simply homemade: bonding pasta

4 Aug


Waking up slightly groggy this morning was surprisingly enjoyable as I knew it came from a fun night spent chatting and sipping wine with my adorable roommate.

I was ravenous upon getting home from work and trolled the kitchen for whatever food I could find. All that was around was a measly 1/3 bag of brown rice pasta and some left over veggies. I decided to make some pasta for myself and upon her arrival, the roomie. With so little pasta left (hardly enough for two growing girls…), I beefed it up with all of the ripe things lying around that were just screaming to be eaten.


In the mix:

2 small servings of brown rice pasta

2 ripe red tomatoes

2 large handfuls of arugula

1/4 red onion

2 tablespoons evoo

garlic salt

salt and peppah

shaved Parmesan cheese to top

Boil the pasta in salted water until al dente. While that is cooking, sautee the sliced onion in the evoo until soft, adding in the tomatoes, salt pepper and garlic salt to taste, allowing the tomatoes to simmer and shake until soft as well. Throw in a splash of white wine and the arugula, letting it wilt a bit and turn bright green. Toss with the hot pasta and top with the Parmesan.

I chose to serve ours in bowls to up the coziness factor, as well as copious amounts of New Zealand white wine and some damn good conversation…

Do the same, you can thank me later.
