Tasty Attempts: Tuscan Bow Ties

Last year I had started posting What's For Dinner. While I really enjoyed those posts, it was hard to keep up with a weekly post, especially since Munchkin is getting a little more picky about his diet and we are having a lot of repeat meals (sometimes the same thing several times a week). I still wanted to keep posting tasty recipes but include a little more variety (like the appetizers and desserts that I make for various parties). So I am now posting Tasty Attempts every other Tuesday. The posts will include a variety of recipes, maybe some of them turn out tasty, maybe others are failed attempts.
Here is a little bit of a healthier dish (at least healthier than Snickers Salad). We were given the original A Man, A Can and a Plan cookbook as a wedding gift years and years ago. This cookbook has been a lifesaver, it is full of simple recipes to make with things you have in your pantry (and a couple of extras). Anyway, I was picking it up at the bookstore as a housewarming gift for a co-worker when I discovered this newer edition
I of course picked it up for some new recipes.
We recently tested out Tuscan Bow Ties
We of course had to alter the recipe a little, Hubby isn't a fan of peppers so we cut those back and then Munchkin decided he didn't want bowtie pasta.
 It was super fast and super simple to make and shockingly Munchkin ate 2 bowls of it and Hubby loved it too! We will definitely be revisiting this recipe!


  1. Looks pretty yummy. I'm all for simple!

    1. It was yummy and great for a meatless day! I really love these cookbooks, they are usually simple and tasty recipes (not to mention they are like board books so if you spill a little while cooking it is no big deal).
