I Love Pasta!



Hello Friday! Good to see you. I got out of work early today (3pm) so I wanted to celebrate an early start to the weekend by cooking up a big pot of my special red wine vegetable marinara. I really love this sauce. It's rich and deep with a hint of sweetness and full of a variety of veggies. Whatever I have in my fridge is what goes in this sauce. I had zucchini, carrots, red bell pepper and onions which made a wonderful chunky sauce. I haven't had pasta in a while so this was a treat. My husband brought home a fresh loaf of french bread. It was definitely a carb heavy dinner but it was worth it! Underneath the pasta there is a big handful of fresh baby spinach. The topping is "Parmezano Sprinkles" from The Ultimate Uncheese cookbook.

Hello Friday to you!!! We had pasta for dinner over here too but with "Bertolli" Portobello Mushroom with Merlot. I know for sure that yours must be very tasty with all kinds of yummy veggies you have. I love how you decorate the plate with fresh baby spinach, such a great idea. I hope you don't mind if I would copy your idea next time I cook pasta. =D

I love pasta too! Red wine tomato sauce sounds delicious! Especially with lots of veggies like zucchini and spinach.

I used to love pasta but now it doesn't hold that much appeal for me. However, gnocchi is another story!!

That sounds delicious! And you made it healthy with the spinach. Do you use canned tomatoes?
