Saturday afternoon I had Rick, (my oldest son), Cristina, and my grandaughter Sophie over for a belated birthday dinner....and cake, of course! Rick's 28th B-day was on 2/25, and Mark's B-day....well, let's not say which B-day it was for him, but it was on 3/1.....(53....shhhh, lol).
(I made the garbanzos in the PC....of course!)
*note middle picture is 4 super large onions, 2 red bell peppers and 4 jalapenos....about 5-6 cups of veggies, cooked in about 2-3 bl olive oil with a big pinch of red pepper flakes, in a big saute pan for about 30 minutes. I only added one 1 pound pkg of thick spaghetti noodles and it served 6 people, generously, with at least one serving left over! Veggies are a great way to add nutrition, volume, AND flavor without the extra calories.
