pasta please

it was a busy day of the gym, laundry and cleaning house.

saturday night, ryan was working until about 8 so i got to work on some dinner for the man.

pasta is indeed my favorite food, i decided to get creative:

on hand i had a good assortment going on:

i like to prep everything before i start so i dont get overwhelmed.

i gave myself points for cutting a lot of veggies on a little cutting board.

salor jerry rum was on sale at ralphs.. and it was even a special anniversary bottle so i got one….

add a decent amount of extra virgin olive oil:

add onions and jalepeno until soft,

then add veggies and garlic (this way the garlic wont burn)

cover from time to time to steam:

once veggies are soft add tomatoes:

add about 1 tablespoon of tomato paste, oregano to taste and chopped parsley (reserve some for garnish)

(i had curly but flat leaf would be just as great)

meanwhile preheat oven to 450 and cook pasta al dente, about 3-5 min. less than the instructions recommend.

combine pasta and sauce and add parmesean cheese to the mixture, about 1/4 cup.

spoon into caserole dish,

cover top with a few slices of bree,

bread crumbs,

more paresean cheese,

and a drizzle of olive oil.

bake for about 10 minutes, until all of the cheese has melted and the breadcrumbs are golden and bubbling.

top with remaining parsley and one more drizzle of olive oil:

enjoy !
