Healthy Fridge Pasta Recipe

by katerina on May 30, 2008


I have just discovered KathEats, a fabulous blog which has inspired me to get off my butt and move. I went to the gym yesterday and 2 hours of walking today. In that same theme I threw together this healthy pasta for Presto Pasta with everything which was in my fridge. I have a nice clean slate to start the weekend with. I think since I have the house to myself this weekend (J is away) I may even try and plan the dinners for next week. I love a good solid grocery shop. I also need to eat more vegetarian meals I managed it twice this week not bad at all. Back to Lost.
