Post-Vacation Redemption

I went on a little 3-day vacation to Florida to visit my dear friend, Amaya. She and I always bonded over our LOVE for dessert, so the trip, of course, involved A LOT of sweets. In fact, I think we ate more sweets than actual meals. But that's what vacation is for, right? That's why when you get back from vacation, you have to eat some healthy foods to redeem yourself... and to get rid of that heavy blobby feeling you start to get after Cheetos for lunch and ice cream for breakfast.

I had tucked this recipe away in my "to-make" folder a few weeks ago and it seemed like the perfect time to make it. It's from Cooking Light, so it's gotta be healthy, it simple, quick, etc. Unfortunately, it just wasn't that good. It needed something. Like more salt. Or BACON. Add bacon to anything and I will LOVE it.

Oh, yeah. I couldn't find pappardelle at the grocery store, so I just used linguine.

Thank goodness I had some goat cheese and chive biscuits to go with the pasta...
