Pasta with Peas

Rumor has it that as soon as Monday, I may be able to put my parka jacket in the closet for some much needed rest. I celebrated this potential event by bringing some Spring into my kitchen. I thought maybe if I cook and dress like it’s above 40 degrees, then maybe it will start warming [...]

eggplant rolantini with pasta
