Summer is winding down and I’ve been stuck inside. You know, nothing too horrible. Certainly not enough to complain about. Much. Just a few bouts of being sick. A few moments of being so busy I can’t see straight. The occasional I’m sick and I’m busy-now that is not a pretty sight at all. I’m sorry for everyone who’s had to deal with me over the last few weeks. Can I make it up to you by sharing a super easy and super delicious little meal? It’s been pretty perfect for me, with my constant craving of comfort food.
And when I said it was easy I really did mean it. Just pick up a package of your favorite Knorr Pasta Side. I chose their Italian Creamy Garlic Shells. You’ll also need some chopped spinach and some quartered artichokes. That’s it! Make yourself a huge pitcher of Lipton’s Natural Energy. It’s perfect for summer refreshment…or if you’re like me, it’s perfect for year round enjoyment. It’s a premium black tea full of natural caffeine. The perfect pick me up when you’re working late. Again. With another case of whatever the heck is going around now… I love to use local honey in my tea. It’s perfect for when you’re not feeling well and it helps with allergies. Double the benefits in one glass.And hello hug in a bowl. If this spinach artichoke pasta can’t make you feel better, nothing can. Have you ever wanted to eat the entire bowl of spinach artichoke dip in a restaurant but then you remembered you have some manners and you resisted? This is sort of like that. Except it’s a whole dish just for you. And it’s got pasta. You can thank me later…
