Pasta is one of those things that you feel you have to completely give up when you’re losing weight, but you don’t have to. The carby deliciousness of a bowl of pasta and the feeling of slurping spaghetti that’s reminiscent of childhood makes you dread having to cut it out or make the switch to spiralized pasta.
I love making this pasta recipe that I’m about to share with you because it’s one of the meals that my toddler, Riley, will happily eat. He screams Continue reading “Two Variations of My Best Toddler Friendly Pasta (Meatballs and No Meatballs)”
I’m a fan of ethnic food. Give me a Nigerian, Thai, or Indian dish any day and you’ll be in my good book for the rest of your life.
