After a long day at work — is there really anything better than a meal full of comfort foods?
Thursdays are my late nights (have I mentioned that before 😉 — so by the time the day is done, I’m ready for a good meal and relaxation. Tonight absolutely fit that bill.
Pasta Night – Jara Style
Does anyone remember Sandra Dee’s Semi-Homemade? That is the theme for tonights dinner.
It started with a package of Pasta Prima Organic Spinach and Cheese Raviolo
Zach and I picked this up last time we were at CostCo. We’ve gotten pasta from them before and are normally very happy.
The pasta itself look pretty spectacular, so the only thing we added to it was some Tomato Basil red sauce from Sprouts heated up on the stove top.
While the pasta boiled, I prepped us a side salad to make sure we were getting some fresh greens in with our meal.
The base of our salad was Organic Girl’s Baby Spring Mix
With a chopped green pepper, broccoli, and half a yellow onion left over from mexican. Does anyone else use salads as a garbage disposal?
The salads were the perfect fresh side to the warm, delicious pasta puffs 🙂
Does anyone know how to make pasta look good?
And nothing pairs better with a pasta meal than a glass of red wine.
Pasta is by far one of my favorite comfort foods to make at home. Especially when you don’t feel like a lot of prep or wait time. Quick, easy, and satisfying. Especially when it’s paired with a fresh side salad.
Question of the Night: What’s your go-to comfort food meal after a long day?
