I made cavetini last night for dinner. I have started prepping dinner early in the day, when I have more energy, so all I have to do is do the actual cooking come dinner time. It has been working beautifully! I got the cavetini all ready to go and spent the afternoon with my mom and the kids. It wasn't until around 3 PM that I realized I had made a mistake: I forgot to cook the pasta! I put it in raw. Ooops! I figured I could cook the pasta right in the casserole (like lasagna). It did work, but the pasta just wasn't very good. We managed to eat it for dinner, but neither one of us wants it for leftovers, which says a lot because my husband will pretty much eat anything. So in the trash it went.

It doesn't happen often, but I really hate throwing away all that food! I've learned to roll with it and accept that sometimes there are failures in the kitchen. Thankfully it was just pasta and not a nice roast!
