Happy Wednesday! Over the hump and one day closer to the weekend. I’ll take that!
Tonight, I made a delicious dish of Noodles & Company’s Whole Grain Tuscan Linguine! I absolutely loooove Noodles & Co and could probably eat it every night if I could. Unfortunately, I’m not made of money and dining with them adds up after awhile, so I decided to create my own version. I followed this recipe and it turned out great! Of course, it doesn’t taste “exactly” the same, but it’ll do. 🙂
Ingredients I used:
- Linguine (I used whole grain)
- Red Pepper
- Red Onion
- Olive Oil
- White Wine
- Chicken Broth
- Half & Half
- Parmesan Cheese
Meanwhile, I boiled some whole grain linguine (my favorite noodle!).
When the veggies had a nice crispness to them, I added some white wine, a dash of half & half and a small handful of parmesan cheese. When that turned into a nice little sauce, I added my noodles and it was done! Simple as that.
Really easy and delicious!
What I Want Wednesday
I’m sad to report I have yet to purchase those tennis shoes from last week’s WIWW. I think I did decide I definitely want to purchase those, but I’m going to hold out until April I think.
Part of the reason why I’m waiting on that, is because Kevin and I are going to Chicago for St. Patrick’s Day and we’re meeting my family there! It’s going to be SUCH a fun weekend and we have plans to stop by the wonderful IKEA on the way back to Des Moines. I could go nuts in Ikea stores and I am on a mission for ONE thing this trip: curtains.
We’ve lived in our apartment for 8 months and we don’t have curtains. That makes me sad because our walls are so white and bare. I just want some dang curtains! They are expensive though so we’re hoping to find some good deals at Ikea. Wish us luck!
