Have you ever thrown leftoverspaghetti into a frittata the next morning? If you haven’t, you’re missing out! My first year out of college, I used to order spaghetti from this great restaurant in Hoboken. The portions were always ginormous, so I’d save some in the fridge. Unfortunately, unlike Asian noodles, leftover spaghetti isn’t very appetizing. Pasta should be piping hot, creamy and the smell of the sauce should creep out of the bowl and into your nostrils. But what to do with all this leftover pasta? Throw it in a frittata!
My favorite type of frittata is spinach and goat cheese. There’s something about the way goat cheese complements cooked eggs – I just can’t get enough. After starting this blog, I couldn’t wait to make my frittatas with zucchini pasta. The zucchini noodles add a great crunch to this (like al dente pasta – no more squishy leftovers). Just a different way to get your daily dose of veggies…
My friend Katie recently launched a fashion blog devoted to styling women with different body types, hence the name of her site: PearShapedGirl.com. While I can whip up a mean bolognese in the kitch, I can’t find my way out of a Gap. Simply, I feel more comfortable holding a spatula than a clutch and sexier in an apron than stilettos. Luckily, Katie wanted to style me in exchange for a recipe for her blog – what a deal!
While everything I make on this blog is from fresh and healthy ingredients, I understand that sometimes a pasta or pasta salad might be too much when you’re in the mood for something super light. This is what I love about the spiralizer – it’s completely versatile! I like salads, but now that I’ve become Inspiralized, I’ve learned to be more creative with my ingredients and create salads that use the same ingredients but offer more textures, shapes and therefore flavors (yes, foods taste different depending on how they’re cut or not cut.)
I don’t know about youall, but I definitely took advantage of the July 4th holiday and perhaps had a bit too much to eat and drink and not enough treadmill time. No worries – Skinny Sunday is here!
Tonight’s recipe contains chunks of yummy salmon. Salmon is infamous for its richness in omega-3 fatty acids which are vital to the health of our entire bodies. These fatty acids help lower cholesterol and support brain functions such as memory. I could go on about the powers of salmon as a heart-healthy fish, but instead – let’s get to the recipe!
Welcome to Skinny Sundays! Let’s be honest with ourselves… the weekends usually get the best of us. One too many cocktails, some late night “snacks” after those cocktails, your “cheat day,” eating out at restaurants, not making time for exercise…. we’ve all been there (and hey, it’s fun!). Worry no more! On Skinny Sundays, I’ll be posting a healthy, low-calorie pasta dish to set you on the right path for the week. No more eating lettuce to detox… we’re Inspiralized, remember? That means a big ole’ bowl of guiltless pasta!
