Periodically during these difficult times, we have been posting some meals we've had.  Usually there will be no recipe, what we want to post is just a reminder that simple is good, simple is comfort and during these times, we can all use a little (or a lot) of that.

In this case we had tried some new frozen vegetables they had at Kroger.  This was a line called "Mexican inspired" and was Elote Street Corn.  It's fire roasted sweet corn, cotija and Monterey jack cheeses with chili seasoning.  We decided to put it in with some pasta and a bit of butter and parsley.  

We cooked the pasta, drained and added some butter.  While that was boiling we heated the veggies in the microwave and then added them to the buttered pasta. 

That was it!

Super simple and super easy.  No meat and comes together quickly.  You can use any vegetable combo of course but this really worked out well tother.  

Serve and enjoy!


  1. That sounds (and looks) good. I'll have to see if I can find corn like that. Our Kroger moved out several years ago and I really miss it.

  2. looks interesting. I would add chicken to my pasta dish. we don't have krogers round here.

  3. Mmm, that looks really good! Since I don’t have Kroger in this town, I’ll have to see if HEB has some corn like that.

  4. I will need to go on line and see if somewhere in Tampa sells that brand of corn, we don't have Kroger her either.

  5. I would think that any frozen mixed veggies would work in this pasta dish. Probably even canned by draining the liquid.
    Just the day before you posted this I had used mixed veggies and pasta, along with a few other items and made into a soup of which we had yesterday for lunch.

  6. Sounds tasty, simple, easy and most of all soul soothing. Thanks!
