In keeping with my promise to myself on the 101 Things list, here’s your flavor-of-the-week vegetarian (but not vegan) recipe:
adapted slightly from The Gradual Vegetarian by Lisa Tracy
Half a bag of egg noodles
Two large tomatoes, cut into chunks
Half a cup of frozen chopped onions (fresh is fine; I just happened to have frozen on hand)
Two cloves of garlic, chopped
2 tbsp. plain yogurt
Start the noodles. Saute the onion in butter until it’s clear. Add tomatoes, garlic, and basil and cook until tomatoes disintegrate and turn into a chunky sauce. The noodles should be just about ready by the time the sauce is done. Drain cooked noodles and toss them with the yogurt. Top with tomato mixture and grated cheese. Serves 2.
