Easy Pasta Night

The other night I came home from work and wanted a satisfying dinner, and fast.  I had a pound of lean ground beef ready to be transformed into something, a pound of fancy Italian pasta (Pastene).  The pasta was in the form of long, wide noodles, about 1/2 an inch across and ruffled on the edges.  It reminded me of a mini-lasagna noodle.  In my pantry was a jar of Paul Newman's Cabernet Marinara, and in the fridge was some coarsely grated Parmesan cheese.  Katie had fresh veggies and a ready-to-go bag of lettuce greens. Viola!  A perfect, easy, Italian dinner and I barely broke a sweat!  Here are a few photos of an easy evening dinner (missing a reluctant-to-be photographed Henry - we've entered a new phase!).

Easy meat sauce - a lb. of ground beef
and a jar of Paul Newman's Cabernet Marinara!

Pasta Night Pete!  He loved it!

How about the next time you want something very satisfying but don't want to do all the work, let Paul Newman and a bag of Pastene noodles assist you in the kitchen!
