Improvisation

Is it edible?

Is it edible?

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.
