So my roommates and I decided to have “family dinners” whenever possible. We decide on the menu and we all pick up a few things- then we spend time cooking and, of course, eating a delicious meal!
Oh, and there is wine involved…
Last night we roasted vegetables (onions, carrots, asparagus, zucchini, and eggplant), and tossed them in a homemade roasted garlic balsamic dressing. We also picked up some fresh whole wheat spaghetti and cooked that in a homemade marinara sauce…with lots of fresh basil.
Fresh pasta makes all the difference. We got ours from Assenti’s in Little Italy.
I topped my pasta with giardinara, obviously…and parmesan cheese too!
On a side note, meet my roommate’s cat, Nia. I am obsessed with her.
