With the hubby gone it’s been a lot easier to make “chick” food.  Though I get to make it sometimes while he’s around, it’s gotta be some kind of side dish with something more “filling” as the main course.

Last night, I got a chance to try a new recipe.  Garlicky Angel Hair Pasta with Roasted Grape Tomatoes.  Definitely chick-food.  Definitely delicious.  Basically, it’s lightly-browned-garlic infused olive oil, tossed with angel hair pasta (in my case whole wheat angel hair), tossed again with broiled grape tomatoes (slightly blackened), basil and parmesean. 

I think I used plum tomatoes instead of grape tomatoes though, since they were slightly larger and juicier than the grape usually are.  They also browned a little more under the broiler than the picture on the recipe, but the inside flesh was just right.  It even got on the pasta a little better than the grape tomatoes would have.  Anyway, it was delicious.  I ate the whole thing.  I meant to pair it with a salad, but since I’d had so many greens/veggies throughout the day already and I was really quite tired, I just ate the pasta.

Ok, granted my picture is not as great as the one in the recipe, but it was still pretty good.  Had I used more garlic, cooked the noodles just a minute or two longer and used shredded instead of grated parmesean, this would have been a superb dish. 

Also eaten this week:
Sun:
Vegetarian Bean Chili/Stew
Mon: Pescado Sudado (Steamed Fish Fillets – Peruvian Style) and cooked greens. I think I had kale or collard, not sure.
Tues: Green Beans a la South of France with Cucumber/Tomato Salad
Wed: dinner at the country club (fish & potatoes)

I’m still undecided as to what I should make tonight for Shabbat.  I have a TON more green beans left (from our weekly CSA box) and would like to incorporate them into the menu somehow… maybe chicken, too?
