If it looks plain it probably taste that way! PASTA PASTA

Pasta can be that quick fix meal for the family or even when entertaining on short notice. It cook quickly even when making a lot and can be spruced to perfection with just a few shakes of this and that.
Ok you have your basic ingredients pasta, sauce, and meat. All which can be purchased at the store and made in 10 mins of less if you have everything out. I highly recommend making your own sauce though. If you make your own cheese sauce or a red sauce you can jar it and use it over the week in pasta and lasagna. It does take a good bit more effort to make your own sauce but the taste difference is like WHAM BHAM that's good different.

Ok for tonight though lets say you just have store bought sauce, some pre cooked shrimp, and noodles. What can you do to make this more interesting...
Add a veggie.. broccoli, peas, or spinach
Hit it with some heat.. Chili powder sprinkled in
Sprinkle with love.. or in guy language ...sprinkle with cheese when served.
Serve with toast and Salad and you have a nice Italian restaurant style mill.
Once again did we mention you can make all of the above in less than 30 mins??
Mommy's plus pasta = Love
