Here is a quick and easy meatless Lenten dinner….a little change from my old grilled cheese and/or fish sticks Friday.
If you have Lenten resolutions, how are you doing? I gave up sweets and so far so good-and boy does it make me feel better anyways. Of course for the first week, I desperately wanted to stick my head in a chocolate fountain, but the cravings have calmed somewhat. I still have to avert my eyes when walking down the candy aisle at the grocery store, so they haven’t subsided completely.
3/4 of a 32 oz. box of pasta (I use rotini or ziti)
1/4 cup butter
1 envelope Knorr’s vegetable soup mix
1 1/2 teaspoons all purpose flour
2 cups milk
2 TBS grated Parmesan cheese
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add pasta. Cook till al dente, and drain.
2. In a saucepan melt butter. Blend Knorr soup mix with flour and milk, and then add to saucepan. Stir. Bring to a soft boil, and then reduce heat to low and simmer for 7-10 minutes. Stir in grated cheese.
3. Toss with cooked pasta and serve.
(This makes enough for all seven of us….I usually serve with a salad and garlic bread.)
