Asparagus and Tomato Stir Fry Saute Recipe

I did something a naughty.

I made a meal with food that Husband does not like.

Husband had to work late and was not going to be home for dinner. It’s the perfect time to make the asparagus he bought because he knows I like it.

I eyed balled the amounts. I was even naughtier because I used frozen asparagus. It was less expensive than fresh and will last longer since I had to find a time when I was cooking for myself.

I sautéed in olive oil:

Summer squash (frozen fresh from last summer)

Fresh tomatoes

Fresh Basil (from my patio herb garden.) Dried basil works too)

Minced garlic

Whole wheat egg noodles

I sautéed the vegetables until the squash was cooked thought. I served it over egg noodles because I didn't have whole wheat egg noodles because egg noodles cook up in a snap.  

A nice little meal that didn’t take a lot of time to make or heat up the kitchen too much. It’s perfect for summer!

  2. I have to admit, when I read "I don’t even know if egg noodles come in a whole wheat version. Do they?", I pretty much had to stop myself from face-palming.

    Then I did a little digging, and realized that wheat flour does go into egg noodles. For some reason, I guess I just had this idea that egg noodles were...flour free.

    Anyway, you can probably find some whole wheat egg noodles. Or you could just make them. Making noodles is easy and fun, and you can just substitute AP flour for whole wheat flour.

    I have a food blog, too, for easy recipes even a poor, clueless college student could make. Definitely, I can see myself pulling some inspiration from here. You have a lot to look at. I'd love it if you'd like to take a look at my blog: http://www.onepotonepan.wordpress.com
