One of Mr. Peach’s favorite meals is a really delightful pasta salad with penne, avocado, fresh mozzarella, and tomatoes that his mom made growing up. We make it at least a few times a year, usually in the summer, and it’s always a big hit.
Maybe I was feeling inspired by the spring-like weather we’ve been having lately. Or maybe it’s because I can never look a log of fresh mozzarella in the face without making immediate plans to eat it. Whatever the case, this past week I accidentally (but really on purpose) bought too many avocados, tomatoes, and mozzarella — almost everything you need to make that pasta salad. And even though I have a big box of penne hanging out in my cupboard right now, I’m having a bit of a love/hate relationship with pasta at the moment.
I love everything about pasta except that I’m always hungry again about 10 seconds after I eat it.
Carbs, am I right?
