Tonight SP made spaghetti with red clam sauce:
... from a newspaper article about pantry cooking. It was a great dish, with just a hint of spice from the red pepper flakes and some slight brininess from the clams. SP even cooked the pasta perfectly. If we didn't always save half our dinner for lunch the next day I definitely would have had seconds.
I was going to make cheesy garlic bread to go with dinner, but the store was out of baguettes so I threw together a salad:
... of romaine hearts, sliced mushrooms and scallions. I had mine with Caesar vinaigrette and SP had his with bleu cheese. It was a very yummy and satisfying dinner made with stuff we keep on hand (except for the canned clams, although we could easily keep a few cans in the pantry).
