There are few foods that stand up to pasta in the comfort food category. A close runner up for me is a hearty tomato soup with cheese and Peanut Butter follows very closely behind. A friend emailed me her favorite pasta recipe, I glanced through it and then did a double take. Peanut butter in pasta?! Wow, now that's what I call a powerful palette pleaser! Last Sunday was that perfect pasta weather with overcast skies and a chilled-to-the-bone kind of feeling. I made the peanut butter sauce and added some blanched vegetables just to kill some of the guilt. One thing I do know, they call it comfort food for a reason. I was so comfortable eating that dish I am sure to make it again. I know… corny!
