Spiral Pasta In Mushroom Pasta Sauce

This is another simple dinner to prepare. It's not under the healthy meal category because I use several processed food like sausages and canned pasta sauce. The good thing is I try to add more greens or fresh ingredients like onion, lettuce, fresh button mushrooms, potato, broccoli, or cauliflower depending on what I have in the fridge. After all, it doesn't sound so bad, right? It can be a yummylicious comfort meal for a hectic day. Doesn't it look glorious? :)

I would like to submit the dish to Presto Pasta Night #129 hosted by the Ruth from Once Upon A Feast. This is the last minute entry. I hope it's not too late.

minchow said...

I love to mix up my own veg pasta sauce too, so I can throw in all the vegetables I want!! Vegetables seem to be scarce when I try to eat out and cheaply, so I max my veg intake when I can cook at home!

daphne said...

love the use of mixed herbs, It is an excellent idea to use can of tomatoes for the mushroom sauce!

Ruth Daniels said...

Never too late for a tasty treat. Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Night.

Allie, oh yea! I cook almost everyday except Saturday. :)

550ml jar of faith, normally I won't order pasta when dining out, as the pasta serving is too huge for me. I like little amount of pasta with lots of ingredients, :)

daphne, I got lots of mixed herbs from my previous trip to Perth. It costs cheaper in Australia.

Ruth, oh thank you! I've seen the round up of the week, great!

Food for Tots, I used a can of Prego Pasta Sauce (mushroom flavored).

Tigerfiah, this is a simple recipe for me when I'm lazy to think of what to cook.

Dora, you should try it out!

Elin Chia said...

It looks delicious :) Colorful too...makes it more interesting :) I love anything mushroom haha

Joanne said...

Even with sausage and jarred sauce, this is still pretty healthy! Especially considering the fact that most people are sitting around eating frozen dinners. I think it looks delicious!

Little Inbox said...

Elin, fresh mushrooms are really ingredients for many dishes. I love it too.

Joanne, yes you are right. The nutrition value is definitely higher than frozen food. :)
