I was on the way home when the hunger hit. It was 3 oclock and I realized that all I ate was a protein bar. This wasn’t intentional at all. I usually eat every few hours. After a day of running around like a crazy woman, the hunger devoured me and I could eat anything in sight. I imagined what I would eat all the way home.
We just got back from our trip and there is no food in the house. I am spoiled, I usually only use fresh herbs when I cook. I searched the fridge and there was not a sprig in sight. I rummaged through the pantry. I eyeballed some canned goods that I bought a year ago before I had learned to cook. This was going to be a mish mash dinner with everything I could find. I used cream corn instead of cream to add a thickness to the sauce.

Empty your House Pasta

Whole Wheat Pasta
3 cloves of garlic
1 gigantic onion
2 small cans of diced tomatoes
1 small can of creamed corn
Parmigiano Reggiano

1. Cook the pasta according to directions.
2. Saute the onions and garlic.
Add tomatoes, corn, tuna and oregano. Simmer for a few minutes.
3. When pasta is al dente, reserve some of the cooking liquid.
4. Add sauce and a bit of starchy cooking water to pasta.
5. Top with parmigiano Reggiano.

I have to say that this is not the most incredible pasta that I have ever had but it was just perfect for a day when I don’t have time to cook but would like to enjoy
some nice healthy comfort food.
Note: The pasta in the picture is before I added the cheese

UPDATE: My fiance got home and tried the pasta, he loved it!
