Well, I survived the trip, barely -- how his parents restrained themselves from
assassinating me with a rolled-up dollar bill I will never know. (Hey, I like to listen to death metal while I drive! Nothing wrong with that... right? Right? Guys?)
It took me a day or so to have enough energy to do something for dinner besides take-out. And when I did want to cook, I wanted comfort food.
So, I made some baked macaroni and cheese Tuesday night, except it wasn't quite mac and cheese.
I used spinach fettuccine.
I thought it might come out too runny or soggy, but you know what? It was great. I'd do it again. Probably when I have more people over, because the leftovers don't microwave well, but I will definitely make this again.
Oh, also -- if you like things all brown and crispy, use more bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. The amount the recipe calls for isn't enough to make the top all brown and crispy and yummy.
Tomorrow night: pasta salad! I'm going to throw some stuff into a bowl and see what happens!
