Monday June 1, 2009 - Using my Pantry & Freezer


Weight Watcher Mint Ice Cream Sandwich (2 Pts)


Pasta with bacon & goat cheese (12 Pts)
Garlic Bread (2 Pts)

To make the pasta first I cooked about 8 oz of pasta (a mix of whole wheat
and regular that were from half used boxes in the pantry) drained it and put it aside. In a separate pan I cooked 4 slices of chopped bacon until it was crisp. I removed most of the bacon grease from the pan, replaced it with some olive oil and then added 1/2 chopped onion and 5 cloves of chopped garlic (we like garlic). I cooked the onions and garlic until they were translucent. At this point I added the pasta to the pan and stirred it around until the onion mixture was well dispersed. Then I added about 1/2 cup of chopped roasted red peppers (from a jar I had in the pantry) and a can of chopped tomatoes (also from the pantry) and stirred those in. I added salt, pepper to taste, a sprinkling of Splenda (to cut the acid of the tomatoes) and about a tsp of dried basil. Finally I added some goat cheese (about 2 oz) and stirred that in until it had melted. I served this with a little crumble of a of the goat cheese and a sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. This made 4 servings. It got a thumbs up from Marty!
