I found a picture for a pasta dish, Penne with Ricotta & Mushrooms, in Chatelaine Magazine. Most of the ingredients are unobtainable so I made do with what I had.
Penne : Whole grain rotini
Olive oil : Canola oil
Fresh Rosemary : You’ve got to be kidding. I did find some dried thyme leaves though …
Mushrooms : Bingo!
Green onions : Regular onions
Ricotta : Cottage cheese, on best before date, blended smooth
Fresh parsley: See rosemary – compromised with frozen spinach
Grated grana padano or parmigiano reggiano : Kraft parmesan cheese
Here is the end result. Enticing or put out for the dogs.?
Actually, we both agreed that it tasted quite good, along with the grilled chicken.
