I’m all about eating healthy and using veggie noodles and bean based pastas and light sauces. But sometimes you just gotta have some comfort food old school style! Of course with whole wheat pasta and some veggies thrown in for good measure 🙂 (And if you still want a lighter version of this, check out my zoodle pasta primavera which has all the same veggies but with zucchini noodles and a light garlic white wine sauce).
K, now back to the hearty cheesiness! We are currently smack dab in the middle of Ohio winter, with 3 inches of snow that came Saturday and about 2 more overnight last night. I’m writing this at 6am but there’s no school today and I can already feel that I’m going to want to stay inside in comfy clothes and clean out the mess that is our basement after Christmas. Instead, I am taking a group of kids bowling, because that’s always a smart thing to do for your sanity, right?!
But tonight there will be this! Warm and creamy and filling with no apologies. Just looking at this picture makes me want to grab a big fork.
