Here is question 8! Enjoy!
What is your favorite supper for a hot summer evening? (For added “flavor”, post a photo or recipe link)
Well, I don’t really have a favorite supper these days- the vomiting has gotten somewhat better; instead of everything I eat, I’m now only doing it anywhere from 1-6 times a day. And I had 3 random days last week where I didn’t throw up at all.
Because it is so unpredictable, I don’t look at meals anymore as “hmm…what looks good to eat?” Instead I think “what is worth it?” For example, last night Yannick decided he wanted to order supper. A big criteria for choosing a place to order from was the price- I didn’t want to order something too expensive and not keep it down.
Plus I’m not a good one to talk about favorite suppers these days anyways, what with all the food aversions. Had you asked me this a few months ago I probably would have answered “ordering St-Hubert BBQ chicken” but now I have ZERO interest in eating chicken.
I have had no problems eating pasta though, so to make up for another crappy answer, let me share my easy rosé sauce recipe:
Cheese Tortellini with Rosé Sauce (really easy “recipe”)*
-Put a large pot of water on to boil.
-While you wait, melt about a tablespoon of margerine or butter in a medium pot, then add some chopped onion. I love onions, so I use at least 1 huge onion for a portion of pasta for 2-3 people, more if there is more pasta. I usually chop half, and thinly slice half. I don’t know if it tastes different after cooking, but I like the variation.
-Boil a package of fresh or frozen cheese tortellini. This usually takes about 9 minutes.
-Once the pasta is boiling, empty a small (125ml I think) can of Ayers tomato soup into the pot with the onions. Fill the empty can 2/3 of the way with cream, and add that to the pot too. If using milk, you can put a full can.
-Stir the sauce and let it simmer/heat until the cream and soup are well mixed. By this point the pasta should be ready.
-Drain the pasta, toss with the sauce, and serve. In the past I used to season the sauce with all kinds of spices and garlic, but as one of my favorite “comfort” foods, all I would add to this is some salt at the table.
It’s plain, but homey, and really good on a cold night. Or any night. And it reheats well too.
*Yes, you’re basically mixing store-bought pasta with tomato soup, cream and onions. I never said this was a Cordon-Bleu recipe. It’s still really tasty!
