    Veggie Night!
    This was a great pasta dish, and very easy. I was a bit clunky looking, only because I was too lazy to chop things up. I was more interested in enjoying my wine, lol.

    I may post, but it uses Philadelphia Cooking Cream, which I know isn't available to everyone, but I suppose you could easily make your own cooking cream.

    I sauteed onions, garlic, grape tomatoes, red peppers, mushrooms, artichokes, and black olives, until everything was tender and the tomatoes just started to break down. Then tossed the pasta with the cream and the veggies. The heat melted the cream and made a delicious dish.
    The pasta was genovisi (sp?), from my local Italian market, a very thin twisted pasta. Quite tasty.

    Finished it with feta.



    And yep, my pasta on the grill as well. Why not? Just takes a bit longer, but as long as I was cooking the topping, it didn't matter.

    Hmmm ... Garlic cream!! Just the words conjure up the most delicious pasta imaginable!!! icon_biggrin.gif

    You're a real whizz with a grill. Is there a reason why you do almost everything -- and so delicious -- on a grill? I'd think it was quite difficult? icon_confused.gif

    Just like a stove Zurie ... same thing.

    The Philadelphia Cheese company makes a cooking cream.
    It has cream cheese, regular cream, garlic, herbs and it spreadable, but melts when added to hot foods and makes a sauce. Almost makes like a 'creamy cheese sauce.' I guess like making a roux, then adding cream cheese, milk and some herbs. But, it comes prepared; just add and mix. It honestly wasn't that bad. For a prepared sauce that is. Tasty. A quick inexpensive dinner, and vegetarian too.

    SC, looks good and the veggies in the pan are so pretty. What I have done once or twice is when I use an ingredient that may not be common the I post what it is close to or what can be used in place of icon_wink.gif

    I think I may do that, it was really good and easy; but I may mention the alternate cream sauce.

    I was surprised that the cream was really tasty. Sure made an easy meal. I would definitely dice finer for company; but I was more into the wine and my candles LOL and feet up on my chair with one kitty in my lap

    It's so nice out, I just hate being inside ... and if it can be made on the stove ... it can be made on the grill.
