So, for last night's dinner with my grandson, Aidan (he's seven), I cooked some spaghetti pasta and after I drained it and while it sat in the sink, I tossed some chopped onion, fresh mushrooms (about 1/2 pound) in the pasta pan and sauteed them until they were cooked through. I tossed in a drained can of diced tomatoes and two "garlic/basil ice cubes" and the drained pasta. I tossed it and served with a sprinkling of feta and Parmesan cheese and a bit of salt and pepper. It was wonderful! Aidan ate it all, though he prefers canned mushrooms!
So for Tom's dinner at work tonight, imagine my surprise when I pulled out the leftover pasta/tomato/mushroom/garlic/basil concoction and it was half gone!! He took some to work ... now I have to wonder if he noticed there was no meat in there??? Only time will tell!
