Out shopping in an upscale grocery store I came across Near East Pasta – which I had seen before but had never tried. Consider it a fancier version of say Knorr/Lipton side dishes. I picked up the Roasted Garlic and Olive Oil flavor to try out.
Easy to prep, this meal only needs water for boiling the pasta and a packet of olive oil and your meal is ready! It has a great taste and takes to other things being added. A liberal dose of Parmesan cheese and a can of oil packed tuna, maybe cook some freeze dried vegetables with the pasta as well, and you have a meal for two in 10 minutes that is very tasty!
