A Fresh Start (& Recipe Share)!

Posted on Posted in Blogging, Healthy, Recipes, updates

Wow!  It really seems like it’s been forever since I’ve blogged something…

I have been in the process of making things official and, let me tell you,

it has been so NOT easy!

What’s official, you ask?  A new website & blog, of course…trying to go totally legit!

It has been an onslaught of new information being crammed into this tiny, lil ol’ brain of mine…

ugh, what I wouldn’t give to be 20 years younger…

Anyhoo, on the plus side, I am learning how to maneuver my way through this with a measure of success.  Of course, I have the endless supply of information that my dear friend, Le Google, has so generously made available for my plundering!  Ah, how I love thee, Le Google…

Well, I have decided to switch things up a little in this new blogging journey…I want to share some of my favorite things in this blog with you.  Things that, I hope, you will enjoy.  Life today is hectic for each and every one of us…so, why not share little tid bits to make life a little easier with you.

With that in mind, how about a simple recipe that is delicious and easy to follow.  Well, that’s exactly what I have for you guys today!  It’s a little different…but in a great way 😉  It’s something that’ll break that “same old, same old” cycle of what’s for dinner, at least that’s what they say ’round here.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F and line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with non stick cooking spray. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the chicken bullion cubes.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, add all of the vegetables, oil, vinegar, garlic and all spices except for salt and pepper. Stir until well combined. Empty all of this goodness into the foil lined baking sheet and spread around so that there is a single layer and nothing is stacked. Sprinkle the salt and pepper over them. Place in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Give them a shake or gentle stir and then put back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes just until they have a nice caramelized look.
  3. While the vegetables are baking, when the water begins to boil, add the pasta and cook as directed. Of note: I like to use chicken stock or bullion cubes in my pasta water as it gives the pasta a nice flavor but you could also just boil in water seasoned with salt. Cook the pasta until done. Drain and set aside in a large serving bowl.
  4. When the vegetables are finished roasting, pour them and all the drippings from them over the pasta. Stir gently until well mixed. If it appears to be dry, drizzle a little bit of olive oil over the pasta mix. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Enjoy!
