The other night I found myself home alone (Dale was working with the band and Hannah was out with friends) and hungry. I wanted something delicious but I didn’t feel like going out for take out.
I scanned the fridge and found some summer squash and zucchini.
I searched the cupboards and found a box of penne pasta and a packet of Knorr’s 4 Cheese pasta sauce.
I put on a pot of water to boil for cooking the pasta. Then I started the cheese sauce. While that was cooking I used my mandoline to julienne the squashes. I sauteed the squash as the pasta boiled and when it was all done I tossed it all together in a big bowl.
I served it on a pretty plate with lots of fresh cracked pepper and parmesan cheese.
In just 15 minutes I had a delicious home-cooked meal with enough leftovers for lunch for the next couple of days.
It was way better than take out, too!
