Big belly haha.
Last night, my plan was to treat myself to whatever my little heart - and Valentine - desired for dinner. 5pm came around….nothing. I wasn’t even hungry. What a disappointment. The last two times this happened, I just kind of snacked my way through the evening – and woke up ravenous at 5am. That was not happening again so I decided to throw something together. What do you cook when you’re not in the mood for anything really?
I had pasta on hand, that sounded yummy…but I didn’t want a bowl of just pasta, and I always want spicy, soooooo -
I sautéed some yellow onions and garlic in olive oil while my whole wheat penne was boiling:
Added some salt, pepper, cayenne and crushed red pepper. After a few minutes, I threw in some roasted broccoli florets that I had left over from the other day. Once those were warmed up, I added a little bit of (vegan) cheese and white wine.
After that reduced a bit, I tossed in some penne and a tiny bit of red sauce just to coat everything. Just before serving, I tossed in some tomatoes.
Verdict: garlicky with a kick. Delish and easy. It literally took me 15 minutes to make and I have leftovers for whenever. I won’t need them today because I’m off to San Diego to play!
Have a fantastic Wednesday everyone! xo Shaina
