the heater in our apartment is busted right now and it is so cold i can barely think! not to mention typing with gloves on is quite the challenge…
the good news is, my oven and stove are both working…so this delicious meal helped (at least temporarily) warm me up!
if my taste buds could choose any heritage, they would definitely pick italian…i love-love-love pasta!
unfortunately, pasta is not an absolutely necessary food group, like protein. fact of the matter is, most of us get plenty of carbohydrates with out even eating starchy potatoes, pasta, or rice. so while my body craves pasta 6 days a week, i usually limit the real deal to once a week and trick it on the other days with something yummy like this…or this…or this turkey spaghetti recipe!
i get all these ingredients (except the squash) at costco, even if you don’t have a big family it’s totally worth it since we’re not working with time sensitive material here. (i mean, i cook for a family of 2!) plus their tomatoes, tomato paste and marinara is all organic!
