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?
