Remember Your Roots

Remember Your Roots

I'm one of those people that orders the same thing EVERY time at my favorite restaurants. In this case, the Roots, Beans and Greens and Boulder's Tangerine is my go-to. This home version includes asparagus instead of greens for when it is in season and plentiful. Guaranteed to support your groundedness!

Pasta e Fagioli

In all my years of making pasta, I've never made a proper Pasta e Fagioli (pasta and beans) because canned cannellini beans are already mushy so adding them to a soup only works when you're going for creamy and not toothsome beans. So I finally bought some proper dried beans and this may be one of the most delicious things I've ever made! WORTH IT.
