Quick Meals: Pasta Fixes

I apologize to everyone who reads SybDive for not posting for over a week now.

The good news is that Biscotteria Margherita is going great gangbusters and the lemon-poppy seed and coffee-granola biscotti have both been getting major raves. (Shameless plug alert! Place your orders now: call or text 0915-8517362.)

Anyways, given how I go to the office in the daytime and bake biscotti in the evenings (and sometimes at the break of dawn!), my eating habits have been rather sketchy. I’m just glad that pasta doesn’t take so long to prepare and I can store the cooked noodles in the fridge, nuke ’em to serving temp, and then throw in the sauce of my choice.

These are particularly nice whenever you want a quick pasta meal:

  • Creamed Shiitake Mushroom Pesto from Jaq’s Kitchen (Pictured above) This gorgeously creamy take on traditional basil pesto is quite flavorful and the chunky bits of mushroom make it really good.
  • Filippo Berio’s Sun-dried Tomato Pesto This is a great way to keep things deliciously simple. A tablespoonful of this onto a serve of hot pasta plus a generous blizzard of Parmesan = yum-o!
  • Gourmet Daing from Connie’s Kitchen This particular product isn’t so salty, but makes for a really savory treat when mixed into pasta. Add a fresh, diced tomato and you’re good to go.
