looks prettier than it tasted

i made a quick dinner yesterday that i thought would be pretty promising. whole wheat pasta with tomatoes, spinach and goat cheese. i cooked a can of crushed tomatoes with oregano and italian spices and then added a bunch of spinach and cooked until wilted. i added that to whole wheat pasta, tossed and added some goat cheese on top. it was ok but definitely missing something. i should have added garlic but i was too hungry to be bothered. i might try this again but definitely spice it up a lot more. actually, portabella mushrooms might have been a nice addition....

here it is pre-goat cheese.
pasta in the pot

i solved the problem! after i heated up my leftovers at lunch, i just drizzled some "sundried tomato" salad dressing on top. it was delish!! :)

It does look yummy. Maybe a little fresh basil could be the answer.

i love this dish chilled - i make it in the summertime for a light snack or side to any grilled dish.

you should definately try fresh basil next time with a little garlic and cracked pepper - what a difference those ingredients make!

now i'm hungry!!!
