We were too lazy & lethargic to get our asses out to dinner after a day of work and ridiculously sweltering sun. So I pulled out the pasta & bottle sauce. Turned out pretty good according to DH.

Quick tip, sauce may come from a bottle, but actually bothering heat it over a pan makes the difference! It gets yummier, trust me. Here's what I did.

Chop up 2 cloves of fresh garlic, fry til fragrant, add sauce slowly, stir in extra goodies like seafood, mushrooms, shredded chicken, cube veges, you get the idea, simmer, toss in loads of fresh gound pepper, bit of herbs (those in the bottle ain't fragrant after sitting in for so long), simmer over small fire til your pasta is al dente, serve quick!

If you're adding cheese, do it while the sauce is piping hot. It melts in and voila. Dinner. ;+)

ps: I'm loving the quality of Marks & Spencer pasta. And I merely bagged their choco biscuits before! Boy if only I can grocery shop there everyday, I'll be set.

Hi Lyn,
Just been reading through your many posts since my last visit :)
The pasta dish sounds delish (good old M&S food) I miss it.
Interesting link about the most depressing day too.
Good luck with all your studies, sewings etc. :D
