Tacos and anything burrito related will ALWAYS be my favorite go-to-meal.  But I like to put a spin on things.  Mexican Stuffed Peppers are a combination that I dreamed up to make myself feel better about eating tacos!  They are DELICIOUS and get this.. good for you!  I love peppers in general, so this dish was basically made for me.  I opted to use Green, but you can use any color pepper you desire!  Red, Orange, Yellow, it all works the same!

Serving Up: Lentil Soup!

I personally LOVE soup.  It doesn’t have to be cold out for me to want it, but when it is? I am ALL UP ON IT.  I grew up loving certain soups, and lentil is one of my absolute tops!  I have literally, never made it myself though!  So, I gave it a go.  I wasn’t even sure I was going to end up sharing this one, because it obviously could have come out awful! But alas, it did not! This lentil soup was thick, chock full of veggies, and so good!  I loved it!  The recipe is totally a keeper! So, I hope you LOVE this lentil soup, too!

Is there anything better than a good pasta dish? In my head, definitely not.  But add in some veggies?  And a light cream sauce? Yeah, I am THERE.  Lucky for me, so is my boyfriend, so it works out beautifully ;).  Today we’re making this Pasta Primavera that you can essentially change up according to your liking.  I will share my version, but whatever vegetables you want to add, you can add to the recipe and create your own version!

Adobo Chicken with Salsa Verde is on the menu today, and it was DELICIOUS!  I am a through and through lover of all things Spanish, Mexican, and Peruvian so this dish was just wonderful.  It was also a lot of tinkering to get the salsa verde exactly how I wanted it! [Not too spicy, not bland]  But I think it came out exactly how I had envisioned!

Someone, [that’s me!] forgot to take an ingredients picture, but don’t worry, as always you can find everything you need in the recipe card at the end of the post! Also, in case you didn’t know you can SAVE and PRINT the recipes from that recipe card!

Today is a super fun, easy pasta that is jam packed with good for you food! [Turkey sausage! Quinoa Pasta! Arugula!

[And a fun way to sneak in some greens!] So I hope you enjoy this Tomato Basil Pasta with Turkey Sausage!
