boyfriend and i have been trying to watch what we eat during the work week and upping our exercise routine to about 4-5 times a week. our diet during the week is pretty simple - grilled chicken, veggies and fish - trying to stay clear of starches as much as we can (bathing
come friday night we get a bit more laxed. if we feel like having pizza, we have pizza. if we feel like having pasta, we have pasta. and the other friday night, we were craving some pasta.
when i saw marissa's lemon pepper pappardelle recipe, i instantly knew i had to copy it.
what can i say, i'm a food poser.
my mom gave us the same trader joe's pappardelle a while ago and it was just sitting in our cabinet because we didn't know what to pair it with. so when i saw that marissa used the same brand of pasta to make this dish back in her home state, i squealed with joy.
finally! a great and simple recipe to use with the pasta!
if you haven't seen her recipe yet, head on over to marissa's blog and check it out. like i said earlier, this dish is sooo simple and the pappardelle is oh-so-yummy. also, boyfriend and i didn't feel all lethargic afterwards from eating it! the lemon and olive oil flavor make it light and refreshing.
marissa knows her stuff...you will not be disappointed.
