"Ho studiato l'italiano per quattro anni." Or, "Mi piace mangiare la torta," that's all I remember from Italian class. ~Which translates to, I studied Italian for four years, and I like to eat cake. I wouldn't be able to find myself a bathroom in Italy, but I could find cake. ~he hee. And if you speak Italian, please don't check my grammar. Ok, food. This is another recipe from the Pioneer Woman, I love her!! I changed it up a little bit, using spinach pasta, and throwing in some KALE! Thanks to myzenpulse.com, it's now one of my new favorite vegetables, my picky husband even said he liked it better than spinach! What?? Did he notice it's GREEN? And.... HEALTHY??? To further cancel out some calories on this creamy comfort, I served it with more cooked kale, and baked chicken, seasoned with lavender and rosemary. Mmmmm, I want seconds. Hope you enjoy my new favorite macaroni and cheese for grown-ups!

SO, I am now in love with the garlic press! As my mother and aunt can attest, I hate gadgets! But the garlic press is not a gadget, it's now a kitchen necessity. No more peeling garlic, no more mincing and mincing and quickly
