Go-To Summer Pasta

Thursday, July 24, 2014


What’s your go-to dish when you feel blah?

In our house there is an unspoken rule that whenever one of us feels down, tired or simply low on energy, we make pasta for dinner to cheer ourselves up. I’m positive that pasta has no energy boosting qualities, but its comforting texture makes all the difference every time. Magically it makes everything seem so much better, doesn’t it? We made Phillys’ summer corn, tomatoes and garlic pasta twice this week, and it hasn't let us down. One of the easiest dishes out there, but so full of flavour! It's great for those evenings when the sun already set and the light evening breeze is finally making the air a bit more bearable. Just add a glass of wine and you got yourself an evening to remember - the simple things in life! xo

P.S: Full recipe here.
P.P.S: Our other favourite: one-pan + 10 minutes!

For me it's a plate of ricotta pancakes with bacon and syrup but I might just change my mind after seeing this post. Jill

Our go-to comfort food of late has been polenta. So creamy and comforting. This sounds amazing. I LOVE oven dried tomatoes, so zesty and a good way to perk up an otherwise bland tomato. xo, Katie
