Allow me to set the scene…..
You’ve just arrived home after a busy day at school/work/what-have-you, and you suddenly remember that yes, indeed, you do need to feed yourself dinner. There is no way in hell, however, that you’re going to drag yourself to the grocery store at this point, so what do you do? Ordering delivery/take-out is an obvious solution, but you’re really trying to spend less money on eating out, and, let’s be honest, it’s hard to order take-out for one. The solution? The mystery box challenge, of course, which, at home (as opposed to on a food competition show), involves raiding your fridge and pantry and creating something edible (and hopefully delicious) out of whatever you find.
Well, that is precisely what I did this evening, and I ended up with some true yumminess…
Some sauteed zucchini, red onion, garlic, and tomatoes, seasoned with sea salt, pepper and some crushed red pepper flakes, and all tossed with goat cheese, lemon zest, fresh mint and rigatoni. Done and done.
