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!

Meat Sauce and Spaghetti

Tonight I made an attempt at a meat tomato sauce. I had a lot of hamburger and used Hunt’s diced tomatoes and Hunt’s sauce as the foundation with some onions and garlic. It seemed to take forever to cook but that is probably because I was really hungry. It turned out really well. I made a lot of extra so I will be eating it for a while.
