This is one of my favourite pastas, and it is SUPER easy to make.
I made this for dinner on Saturday.

On Saturday I had 3 egg whites for breakfast, and then a couple pieces of Thai pizza for lunch.

My snack last night was 2 peppers with dip:



I spent my Saturday running errands, watching a movie with the hubby and relaxing.

This morning the hubby made pancakes for breakfast. I dipped mine in pure maple syrup:



I had some leftover pasta for lunch, and then went to work for a while. Tomorrow the kids are back to school, and I am ready for 'em!

Dinner was at the in-laws this evening.
We had roast beef, potatoes, corn, beets and bruschetta.

Dessert was chocolate fondue with LOADS of fruit.

I have to get to bed early tonight ...
Even the teacher has trouble sleeping before the "First Day of School!"

I love mostacolli pasta...the thick shape holds sauce really well, love that. I typically like either meat sauce or vodka sauce.
