Earlier today, I pleaded with M not to include bacon in our pasta dinner. “Please don’t torture me by eating bacon in my presence today. It would crush my morals. I would do bad things for bacon right now.”
This statement is still halfheartedly true. What the hell am I trying to do here? Simply, eat more vegetables.
And surprisingly, I found plenty of recipes sans meat in my Ooh-that-looks-good-but-I-don’t-want-to-make-it-today file. So, thank you to Spinach and Cheddar Souffle and pesto pasta for the motivation to stick it out another day.
Avocado & Basil Pesto- Green never tasted so good.
Garlicky. With a hint of basil.
Makes me dash back to the kitchen for
a spoon to get all up in the bowl of remaining
sauce when the pasta’s gone.
