Bad days happen. You never know when they'll strike. They just do. For me, today was one of those days. Nothing in particular went wrong but I was just a straight up grouch. And what helps me feel better after a long day like today? CARBS. FAT. ACIDITY. This pasta and a glass of crisp white wine is my cure, and I hope it can be yours, too!
Not only does this pasta dish satisfy my cravings, but it is also simple to make. So while I'm making it, still boo-hoo-ing about my bad day, I don't need to worry about possibly messing it up. [well...I did drop a big handfuls-worth of pasta on the floor as I was draining it. So I guess it isn't entirely bad mood proof...]
I made more than is necessary for two people (gotta feed the boyfriend, too!). But that's alright because now I've got lunch for tomorrow all set. I'm feeling my day turn around for the better at last.
