What's for supper? How could we be out of pasta?

Well, we weren't entirely out of pasta. We did have elbow macaroni and a few lasagna noodles. I have been allowing certain stockpiled things to get way down there before buying more, and pasta was one of them.

So tonight's dinner was Chicken with Lasagna Noodles. And Peas, and Toaster-Oven Brownies.

Recipe: Brown some cut-up boneless chicken breasts in a large skillet. Add thinned pasta sauce, bring to a boil, and add broken-up lasagna noodles. Let simmer until almost done, stirring occasionally, then add some cheese (your choice what kind). You can turn it off a few minutes before serving, to let it all come together

That's all!

Brilliant about the pasta.

Are toaster-oven brownies just regular brownies baked in a toaster oven? I assume a smallish batch?

Our toaster oven can hold a nine-inch square pan, so I bake our regular brownie recipe without any special adustments. I just mentioned the toaster oven because the weather's been too hot here to use the big oven.
