I woke up yesterday (afternoon) determined to make minestrone soup. I had been planning to make it all week but life contrived not to let me. But my lazy Monday off seemed like the perfect time. But then I read the ingredient list and found I was missing half the ingredients. Ok, I had some ground beef so I thought I'll make beef barley soup. But I didn't have enough ingredients for that either. So I had to search for something to make. Yes, I could have made tacos or spaghetti. But we had tacos the night before with Jeff and Cherie and we had pasta several times last week. I found this Beef and Noodle with Tomato Gravy. But I made it with rice and omitted the milk (of course).
It was very yummy. Perhaps a little tomato sauce might help the creaminess.
But I still had the zucchini I bought for the minestrone soup. I didn't want to waste it. And luckily I saw this recipe on Got No Milk today. I left out the soy Parmesan since Tai doesn't like it. But it was good and pretty easy. I use panko and not breadcrumbs. Panko rocks!
Anyway it turned out to the a very satisfying dinner. It's starting to get colder here so I'll be cooking more and showing you the positive results.
