Pasta Piselli, Old Fashioned Recipes. Simple Foods Makes The Home Great!

Updated on February 14, 2012

Make Mine Pasta!

I can't tell you how many times I heard that phrase growing up but it never sank in until later when I was older and times were not so hard that we ate these foods not from necessity but because our entire being longed for the wonderful simple foods from our past when money was tight and families had to conserve and be creative in order to feed a family with nourishing foods on an extremely limited budget.

Until this day, I never go on a vacation that when I return home the first thing I long for from my kitchen is Pasta Piselli. Fancy Restaurants are great for a change but on a daily basis I find myself longing for the simple foods of days gone by.

Saute 1/2 Onion In 3 Tbsps Olive Oil

Add 1/2 Cup Crushed Tomatoes

A Can Of Peas and 1 Can of Water

Some Fresh Basil and Bring To a Boil

Add 1 Cup Pasta and Cook Till Pasta Is Done

Dish It Up and Sprinkle With Parmesan Cheese

I hope you enjoy this dish as much as my family does. It is a favorite of my entire family with the exception of Scott and somehow he never got to like peas. Oh Well! It's your loss Scottie Boy!

      Thank you so much Peggy. I just glanced at your Hub but must say it has caught my attention as we lived in Ft Myers for over 20 years and know those homes well. I was in Real Estate there and worked on selling the Firestone Estate which in in the same Vicinity. It's late now but will definitely be reading your posts tomorrow. Great to connect with you Peggy!

      I know what you mean about liking good old fashioned home cooked meals. Not only are they nourishing for our bodies but also nourish our memories of times spent with our relatives who probably passed many of the recipes down to us. Thanks for sharing one of your favorite recipes and welcome to Hubpages!
