Bland pasta, why?

pagesinthesun | Jul 21, 2013 09:42 PM

I'm in a bit of a cooking slump. In a rental for the summer while we remodel our home. Maybe this has something to do with it. What's funny is we've also had quite a few terrible meals at restaurants, too.

My biggest issue this week was totally bland pasta dishes. Twice! The first was roasted cherry tomatoes, garlic, chicken, basil, olive oil. The second was more of a refrigerator pasta (whatever I had went into it). The only thing these pasta dishes had in common was using bow tie pasta (not a fan, but family likes it). I salted the pasta water well, used plenty of grated parm, fresh ingredients.

Any suggestions?
