What’s Cooking? Sunday, Part 2

Every Sunday, I take time to prepare 1-2 dishes to last me throughout the week.  It’s a great strategy for busy people who still want to eat nutritious meals.  Here’s what I’m cooking today.

1. Capellini with Shrimp and Creamy Tomato Sauce

This top rated recipe from Epicurious is delicious.  I used evaporated skim milk mixed with a little cornstarch in place of the heavy cream.  Regular, low-fat milk probably would have worked too.  I also threw in 2 cups of baby spinach to add some extra color and emulate the seafood pasta at my favorite Sacramento Italian restaurant, Lucca.image

2. Cream of Asparagus Soup

Another gem from Epicurious.  For this one I did use 1% milk mixed with a little cornstarch in place of the heavy cream.  Next time, I plan to throw in a little garlic for some extra flavor.  Yum!
