Tonight I forgot to stop at the grocery store but really wanted a homemade meal. I had to work with whatever was laying around. I knew I had some pasta in the cabinet but all I could find in the fridge was some spaghetti sauce, ricotta cheese, eggs and peas. I decided I could try to use pasta cabonara as an inspiration, using the pasta to cook the eggs, giving me some protein. I mixed the rest of it up and it was a pretty good meal! I used a bit too much ricotta, I would recommend no more than a spoonful. I always love meals that you mush everything together, so this really hit the spot.
