Aren't they cute? And won't they be perfect to sop up some thick sauce? Think macaroni shells on steroids. But here's the thing...I think I'm coming down with a cold so I want comfort food and I don't want to fuss. What's a girl to do....I could do scrambled eggs with goat cheese. I even have fresh homemade pesto in the fridge. Or I could heat up some of that Savory Autumn Stew we had for supper last night (which was delicious, I might add). All good choices, but tomorrow is Presto Pasta Nights as I said.
Thank goodness for Classico pasta sauces (I always have one or two kinds in the pantry for exactly when I'm too tired, too busy, too stressed, too in need of comfort food to go through the actual food prep...you know, the days when you want your mummy to be cooking for you). So here's what I did....
Mushroom Lumanconi - Ultimate Comfort Food in a Hurry
Boil up the lumanconi.
Saute sliced mushrooms with some chopped onion and garlic (because I still need to make the sauce my own).
Add some of the sauce (this time Florentine Spinach & Cheese) to the mushroom mixture.
Drain the pasta well and toss into the pan of sauce.
Voila and all done in 15 minutes.
What's do you do when you really want someone else to be the cook?
