Pasta Please!

For the past week, the only thing that I really want is pasta.  I crave giant bowls of it.  I want to swim to the bottom of a vat of pasta and eat my way out of it.

Yes, that’s weird but when it comes to pasta, I don’t care.  Pasta Please | Life Healthfully Lived

I don’t know why, but I fought the pasta craving for a while.  It was still too hot.  I was too lazy to make something fancy.  There were plenty of leftovers in the fridge.  You can’t just live on pasta, Katie.  Basically, I made any and every excuse possible to not eat pasta even though that’s what I wanted most.

Sounds like quitter talk to me and Momma didn’t raise no quitter.

Yesterday I toyed around with a Fall version of Olive Garden’s Chicken Gnocchi soup and satisfied my pasta craving with some gnocchi.  While the recipe needs just a little bit of work, the pasta was beautiful.  I almost ate all of it, but I have SOME self-control.

Not much though.

But because the recipe isn’t quite ready and I’m sure all this pasta talk has you craving some of the stuff I put together a round up of my favorite pasta dishes on my blog.  Some are gluten-free, some don’t technically have “real” pasta, and some are dairy free.  Basically, no matter how you eat, there is a pasta dish here for you.

So eat up!
