Week 3: Pasta with Random Green Herb

Penne noodles + Ragu sauce is a pretty familiar dish at my table.  But this week, we had a mystery ingredient!

Seriously, what is it?

Seriously, what is it?

 

The roomie and I definitely looked at it for a while for the little green snake it resembles. Finally she dug her nail in and took a sniff (very brave considering I was ready to throw it out) and proclaimed “It’s garlic!”

Not sure what happened to the bulbs, or rest of the stalks, or you know – any of the identifying parts of the plant but it had a nice fresh garlic taste so I dropped it into an otherwise normal bowl of pasta and sauce and called it dinner and leftovers.

This has been a terribly slow week for cooking but I have a few awesome ideas for next week set up – stay tuned!
