Pasta is my comfort food and there is no limit to the number of pasta dishes I’ll make. I wish I could make it every night, but in the name of excess that is definitely NOT a good idea. When I do make it I try to bulk it up with some vegetables and protein. This helps make the dish filling and nutritious, not just a giant bowl of carbohydrates.
The other night I made this easy angel hair pasta dish. I added lots of peas, stirred in cooked pancetta strips, and bound it all together in a light pink sauce. It is the perfect tasty yet light meal to enjoy on a weekday winter night. It was made even easier by the fact that the peas were Cascadian Farm Organic frozen peas served fresh from the freezer. It is so nice to have frozen product all stocked and ready to go in the winter when the local produce is not available! I warmed them up right in the sauce.
