#71 - Delicious Pasta bento

I have an extra long day at school today from 10AM to 6PM so I have an extra packed bento with me to last me through the day. I could almost say I have 2 main dishes in here. I am planning to eat one half at lunch time and save some for late afternoon so it can last me till dinnertime.

In this bento there is some delicious pasta that the BF made for dinner last week. It has spinach, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, cream cheese and Italian herbs. It is a good thing I always stash the leftovers in the freezer because this is such a great bento dish :) In the other tier are risotto balls. I made another batch on Tuesday since I found them such a success in BF's bento last week and I wanted to enjoy them too. These balls are made from a different risotto recipe that we tried last Monday. This risotto has peas, spring onions, white beans, chives, parsley and mascarpone. So it might not look like it, but this bento is packed with veggies. There are some frozen cherries in the cup. This is my first time buying frozen fruits, so I hope they will be good. Lastly 2 cute panda picks :)
