AUTHOR: Julia TITLE: Presto Pasta Nights, Part 2 & 3 DATE: 9/16/2008 07:25:00 AM ----- BODY:
I came home from school on Monday evening absolutely starving… and knowing that I had already devoured the chicken ragu with chick pea pasta, I scrounged around the fridge for something to eat. In the crisper drawer I discovered Tuscan kale, corn and pork sausage: I had gone to the market on Saturday knowing I wanted to make something for Presto Pasta Nights, but not really sure what, so I bought the makings for several different dishes.

Not wanting to waste food, I made two different pasta dishes that I can now eat throughout the week. Supplementing with tomatoes and basil from the garden, I made:

Pasta with Tomatoes, Corn and Basil tossed with Fresh Mozzarella


Pasta with Wilted Kale, Tomatoes, Spicy Sausage and White Beans


The only addition to the recipes other than the ingredients listed were a little garlic, shallots, salt and pepper.

Thanks again, to Psychgrad for hosting the party!

We love those chick peas and navy beans. I think Billy would like either of these. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Blogger Julia DATE:9/16/2008 08:05:00 PM Hi Eve, You'll have to let me know how you like them. I've been eating the leftovers, and they're still delicious! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Blogger Webinsider DATE:9/16/2008 11:59:00 PM This comment has been removed by a blog administrator. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Blogger Psychgrad DATE:9/18/2008 11:14:00 PM Woah - another two pasta dishes!
