I made this quite awhile back and almost forgot about it. It was tastier than it looks like it would be, Tyler's recipe for Penne with sausages and cream sauce. Basically just my regular penne with some sausages thrown in and then cream added to the tomatoes.
And then peas.
Sure, they are green. They add color to an otherwise monotone dish. I like peas. But I don't get them here. They don't add to the flavor or the texture. Actually they were rather difficult to eat in a bite with everything else. Instead you finished all the pasta and sausages and tomatoes in your bowl and ended up with some peas at the bottom, in a creamy tomato sauce. Which worked for my husband, as he dislikes peas and could ignore them easily. But even he said, "They don't actually add anything to it, do they?"
Which puts this Tyler recipe on the "Redo but with modifications" list. Which is an improvement over the "Never make this again" list. And with that, it becomes this week's submission to Tyler Florence Fridays. Oh and the recipe comes from Dinner at My House.
On a totally unrelated note, I thought I'd share a "recipe" from my oldest son. What he had for after school snack yesterday: creamy peanut butter on a plate, with spanish salted peanuts on top. Using his fingers, he would pick up a peanut and scoop up the peanut butter before popping it into his mouth. This is what he had left by the time I noticed he'd done this, though I suspect he had alot more when he started. (Which also explains why he barely ate dinner and didn't complain of hunger afterwards, he'd filled up on peanut butter!)
