My love for cooking waxes and wanes. This last lull in cooking love has lasted WAY longer than I’m going to admit. I’ve had a few inklings of urges over the last month, but last night it hit with full force. One bite of this One Pot Wonder Tomato Basil Pasta Recipe and I’m in love with cooking all over again. Maybe :) It could be that I just like cooking when it means pulling out my dutch oven. Who knows?
I modified the recipe a little by using fresh tomatoes and adding in zucchini and red pepper. This is a versatile dish that can handle many modifications — I’m pretty excited about it. Even better was the fact that all the boys liked it. Like a lot. So basically I’m Julia Child now.
It’s getting cool enough that one pot meals seem right, but we can still eat outside at the picnic table — also known as the best time of year.
