Bill was in the mood for pasta with red sauce.  I used Trader Joe’s High Fiber Penne pasta (a new family favorite).  The last time I prepared this, Jackson declared it was his new favorite penne pasta.  It is made with traditional durum wheat semolina but also includes oat fiber and provides 25% of your daily fiber needs.

I sauteed organic baby bella mushrooms and onions with a touch of olive oil and water.  I used this on Bill’s pasta with Trader Joe’s Vodka sauce (not sure if this is truly vegan, but it was what I had on hand).  For me, I had the mushrooms over a large arugula salad and a sprinkling of balsamic vinegar (this is another one of our favorite dinners, and I was more in the mood for this than pasta with red sauce tonight.
