Pasta 1, 2, 3...

Many times I throw something together and it may be ok, but not really worth mentioning.  Or, it may have just been to random and complicated that I simply can not remember everything that went into creating it and therefore could in noway attempt to blog about it.  This dinner was one of those that at first I would have thought it to fall in the first category.  It is sooo simple, almost too simple.  But as we were eating it, I thought, "I've gotta blog about this... it's just too good."  The greatest part about it, is aside from the pasta ans seasoning it only requires 3 ingredients!  1, 2, 3!  An easy weeknight meal that you can literally have in the table in 15 minutes!  How great is that?? 

This is the basic version.  Serve it with a simple salad, add some chicken if you'd like, but you really don't need to do anything to it.  Enjoy!

2 cups pasta
1 can stewed tomatoes
2 tbls butter
2 oz cream cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
Onion Powder (optional)
Garlic (Optional)

Boil pasta according to directions on box.

While pasta is cooking, pour tomatoes and juice in a bowl.  Pull out tomatoes and chop (reserving liquid) and add back to bowl.

Once pasta is done, drain and add back to pot over med heat.  Add remaining ingredients and stir until butter and cream cheese are melted and heated through, about 3 min. Enjoy!

  1. Love the use of cream cheese! I'm with you, not everything that one makes needs to be posted. But I don't only post things that are fantastic either - mainly because I'm not that talented yet.
