There was one time my mom and I were chatting on the phone about something she was planning to cook. I don’t honestly remember what it was, maybe a marinade, or a dry rub, or a dressing. It could even have been some kind of side dish, really I don’t remember. But that’s not the […]

Not much to say here except that this is yummy. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. I mean, how likely is it that a low-fat cheesy pasta is actually going to taste good? But, it was, in fact Adam and I were vying for the leftovers the next night!
