Best thing of the day was getting my hair cut and colored by Eddie at Lox Salon.  I was way past due.  That’s what happens when you wait until you need a haircut to book, and your stylist is booked out another four weeks. 

For dinner:  Salad leftover from yesterday with wholegrain chips; Minestrone Pasta; Sourdough Bread

Recipe for Minestrone Pasta:

15 oz penne pasta

5 carrots, peeled and chopped

4 sticks celery, chopped

1 green bell pepper, diced

2 tsp Italian seasoning

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1-½ tbsp minced garlic

4 roma tomatoes, chopped

5 cups spinach

2 tsp dried basil

1-¼ cups vegetable broth

⅔ cup shredded parmesan cheese

Prepare pasta per package directions.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over high heat.  Add celery, green bell pepper, onion, carrot, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and garlic.

Cook for 8 minutes, adding a little water to prevent sticking.

Add chopped Roma tomatoes to the skillet along with broth.  Cook 3 minutes longer.

Add drained penne, spinach, and basil.

Season with salt and pepper.

Cook 1-2 minutes more to heat through and to wilt the spinach.

Sprinkle with parmesan after plating if desired.
