The Perfect Pasta Start for 2012
So far, so good.. true, it's only January 4th, but tonight's pasta is healthy... whole wheat rotini and roasted cauliflower, plus some roasted beets I bought at the market last week... not to mention the stale whole wheat baguette I turned into beautiful croutons and breadcrumbs.
And ... please... a round of applause for us total carnivores who are attempting to eat meat less often. Tonight's dinner is vegetarian, although one could add some grilled shrimp or chicken to it. Totally unnecessary though. It's perfect as is.
Served with a Romaine Lettuce Salad with a spicy, garlicy vinaigrette and it's a quick, healthy end to any day.
So how does pasta fit in with your New Year's Resolutions? Hope you can join in this week's Presto Pasta Night Roundup. If you have a pasta post to share, just mention and link to Presto Pasta Night and Once Upon a Feast and send me your URL. Email to ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by Thursday night... that's tomorrow, so you still have some time to share.
