I honestly thought it tasted better the next day after after the pasta had some time to “love on itself”. This is a perfect meal for Meatless Monday, or just a simple pasta night! It takes less than 30 minutes to make so it’s an easy after work meal to prepare!

What is your favorite pasta recipe? What recipe do you make that is better the next day?

Sometimes I think we’re food twins. Creamy pasta, yes! I’m a huge carnivore too, but artichoke hearts make me happy.

I love adding spinach to pasta… such an easy way to give the meal a nutrition boost! I just made garbanzo bean pasta last night with marinara, and I added some sautéed spinach in for some greens. Also, love how you added in spices… They can make such a difference in the flavor of the dish!
