I don’t like parsley. I always want to add it as a garnish but this is the last time because it is gross. Parsley adds a beautiful green touch to dishes but I really don’t care for it. I guess it is kind of like the fact people either love or hate cilantro. On the other hand, I am very pro-cilantro. There is no middle ground. Despite the parsely, which my family actually liked in the dish, which is why I kept it, I am obsessed with this Spicy Sausage Pasta! This is the perfect 30-minute weeknight dinner! With only a few simple ingredients that you probably have most on hand, this Spicy Sausage Pasta is a flavorful and easy gluten-free meal. Don’t have a spiralizer? You can make sweet potato noodles with a julienne peeler or by making thin strips with a vegetable peeler!
We’ve been having a freakishly warm winter in Oklahoma! It was almost 80 this past weekend. I normally love summer and can’t wait for its arrival, but in Oklahoma the warm weather means terrible seasonal allergies. I had almost no allergies until I moved to Oklahoma, and it was definitely something I didn’t miss when I lived in California. Oh well, I guess I should just be glad it only snowed a handful of times! I am very excited to already bust out my spring dresses and to ditch all my heavy sweaters and scarves. I am also very excited for the return of farmer’s markets! There are a couple of year-round farmer’s markets in Oklahoma, but there is a signification decrease in supply during the winter. I can’t wait to hit the stands Saturday morning and check out all the local produce! I really love picking up local honey and eggs from the farmers. I like being able to know where my ingredients are coming from and also that I get to help support the local community!
