I feel like Sandra Lee

I'm supposed to be making truffles tonight - or rather, a friend is coming over to make truffles in my kosher kitchen.

So. Dinner has to be something easy and not take up stove top space.

Tomato, Cheese and Pasta casserole -

One half bag bowtie noodles
1 jar salt-free vegetarian pasta sauce
1 bag shredded light mozzarella
balsamic vinegar.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Dump uncooked noodles into casserole dish. Dump sauce over noodles. Add a shot of balsamic vinegar (to take away that storebought taste). Add most of the bag of cheese. Toss until mixed. Add 1/4 cup water. Top with remaining cheese.

Place in oven. Let back until noodles are soft.

What a fate!

I have a refrigerator filled with several trays and bowls of ganache. Plain, blackberry, Calvados, Sabra (orange-chocolate) and Coffee.

The coffee, especially, is to die for. (I don't like liqueurs, but Starbucks coffee liqueur is delicious.)

Tomorrow, they will become truffles.
