Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner…and then some

In the kitchen at Di's House

Meatless Monday – Pasta with Veggies and Homemade Bread

on September 9, 2013

I wanted to keep it simple tonight, no real recipe.  I chopped up some veggies (broccoli, snap peas, carrots, red bell pepper, baby bella mushrooms), sauteed them, and mixed them up with some spaghetti, olive oil, garlic, and Penzey’s Sicilian Salad Dressing spice mix.


I would be happy with just this for dinner, but felt bad for my husband and made some bread to go along with the pasta.  Yes, I use white flour.  With gluten.  It seems like every other person I meet these days is gluten free and no white flour.  I mixed up the dough in the bread machine and formed it into a loaf in a regular loaf pan.  It’s a simple recipe for “Peasant Bread”:  1 cup water, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. sugar, 2 c. flour (I ended up using 2 1/2 cups), and 1 1/2 tsp. yeast.  I baked it at 375F for about 25 minutes.  This makes the best toast.
