Comfort Food RV Style

Last week one of my favorite bloggers, Kevin Lee Jacobs of “a garden for house” posted a new twist on one of my favorite comfort foods.

First the way I was taught by Jeanie my adopted mom.

1 small Onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, chopped

1 can of green peas, undrained.

1 lb elbow macaroni

Parmesan cheese

Place the onion, garlic in a small saucepan with a little olive oil, start sauteing over medium heat add the can of peas and liquid cover and reduce heat to low and let simmer while you boil the macaroni to al dente.

Drain and add the pea mixture and sprinkle with parmesian to taste.

My RV way.

1/2 onion slice thin.

chopped garlic to taste.

olive oil

1/2 cup fresh or frozen green peas.

1 cup medium pasta shells.

Parmesan cheese.

sea salt and fresh ground pepper.

Saute the onion in olive oil in a small saucepan till soft, add the garlic and peas and cover and turn to low.

Boil the pasta till al dente, my rv way uses less water, 3 cups in a 3-4 quart saucepan. You can salt the pasta water, I don’t to cut down on my salt intake, it’s my addiction instead of sweets.

The peas and the pasta should take the same amount of time.

Drain the pasta and save some of the water to sauce up the dish. Mix it all together add salt and pepper to taste and top with cheese.

The picture below is with another pasta, I prefer shells because they trap the peas, but your favorite will work just as well in the recipe.

Now head over Kevin’s site and try his great recipe and while you are there sign up for his newsletter and videos he is a great cook and teacher.

One last word on cooking in an RV. With a little prep work you can cook anything in an rv kitchen that you can cook at home.
