Creative Italian

  Have you seen the deals on Asian and Italian food at Aldi this week? Holy cow! We had an amazing sushi feast with friends Thursday night, and tonight it was creative Italian.

  Creative? How? Well, Chris and Rhiannon made two wonderful sauces, and a side salad, while I drank cheap wine and blogged. AWESOME!

  Because of the wine part, I will explain mostly in photos.

Gnocchi packaged......

Cooked gnocchi. 2 minutes!!!!!!!!!

Sauce one: my children LOVE these combined. Add a little nutritional yeast. I can't explain it, but it is pretty f@#$ing good.

Sauce two: Butternut squash soup and a roux.

soup, onions,  vegan butter, garlic

Pagan boy cooking in his new Night's Watch shirt. Super hot!

Parsley added - delicious!

And again, the final product. Butternut squash sauce on the left, "orange" sauce on the right.

And there you have it. 100% Aldi, 100% vegetarian, 100% sexy.

  1. I never thought of combining the "red" and "white" sauces like that! (the kid calls them by their colors!) and the butternut squash sauce sounds yummy!
