Perfect Pasta Times Two

My Honey always asks why I make soooooo much pasta when it's just the two of us.  He forgets about the lovely frittatas and interesting lunches he gets to enjoy (and never feel like leftovers).  And I really only have to spend minimal time in the kitchen.   Not that I don't LOVE spending time in my kitchen, it's just that lately, more often than not, I run out of time and need something quick.   .  

Still on my Meatless Monday (now Saturday through Monday) kick, I whipped up this heavenly dish of

knowing that the kids would be here for lunch on Sunday and it would make a fantastic frittata (no photo since we were all having too much fun).   So delicious as a frittata that my Honey took some leftovers for lunch on Monday.... see how one box of pasta goes so far, so easily, so cheaply, so healthily and so deliciously.

How do you stretch your meals and what's your "base"  .... pasta, rice, salad....?

This week Sarah of La Cuisine de Sarah is hosting Presto Pasta Nights.  Lately I've been missing out on the fun - so this week it's a two for one deal!.   If you have a pasta you'd like to share with the rest of us on the roundup, just write about it,  link to Presto Pasta Night and La Cuisine de Sarah and send your link to lacuisinedesarah (at) gmail (dot)com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by Thursday

And for all my carnivorous friends... come back tomorrow for the Chilean Grilled Flank Steak with Pebre which was spectacular, if I do say so myself.

I always make more than enough pasta for at least four days of eating! But that's mainly because I really do love leftovers. Beet greens and chickpeas sound like an awesome combination...super healthy!
