Sunday Dinner Pasta Pomodoro

As promised, today was pretty wet. It rained all night last night and it's still raining now. Good for the environment here, but bad for us and the animals. Luke and Leia have gotten so accustomed to going for long walks daily that when they can't go, they get a bit stir crazy. It was a good day to stay in and watch football. Go Jets!!! (I'm a huge Cowboys fan, but if you watch football even casually you probably know how good they were this year)

The park was dead. Everyone hid out in the coaches or their homes. The only people who braved the elements were the pet owners, like us whose pets just wouldn't take no for an answer. At least the temperature was warm (upper 60's), so it really wasn't too bad being outside except for the getting wet part ;-).

I skipped breakfast again today, and lunch was simple cold cut sandwiches so I didn't bore you with the details. Dinner tonight however was one of my favorites, pasta! Nancy started making this recipe about a year ago and it has quickly become a staple. We usually enjoy this meal once or twice a month. The sauce is tangy and slightly sweet and clings to the pasta providing flavor in every bite. It's a light sauce though, not very acidic so no worries about acid reflux even if you eat a bit of a late dinner.

If you are a pasta lover like me, and you want to eat a bit lighter, I highly recommend this meal. We have even started modifying this recipe from time to time by adding meat or using ravioli or both. Very nice and very versatile.
