We ended up with Italian meatballs in a tomato basil sauce with potato gnocci. Dessert was a raspberry-chipotle sauce in cream cheese and crackers.

Pastina and eggs (tiny star shaped pasta, eggs, milk, butter, fresh grated Romano & Parmesan cheeses, chopped fresh parsley, sea salt & ground peppercorns). I didnít drain all the water off because I wanted it a bit soupy.

That looks good...some fresh spinach in there would be good too.

I did a few pizzas last night and among them were a couple of spinach pizzas. Never used a thick bed of spinach before but they came out pretty good, I thought.

Thank you PF. This is an Italian dish Mom used to make for me as comfort food and a meatless friday Lent meal and thats all that goes in it.

Well, I don't want to mess up your recipe, too much...but, I'm looking at ways to include more veggies.

Fresh veggies have been a bane for a while now, so trying to incorporate them wherever I can.

I'm headed for the store, so this was timely! Thanks!

Oh I see. I always think of this as mushy food that I like to eat when I am feeling sick or need something gentle on my stomach.
