While I stand by the above, I've now paired it with Cube Steak and Gravy (Crock Pot) Cube Steak and Gravy (Crock Pot)
Had the LDS Missionaries over for dinner last week. They were very restrained the first time. They pigged out on seconds! They really liked the combo. And there was still leftovers for me for the next two days!
That is a lousy photo. I took it with my cellphone. The colors of the sauteed pasta didn't show up. Trust me, I toasted the pasta. Next time I'll use a real camera.
Good alternative to plain white rice! It reminds me of Lebanese rice.
