Tortellini with Eggplant Vegetable MarinaraJuly 12, 2009 at 3:05 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 6 Comments
James and I have a new obsession
Iced Venti Nonfat Latte. With some agave squirted in. Mmmm.. it kind of reminds me of chocolate milk. James was given a bunch of starbucks gift cards and let me tell you…we have been putting them to good use.
James ordered this one. Before we got up to the speaker (we were in the drive-thru) he asked me again what we were getting. I told him. The spotlight is on him and what does he order? “umm yea can I get a Venti Grande light?” He then turns toward me with a face saying “I did good, right?” I was crying I was laughing so hard! And of course immediately texted my sister since she used to be a barista at starbucks. Oh the hilarity!
I saw a recipe in the latest eating well for Eggplant Pomodoro Pasta and knew that would be the perfect way to use up the pretty lady eggplant we had gotten at the farmers market. I cut the eggplant into bigger chunks to keep the meaty texture. I also put some zucchini, carrots and green pepper. While that was all simmering in the pan I put some parsley, red pepper, capers, red wine vinegar and about a half a cup of marinara to lightly coat all the veggies and bring the dish together.
The tortellini was from Trader Joe’s. It was just kind of meh. I couldn’t really taste the cheesey interior. But I guess you can’t expect too much from dried tortellini in a bag, huh?
At least the veggies turned out well! This is James’ plate. Mine was mainly a mound of veggies with a few tortellini sprinkled on it.
Tomorrow’s my birthday! woot woot!
I have lots more pictures of meals to show you. We’ve had some family stuff going on this week so I haven’t felt much like posting but I am going to put some posts together today because we’ve been eatin some good stuff 😉 Have a fab Sunday!!
