Whether its for a quick meal, an outstanding main dish for a dinner party, or to make one of our all time favorite comfort foods, you can always count on is a box of pasta. With the recent influx of gluten free choices, the pasta aisle has gotten significantly larger. Semolina, brown rice, quinoa, corn, wheat, are just a few I could think off the top of my head, and those added to the types of pasta you can choose from… oof… I often just buy whatever gluten free pasta is on sale, and stock up on a few at a time, till the next sale, of course.

Butter. And Cheese. Those to two things in healthy amounts on pasta could pretty much sum up my childhood. I think the pasta the vehicle for the butter and cheese. Seriously. I’ve talked about my Parmesan cheese obsession before, but this is really where it got real. I remember asking for more and more cheese as the meal when on, until my mom just put the whole thing in front of me, and I dished it out as needed. As time went on, I graduated from regular pasta to wheat to gluten free, and now to squash. The cheese was also upgraded from the stuff in the green tube-shaker thing, to pre-shredded, to buying hunks of good local cheese from Wisconsin. So I guess I define my adulthood by the food I eat. Sounds about right.
Improvising. Somethings things just don’t go your way, and you have to do it. To me improvising is the beauty of cooking, you can leave something out, add a dash of something in, or change the amounts of ingredients and whatever you are making can still turn out delicious. And since I tend to forget to pick up at least one item every time I go to the store, I improvise a lot.
