Okay, at the risk of getting kicked off the boards for low-brow food, I wanted to share a fun, easy way to regress to childhood. I was at Trader Joe's in Cambridge, MA a couple of weeks ago, and of course the first thing I always do is hit the food demo. I grabbed the hot pasta sample, and with the first bite was immediately became a hungry five-year old at lunchtime.

They had cooked up a bag of their new little circle pasta, analetti, and mixed it with a carton of their creamy organic tomato soup (in the shelf-stable septic packaging) that had been heated. They sprinkled in some of their shaker top cheese (parmesan? I forgot to check) and let it simmer for a while, stirring often since it sticks easily. Voila! Spaghettios without the metallic taste or mush. My adult sons think it is fun comfort food.
