Feeding Yourself When Life Is Hard

We all go through different seasons in life, some easier than others. If all you can manage is a bag of chips in bed for dinner, that is still a win. Nutrition and a balanced diet is important but what is more important is accepting where you are in that moment and not allowing perfect to be the enemy of good enough.

Use ingredients you like and easily tailor it to your personal tastes!

From the pasta to the cheese and the seasonings, every tweak makes this dish your own. Make this your families newest staple!
