The very existence of 'honey boo boo' in our lexicon and culture says
a lot about us, too. And it's not good.
Jessie Price, the editor for the cookbook "EatingWell on a Budget,"
emailed me a nice recipe that I originally wanted to use in the story. It
didn't fit, but I paste it here because it sounds tasty:Sweet
Potato & Red Pepper Pasta8 ounces whole-wheat angel hair pasta2
tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided4 cloves garlic, minced3
cups shredded, peeled sweet potato, (about 1 medium)1 large red bell
pepper, thinly sliced1 cup diced plum tomatoes1/2 cup water2
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar, or lemon juice3/4 teaspoon salt1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese (I'll put the rest of the recipe
in the next comment)You can also find the full recipe here:http://bit.ly/3Ffrst(By the way, Deseret News staff can post URLs
The continuation of Jessie Price's recipe from EatingHealthy.com:PREPARATION1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta
until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes or according to package directions.2. Meanwhile, place 1 tablespoon oil and garlic in a large skillet. Cook over
medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is sizzling and fragrant, 2
to 5 minutes. Add sweet potato, bell pepper, tomatoes and water and cook,
stirring occasionally, until the bell pepper is tender-crisp, 5 to 7 minutes.
Remove from the heat; cover and keep warm.3. Drain the pasta,
reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Return the pasta to the pot. Add the
vegetable mixture, the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, parsley, tarragon, vinegar
(or lemon juice), salt and cheese; toss to combine. Add the reserved pasta
water, 2 tablespoons at a time, to achieve the desired consistency.You can also find the full recipe here:http://bit.ly/3Ffrst
I don't understand what would posses anyone to put margarine in a spagetti
sauce? I think most poor would just do the pasta and ketchup. Though I think you
can get canned pasta sauce for less than the cost of ketchup? It's all made
out of tomatoes but with the canned sauce you may get another veggie or two
