What's For Dinner Monday!

Dinner on the weeknights is not usually exciting. I am usually eating alone and grabbling leftovers or soup. Tonight I decided to cook something special just for me.

I wanted something healthy since we ate like freaking hogs all weekend. Don't even ask. Hint-PORK BUTT. That's all I am saying about that.

Tonight I fixed some whole wheat spaghetti noodles, cooked a bit more than usual because I don't like whole grain pasta with tooth. It is chewy and feels crappy in my mouth. I cook the wholewheat spahetti till it is soft enough to not stick to my teeth.

While the pasta was cooking I went on the hunt for ingredients to mix with the cooked pasta.
Spinach, cooked peppers and onions from Saturdays Pork Roast (ooops i said too much), fresh chopped garlic, anchovies (I need protein), and my favorite new hard italian cheese, Lotella are all going into the cooked pasta. I added some better butter and parsley, oregano, basil, and hot pepper flakes too. I mixed it all up real good and then tasted it. It's perfect!
Oh yummy yum! I know you want some!
