Sometimes, I just need a little color in my life. Maybe it’s the intense schedule I’ve managed to arrange. Maybe it was the rainy days I had to commute in. Maybe it’s the hours I’ve spent staring at a computer. Whatever the reason, I needed a little color in my life at the end of the week.
I know, this is not what you think about when you think of adding color to your life. But the truth is, bright colors make me happy. It’s why my raincoat is bright orange. It cheers me up. And if those colors come (naturally) from my food, so be it.
I needed something bright and colorful and quick and simple. So I whipped up this pasta dish with some things I already had on hand. And I was happy. I had color in my life again, and good food in my tummy. And all I have to say to the coming week is this: Bring it.
