Failure Dinner

Tonight I thought I would make a mushroom and spinach alfredo sauce with pasta. I chopped up some onion, mushrooms, and spinach and sauteed them in butter while putting some water boiling. By the time my spaghetti was cooked the milk I mixed in with the sauteed vegetables was simmering. I mixed in some Parmesan cheese but sadly the pan was too hot and the sauce curdled. I was really sad after all the work and ingredients I put in the dish into this dish.  I didn’t want to throw it away but I really didn’t want to eat curdled sauce either; the cheese was all clumped together in yellow tinged clear liquid.

My solution was to mix in a couple cups of cheddar cheese, sprinkle some bread crumbs on top, and throw it in the oven. I went from spinach and mushroom alfredo sauce into spinach and mushroom mac (well spaghetti) and cheese. It didn’t come out half bad!

I had some iffy potatoes left in my cabinet so I decided to mash them before they went completely bad. I have always been told that the key to creamy mashed potatoes is to add cream cheese and I had some cream cheese so I tried it out. I then topped it with some cheddar cheese because I obviously have a cheese problem…
