Some days, you are running out of food in your house. Like the other day when I wanted pasta for lunch. But we really didn't have any pasta to speak of, just a few lasagne noodles. So, I measured them out with my scale, broke them into pieces, and started cooking.
Thrown Together Lunch Special!
5 lasagne noodles
1 patty pan squash (my grandpa used to call them "sputniks")
4 kale leaves, cut into ribbons
2 oz. goat cheese
parmesan for on top
In a large pot, boil some water for your noodles. Chop up your squash into bite-sized pieces. Boil the noodles and the squash together, until they both are done. Throw in the kale at the last minute, and cook for another minute. Drain.
Decide that instead of boring marinara sauce, you want to see what other things are in your fridge. Discover some goat cheese. Put the hot drained pasta and veggies back into your pot, and add about 2 oz. of the goat cheese. Stir to melt it. Add a little pepper. Stir. Serve with grated parmesan on top.
Be happy that you were able to use up random things in your house for a delicious lunch!
