Frozen Pasta Saves the Day

Good One

Sometimes there is not enough time in the day to get dinner on the table by 6. On those busy days, I turn to frozen pasta. Last Friday, I stumbled upon a new techinque to cook frozen pasta.
In the search to cook something interesting, I went to Whole Foods and purchased a pound of fresh spinach pasta that I was going to dress in a garlic cream sauce. In my haste, I overcooked my pasta and was left with a pot full of cream sauce.

What should I do? What could I do? I dumped the spinach pasta and went to my freezer, pulled out a bag of frozen ricotta capellini and dumped it into my garlic cream sauce. Added some left over pot water to the cream sauce and let it cook for 7 minutes. Believe it or not it worked so well that my husband asked me to make it again Saturday night where my sister and cousin both commented that it was good and they are not vegetarians.

So next time your grocery store is having a sale on frozen pasta, pick up a few bags. You never know when you will need it to save the day.
