but certainly dreary.
In response to the cold rain
I made a warm and filling pasta bake.
Tomatoes from my gardens
picked at perfection and frozen before the sun's warmth had left them.
Slow cooked all day
until they were a beautiful sauce.
Whole wheat penne pasta,
shredded basil leaves,
red and green peppers,
onions and mushrooms,
a little bit of hot red pepper,
and a ton of cheeses.. parmesan, romano, mozzarella..
Baked till hot and bubbly.
Warm against the cold, dark night
and, oh so good.
