Happy Linguine Day!

15 Sep

Hey Holiday Celebrators!  Like runswithatoms, I apologize for us not being so celebratory lately.  I was actually away for a few days and didn’t have easy computer access.  So, I am terribly sorry for the holiday I took from holidays.  Also, I’m going to try to write up the posts the night before the holiday so I can actually post them earlier on the actual day so you can have time to freakin celebrate!  That being said, let’s get back into the swing of things and observe Linguine Day!

The 50% Italian in me has a weakness for anything with alfredo, but I learned a pretty tasty, healthy substitute that I tried and enjoyed!  The Oprah Show had featured a “heart healthy” alfredo sauce using Cannellini and let me tell you, it rocked!  I admit, I didn’t use soy milk, dried tomatoes (bleh), or sheep cheese b/c I just didn’t have those on hand/ don’t like some of those ingredients.  Make sure you puree the beans really well otherwise they might be a little gritty.

Another yummy-sounding yet not yet neuronano-approved recipe for healthy alfredo is here.  Here’s a tip:  if your sauce ever seems runny, just add flour or cornstarch to it.  If it’s too thick, add milk.

linguine with seafood! from wiki.

If you don’t feel like cooking and actually eat at the Olive Garden *upturns nose* then get the Linguine alla Marinara which is actually not terrible for you and I can’t see how they could muck it up, but who knows?!  You can usually find coupons for Olive Garden in the Sunday paper so I guess I approve of that.

So who’s afraid of carbs?  Not me!  Celebrate Linguine Day early and often!

      It’s a real holiday as far as I know. If not, I don’t mind celebrating anyway, haha! Welcome to our blog, fellow Michigan-er :o)
