I have not been feeling good these past few weeks. Besides the fact of JB passing away, I have had an infection – it manifested itself into a rash, a face rash – I looked like a clown! It went away, and within a day or two after finishing the antibiotics and steroids, it was back. Ugh, I hate it.
I figured I need to get (more) healthy – so in addition to the doctor telling me I need to get back on B12, I decided it is time to get better foods into my diet. I have a water app on my phone, reminding me of when it is time to hydrate. This is truly a big deal, because seriously none of us realize how quickly a person can get dehydrated. I have chicken and beef plans for the next few days, but for tonight – I didn’t have too much of an idea. So I decided to make pasta. Yes, pasta.
As you will see from these pictures, I whipped up a meal – and it turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. I first cooked minced garlic and chopped onions in butter – well, actually, Blue Bonnett – and as it cooked, oh the aroma – so good! While that was cooking, I had pasta boiling on the stove. Once it was all done, I took the pasta, the “grilled” onions and garlic and combined them in a pot with the pasta – and some spaghetti sauce (your choice) plus half a “standard” block of cream cheese. Baked all of this in a casserole for about a half an hour, give or take – and the result was…delicious!
Before baking this in the oven, I put some grated parmesan/romano on top – if you want, put some grated mozzarella on – and within a short time, I had a dinner that was healthy, and delicious – next time I make this, I will include chicken, or maybe shrimp – to increase/bump up the protein…right now, I’m full – and thankful I will have leftovers for tomorrow – and Jeff will have some too, unless he decides to be “healthy man” and take his regular food for lunch/dinner tomorrow…
