These days I'm having a particularly good time paying attention to what my friends and family are eating and posting about on Facebook. Why? Because I can't eat right. Well, not much or much of anything yummy. I'm on the plain, boring non-functing gall bladder diet, looking forward to surgery next Tuesday. After month of intermittent pain and vomitting followed by the last few weeks of non-stop vomitting and pain, I'm ready for them to get this little troublemaker out of my body!
So in the meantime, until I can eat/cook again, I'll be blogging lots of goodies my friends are eating. This pasta dish comes from Janna, who made it for her family this week and said they'all liked it so much it's going to be a permanent fixture in her recipe box.
Looks delicious! Can't wait to be able to make it myself. Thanks for sharing, Janna!.
