‘Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That’ Pasta Lunch
My current situation: I’m working from home, and it’s 2 p.m., and I haven’t showered today. I need to put clean sheets on Norah’s bed because, God bless her, she peed through her diaper last night. I also have two freelance stories and a hotel review due by 5.
At this point in my day, grocery shopping is out of the question. And I rarely order in. It’s just not my thing.
But a quick pantry and garden raid manifested this tasty meal:
I would even serve this to company. Well, a close friend anyway.
Here’s what all is in the bowl:
- Whole grain spaghetti.
- Olive oil.
- Salt and pepper.
- Home-grown oregano. Yay, me!
- Shredded Romano and mozzarella cheeses.
- Dried, store-bought basil. (For some reason, the basil seeds I planted more than a month ago have turned up nothing so far. Annoyed.)
- Diced, home-grown red peppers for the win!
What’s your go-to “ain’t nobody got time for that” meal?
