Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 48

Recipe 242
Tomato-Basil Pasta Nests
Matt rating ****1/2

Ingredients used:

Coarse salt
Angel hair pasta
Garlic cloves
Yellow onion
Crushed tomatoes
Coarse black pepper
Basil leaves
Pesto sauce
Crusty bread

This was definitely one of the easier meals to prepare - it took all of about 15 minutes! I must admit that I was not a fan of pesto awhile back, but it has become an acquired taste and now I love it! I think that I actually would have used more than the recipe called for just to be able to taste it a little better. I added a simple salad of red leaf lettuce drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and a dash of salt and pepper. The baguette I picked up at the store yesterday was great for mopping up the sauce from the pasta. Good stuff Maynard!
