Dinner: Wednesday, January 14

Whole Wheat Rotini with Spinach Marinara and Meatballs
Garlic Asiago Breadsticks
Total Cost: $3.60

The spinach marinara was gorgeous! I put a half package of frozen spinach into a batch of spaghetti sauce and it looked beautiful. We already had "the talk" about frozen spinach, and you're OK with it, remember? It's fast, healthy, delicious, easy, convenient, cheap, fresher than fresh spinach, and delicious. The meatballs were added to the sauce and looked great atop the rotini. I have a friend who thinks rotini pasta is for babies. Not so. I love it! Anyway, use whatever pasta you like best.

The breadsticks came from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I just drizzled olive oil, crushed some garlic and grated some Asiago on top. The dough was actually half white, half wheat.

Easy! The perfect dinner!
