Dorm Cooking 101: No Measurements Pasta

Cooking in your dorm room means that you have to improvise and use what you have. Luckily, my dorm room for the summer is located within 10 minutes of three different 24 hour grocery stores. However, because this is Dorm Food 101, there are no measurements and all ingredients (except for the spaghetti) are optional.
If there are no measurements, how do you know the pasta turned out alright? Like all great chefs, taste it from time to time.

Ingredients (Makes two servings)
– Asparagus
– Broccoli
– Mushrooms
– Feta/Mozarella/Cheddar/Parmesan (you choose)
– Tomato sauce/tomato puree/tomato paste
– Onions
– Garlic
– Salt & pepper
– Cream/Milk/Yoghurt
– Pasta, cooked.

Chop the onions and garlic and fry them, add your alternative to chopped tomatoes. Add cream or alternatives. While you’re chopping/frying, steam the asparagus and broccoli. Plop the vegetables into the sauce and add your cooked pasta.

I used feta, tomato paste and cream.

You can add meat if you like, but I was too lazy to cut and clean the chicken I have in my freezer.

Preparation time: 10 minutes (excluding the time taken to steam vegetables and cook the pasta)
