Recipes that require many ingredients are often delicious but can also be quite expensive to prepare.
Simple meals using fresh ingredients are more cost effective, especially in the summer time when fresh produce is plentiful.
The other day I needed a quick meal. I had some zucchini and peppers and tomatoes on hand. I cut these up, drizzled them with olive oil, and chopped a bit of garlic to go with the mix. Twenty minutes in the oven while the pasta was cooking….
resulted in a quick, economical and delicious meal.
I added some garlic toast as a side, and there was enough pasta left over ( after my family visited for dinner ) to use for my lunch leftovers the next day.
We had a cool spell recently…were it hot and humid I’d have prepared this in the skillet, versus turning the oven on. It would work either way : )
