We’re talking big bowls of back-to-your-roots, just plain good wholesome food today.

And we’re only dirtying one pot as we do it.

Yes, we’re ALL shocked.

Mostly my husband who stood over the sink in disbelief, eyes scanning the rest of the kitchen trying to figure out where the rest of the dirty pots and pans must be hiding because he knows I cook like a tornado passing through.

Nope. Not this time.

Disclaimer: all of my new year’s resolutions intentions were slaughtered in the making of this post.

Like, I watched them spiral down the drain…..

…and I didn’t even care!

I might have even kind of smiled while I did it. Waved goodbye. Cackled.

And then walked away smugly with a parfait and a spoon in each hand – double fisting as nature intended.

Fine, I admit it.

I EAT FISH.

This hearty and healthy pasta is a perfect dish for winter. It is sauced in a black lentil, carrot, and chard ragout that practically melts in your mouth.
Hearty Pasta with Black Lentil, Carrot, and Chard Ragout

Is it too early to call this THE pasta of the year?!

Because I really think it might be.

And this is not just some “guess what, we hired a new nanny!” high-induced pasta love. (As an aside, guess what! We hired a new nanny! Cue a million sighs of relief.)
