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!).

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!
