IT WAS 47 DEGREES OUTSIDE LAST NIGHT. And also when I woke up this morning. Beck didn’t know what to do; we (I) teach yoga early on Tuesdays at the Y so we were out the door at 7:30 when it was definitely still chilly outside, and she was huddled in my armpit like she was going to die. It was so stinking cute, and it occurred to me that she doesn’t REMEMBER it getting cold ever because duh she’s not even two. So this is like her first winter even though it is her third winter. I’m quite excited for her, she’s super into jackets and zippers and buttons at the moment.
So, with this finally-cool first day of seasonally appropriate weather, you can imagine how especially psyched out of my mind (name that movie!) I was to hear on the radio this morning that it is National Pasta Day! And, yes, that is overshadowed by the fact that it is National Pasta MONTH, and also that it is about 18 other things this month, and that every day seems to have some kind of food-related recognition which honestly is just taking inclusion to a crazy level. But, I really love pasta and I adore pasta when it is cooler outside, so we’re going with it.
If I was any good at planning ahead I’d have a new pasta recipe for you but HAHAHAHA yeah right. I DO, however, have a new eggplant pasta with bacon + mascarpone cheese in the works so maybe we’ll get to that this month, during National Pasta Month. Of course.
In the meantime, though, here are some of my really really really favorite pasta recipes. Some seasonal, some perfect for all-year, and one or two that don’t involve pasta for the low-carb lovers in your life. Something for everyone!
