farfalle in tomato and mushroom sauce

Today’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner

The visit to the eldest sister’s place reminded me of how comforting a proper home cooked meal can be. And so I started the day prepping for a meal that would last me the entire day.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 gloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium size onion, chopped
  • siling labuyo (chili peppers), sliced thinly (optional)
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 big can (about a cup) of shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 slices of ham, cut into small squares (optional)
  • 1 can of whole peeled tomatoes, crushed
  • 1/2 cup of cheese (used feta cheese), cut into small cubes (optional)
  • butter and (canola) oil
  • 2 tbsp br0wn sugar
  • salt and pepper
  • farfalle (or other types of pasta), cooked based on the package instructions

Preparing the sauce:

  1. Heat pan for 3-5 minutes. Add oil and butter.
  2. Saute garlic, onion, siling labuyo, and bell pepper.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add mushrooms and ham. Wait until the mushroom slices turn slightly brown from the heat of the pan. This usually take 7-10 minutes on medium-high heat.
  5. Add the crushed canned whole tomatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  6. Adjust seasoning to your taste. Add sugar.
  7. Add cooked farfalle and cheese.
  8. Mix, serve, and enjoy 😀

No one  needs this recipe, really. I just needed something to fill this entry with. If you did manage to use it, that’d be great. At least someone benefitted from this.

It’s a rather uneventful day. Stayed at home. I was blessed with a few decent movies on tv. The movie plan we had for the day with the sisters didn’t pan out. I was too lazy to go out anyway.

Opted to start working on the adult coloring book I got from the eldest sister.
