Last night was simply heavenly – it was the first time in a long time that I really have had a chance to breathe.
So, I curled up in my bed with a nice bowl of comfort pasta. Was not feeling like spaghetti sauce – or even pesto.
Sometimes you just want something light and comforting. And, this simple recipe hit the spot. There is nothing like curling up in bed, in a sweater, reading a book – with lit scented candles.
You will need: gluten free corn pasta, ½ cup parmesan, 7 grape tomatoes, ½ tbsp. garlic powder, 2 tbsp. olive oil and pinch of crushed red pepper.
Boil water in a pot (think you know how to make pasta) and set your corn gluten free noodles in there – when boiling. I like corn pasta. It tastes a lot better to me than rice pasta. Less of a gooey mess after you strain them as well! Trader Joe’s has awesome options for corn pasta that will not break the bank!
After the noodles are tender and done, strain and run cool water over the noodles. Pour the noodles back into the warm pot on the stove.
Dump in the parmesan cheese and olive oil. Stir up this beautiful goodness.
Add in the spices. Then slice the grape tomatoes in half (add those in last). I like to turn the stove top back on to heat the cheese and get the flavors to run together.
Now, grab a glass of wine and a nice book – you are ready for a nice, girly Friday night.
May I suggest the book, ‘A Million Little Ways’ by Emily P. Freeman. I am thoroughly enjoying this beautifully written book.
Top the night off with the 1997 flick Anastasia. I totally did that. Embrace your womanhood. It just makes life better.
