Slop In A Pot

How’s that for selling it? Can you tell I once worked in advertising? Admittedly, maybe not my most successful career.

Seriously, every cuisine has some version of slop in a pot. Throw a bunch of ingredients together in one pot & somehow magic happens. This is a favorite go-to dish when I want pasta, but don’t have any spaghetti sauce in the freezer, and don’t want to spend any more time in the kitchen than I have to. OK, that’s pretty much a constant.

I really had nothing for dinner the other night and needed to throw something together in a hurry, and I happened to have all the ingredients on hand to make this. It’s sort of Tex-Mex meets Italy. I don’t know how that works, but it does. Why choose Hamburger Helper when you can make Tagliarini?

Cards on the table, I'm NOT a chef. Most of the time, I don't really even like to cook. But, I ALWAYS love to eat!....and I've had a lifetime of great cooks in my family showing me what good food's supposed to taste like. People are always asking me for recipes, asking what I'm cooking, so here you go. What I cook is probably as bizarre as my kids think I am. Sometimes healthy, sometimes artery clogging. Sometimes gourmet, sometimes just a quick fix to fill an empty place. Sometimes secret Italian family recipes, sometimes quick dump and stir out of cans. That's the way I roll. Take what you please, leave the rest. It's not brain surgery.
