Today is the first day of Spring and I am so excited to see the mini crocuses in bloom and daffodils sprouting! And just like the changing rhythms of the seasons, I love embracing the new seasonal eats coming our way. However, just because spring has sprung does not mean I’ll be turning my back on some good comfort food just yet. When I’ve had quite the day, and or days, let’s be real here, I just love nothing more than sitting down with a good cozy dish (and maybe the occasional splurge of a glass of wine) to warm the heart and melt away the day.
I’ve been making some version of this dish now for a good seven or so years, and I think I’ve finally nailed down the perfect mix of comfort and brightness to bring you this delicious and super easy weeknight meal. I happen to absolutely love Trader Joe’s Gigli Artisan pasta for this dish but don’t feel married to this type of pasta if you can’t find access to it. Simply substitute with your favorite noodle or I may also recommend fettuccine or linguine. Either way, it’s all about the sauce here so make sure to find a decent dry white to enhance the flavors of this dish. I also highly recommend hunting down Pecorino instead of resorting to Parmesan, which adds to the brightness in this dish. Serve it family style and maybe even sneak in a glass of that tasty white wine you picked up for this recipe!
