Do you remember filling out questionnaires in elementary school that asked about your favorite color, hobby, and food? You might still have a few brightly colored pieces of paper tucked away somewhere with your crooked, misspelled handwriting scrawled across it. 

Well, my answer to the food question growing up was usually ribs--smoked barbecue ribs to be specific. Honest to goodness, it's one of my all-time favorite foods. 

Yet, at some point in my teenage years, I became self-conscious of my love for ribs. I thought, shouldn't my favorite food be something more sophisticated? Like a perfectly cooked steak or freshly steamed shellfish?

Creamy Pesto Penne Pasta with Tomatoes & Asparagus

A quick and easy penne pasta recipe with tomatoes, asparagus, onion, and a creamy pesto sauce made with coconut milk. A simple vegetarian meal that's packed full of flavor!

Creamy Pesto Penne Pasta with Tomatoes & Asparagus

Do you have a love affair with pasta, but totally hate the carb coma afterward? I was the same way until I discovered einkorn wheat noodles! I used to fix huge bowls of saucy spaghetti back in the day with all the fixings (wine, salad, garlic bread) and always planned on changing into my pajama pants soon after the meal in order to get comfy. I always felt suuuuuuper full and tired from all that pasta. I'm sure you can relate!

Well, this all changed when I picked up a box of einkorn spaghetti and gave it a try one night. Like my typical self, I ate a ginormous helping expecting to feel sleepy immediately. Instead, I felt normal. Full, but not overly full. No need to unbutton my pants or curl up in a ball. I even went back for a second helping just to prove myself wrong. That made me a bit more full, but still no carb coma.

I was flabbergasted.
