Mongolian Beef Noodle Bowl @ Bento Red – Gainesville, Fl

May 13, 2010

For lunch I had the Mongolian beef noodle @ Bento Red. I don’t know if it’s a real dish or not because this is a fusion restaurant.. It was basically Mongolian beef on top of plain thick noodles and I suppose it’s meant to be all stirred up because that’s what I did? At first I was confused at how the noodles looked like spaghetti to me. Anyhow it satisfied my super bad craving for noodles that I had today! Even if it was a bit too oily.

Amber’s Made Up Pasta.. in 4 easy steps!

May 3, 2010

After work, my roommate Amber (she wanted her name on here because she’s so vain) decided to cook dinner for us. It was spaghetti noodles with a buncha vegetables (spinach, onions, peppers, mushrooms) and meat and wine/butter/olive oil/garlic/basically whatever we could find. She wanted me to document the entire thing and give her credit for cooking it. Haha. WELL! HERE YA GO!

Step 1: Cut up the peppers and onions however you like.

Step 2: Drain the noodles that you’ve been boiling in water, butter*, oil, and salt. Keep some of the liquid.

Step 3: Throw whatever you can find (the peppers and onions you cut earlier, spinach, meatballs, chicken, some of the pasta boil liquid, wine, olive oil, mushrooms, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, butter*) into a pan. Stir in the pasta and proceed to step 4..

Step 4: VOILA! Top it off with grated Parmesan and you’re done!
