Wow this is so cool. I love the processing and the composition. I'd love to know what you were cooking.

All the right ingredients. I didn't know you could buy Parmesan like this. It would be what I want!

Looks like a pasta dinner. Yum!

Thank you so much for all those views, comments and favs- how fun to see my dinner plans end up on the PP!

For those interested, here's what I did:

1 box whole grain rotini pasta (cooked and drained)

In a large skillet brown 1 package Italian sausage (approx. 5-6 links)- I cut them into bite sized pieces but you could cook them whole if you prefer. Cook and drain fat.

Return the sausage to the pan and add 1 jar (32oz) spaghetti sauce (I use a natural one that has no sugar added), 1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes (with juice) and 1/2 cup red cooking wine (optional and not pictured above). Bring to a mild boil, then add in 1/4 to 1/2 shredded Parmesan cheese. Cook until cheese melts. Add in pasta and stir until coated. Heat the entire mixture until the pasta is hot.

Top with shredded Mozzarella cheese when serving (opt.)

Goes nicely with a tossed-green salad. Enjoy!

@randystreat Thank you Kathy! The recipe is above. You could make it, divide it up in containers and freeze it for busy days when you don't feel like cooking.

@pyrrhula Thank you Ferry!

Sounds delish!

Great composition and capture.

The subject is interesting, and your color and composition work well together. I wonder if you got higher over the whole layout you could have gotten completely flat?

Thank you Katy, Haskar and Junko!

@jyokota It's difficult for me to climb on chairs to do that. I used my point and shoot for the other flat lays I did for this challenge but for this one I used my T3i and stood over the items on the floor. But you are right, if I'd gotten on a chair it would have been completely flat.
