Pasta and Garlic Bread

Monday is grocery night so we needed something quick and easy for dinner. Since neither of us were hungry when I got home from work (SP was still sick) we did the shopping before we ate. We were famished when we got home, so I whipped up a quick pasta sauce and served it over ziti:


For the sauce I chopped the remains of a red onion I found in the fridge and cooked that in some oil with garlic, dried oregano and tomatoes, salt and pepper. It thickened up as the pasta cooked and was absolutely delicious. One of the best sauces I've made lately.

Since we'd gone to the store before dinner I was able to pick up a baguette for garlic bread with cheese:


We haven't indulged in this for awhile, but we both needed some comfort food. It was heavenly. I made a garlic butter using butter, garlic, salt, pepper and parsley and spread it on the baguette. I shredded cheddar, mozzarella and Pecorino and layered those on top. The bread baked to 400 degrees until the edges were crispy and the cheese melted. Yum!
Pin It!
