You want me to cook dinner?!

Well, I actually made dinner tonight.  J does about 90% of the cooking (I know, I'm a bad wife), but I found a recipe I had saved for years so I wanted to give it a try.  And it was delicious!  I'm so proud of myself.  However, it was a very simple recipe, so any novice can do it.  Trust me.  If I can do it, then so can you.  I'm taking baby steps!  So, go out and buy these ingredients and make a fabulous dinner tonight!

Hunt's Basil Pesto Pomodoro Sauce
Yield: 8 servings (1/2 cup each)


  • PAM Olive Oil No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1  cup  chopped white onion (1 cup = 1 large)
  • 2  cans (14.5 oz each) Hunt's Diced Tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/4  cup  prepared basil pesto
  • Hot cooked pasta (I used a box of bowtie pasta), chicken or fish optional (I used frozen grilled chicken strips from Costco)


Hands On: 15 minutes
Total: 15 minutes

1. Spray large skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir 5 minutes, or until tender.

2. Add tomatoes and simmer 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Stir in pesto just before serving.

3. Serve with 1 pound dry pasta (such as fusilli, spaghetti or penne), cooked according to package directions. May also be served over cooked chicken breasts or fish. 

Add some Parmesan cheese and presto!  A delicious pasta dish.  It is very yummy (even the hubs loved it), and you will have leftovers for a couple of days.
