Dh's favorite pasta dish - red clam sauce - takes 10 minutes

This is not a dish I would usually like because of all the canned items ... it is really tasty, easy, and cheap.

Couple tablespoons olive oil, 2 cloves chopped garlic.
2 can chopped clams, 1 drained, one not
Frozen tiny shrimp, or really any other seafood you have.
2 can diced tomatoes - 1 drained, on not
parm cheese
oregano
black pepper
red pepper flakes
2 TBSP tomato paste ( I cheat and use a splat of ketchup )
Basil

Sautee up garlic in olive oil ( chopped onion goes well here if you like ) , add all other ingredients ( spices etc. are to taste ) simmer about 15 minutes.
We like to serve with some frozen peas added in.

Its obviously a pantry type dish - but we even serve it company with fresh pasta and it is always a hit... t odress it up - throw in some olives , a piece of fresh tuna or  even a few steamed clams in the shells.

Couscous cooked with tomato paste in the water (good, but gluier than usual) and chickpeas cooked with onion, garlic and tomato. We were out all day (vegetable fajitas for two at a restaurant for lunch), so I wanted something quick and easy. This was a pleasant surprise.

Homemade chicken pie.  Every so often, I cook off 2 chickens, pick them and make stock.  So chicken pie is a snap with tha already done.

Recipe?

Last night was pizza and root beer floats. Tonight will be either spaghetti or scrambled eggs.
If wisdomís ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Beef stir fry. The kind of "eyeball and sniff" kind. It's never the same thing twice.

I had an afternoon tea for my book club and now I'm full of finger sandwiches, scones and sweet bread. The only real substitution is that everybody preferred coffee which I served with cream instead of milk, which was a real treat.

Beans and greens soup with ham, croque monsieur sandwiches, and mystery dessert if I have the energy.

Leftover slow-cooked brisket and homemade BBQ sauce with pickles on white bread.  Coleslaw on the side. 

Them's good eats.  *burp*  ;D
