You know when you were a kid and you’d make “soup” in the backyard, which basically consisted of grass and weeds and shit in a bucket of water? You were just throwing everything in there, whatever you wanted. And you were probably hanging out with your imaginary friend Shadow because I guess your real friends were busy again (because you did have friends, for the record). This pasta is sort of like that soup. Made with fresh tomatoes, the homemade sauce will happily welcome your favorite veggies or meat. You can throw whatever you want in there… and hopefully have more than a Shadow to eat it with.
God bless The Beagle Pub. It was the very first pub I went to on my 19th birthday in Victoria, where I had lunch with three policemen. I had been arrested earlier that morning for farting on a baby, but the charges were later dropped when the baby correctly identified Kristen Wiig next to me in a lineup.
I’m the odd one out. I hate McDonald’s burgers, I don’t like their wraps, and their fries are squishy. I buy McDonald’s maybe once a year. But if their breakfast lasted all day, I would be the scraggly-haired woman in the corner table, slowly palming McGriddle after McGriddle into my mouth and making scarves out of the discarded wrappers. I love it.
So If you also like to sleep in and can’t make the 11AM McCutoff, or were banned from McDonald’s for making too many scarves, try making these yourself. It’s a really easy recipe without the mystery ingredients, and tastes pretty damn close to the real thing. Bonus: you don’t have to leave the house.
