Pasta with Oven Roasted Onion and Swiss Chard
I got the idea to make a "fancy dinner" for DR since I've been slacking in the kitchen. So I got out my copy of The Modern Vegetarian Kitchen (mostly vegan - a fantastic book!) and made pasta with oven roasted onion and swiss chard. For interest, I added some carrots that I also roasted in the oven. It was really tasty! What I love about this cookbook is that all the recipes (well, most) are vegan, including the baked goods, and they are "fancy" in a "I can bust this out in an hour for dinner with minimal effort" kind of way.
Peaking out in the corner is a loaf of fresh bread I made. I just I was feeling quite adventurous.
