Portobello Mushrooms

A great, quick and low cost vegetarian mid- week supper.  You could well have lots of the ingredients already in the fridge and any left overs could be roughly chopped and run through a pasta for the next day.   We often just brown some more chopped garlic and fresh chilli in olive oil, then throw in some halved cherry tomatoes and the chopped stuffed peppers. When warm add to some penne pasta and you have another meal!  If there isn’t enough left to make a full meal then add something like some steamed broccoli etc to bulk it out.   We Try to use all our left over vegetables etc during the week so not to waste them.

— Also just to have a little celebration dance this is our 100th blog post! Wow how quick thats gone… We are thinking about doing something special to celebrate this milestone.  If you have anything fun things for us let us know in the comments 🙂
