Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know I’ve been veering from my usual dessert heavy path – but it’s for the better, you guys. Because I only eat the healthiest of “healthy” food, so sharing these recipe means you can, too. I would insert 1,000 exclamation points and a really big smiley face, but it’s 7 in the morning and last night’s dinner decided to come up at 5. So no one is smiling over here. I’m especially not smiling at the dude laying next to me in bed, who has denied me a liter of water in fear that it’ll come right back up. Probably all over him. Because apparently I’m 8 years old, with an uncontrollable gag reflex, again.
This pasta can be enjoyed warm or cold, which is one of my favorite things about it. If I’m eating it myself, I’ll halve the recipe and eat the first half warm, then eat the leftovers cold. Or I’ll double the recipe and eat it every day for a week. Because sometimes I’m a straight up carb junkie. No shame, people. No shame.
