L is rarely an adventurous eater. On the other hand, nights like this I absolutely love to have my cabinets stocked with some canned goods. I can't find the post I thought I wrote, so I will have to tell you another time why crushed/diced/whole canned tomatoes are my favorite to keep around. Clearly it has to do with how many different ways I can use them. AND I DON'T EVEN LIKE TOMATOES! Well, I do, but not raw. Hence the cans.
