I’ve realized that most of the recipes I’ve shared lately are pasta related. But I have a good excuse for that!
I’M A STUDENT. And yes students do live out of pasta! Is pasta our favorite food? –Not necessarily.
Then why do we eat it so much? – Because it is one of the simplest and quickest dishes to make!
And having several projects and exams within a week doesn’t allow you more than 30min in the kitchen!
In the past, I always used the store-bought sauces.However, they tend to be high in sugars, sodium, and fat which doesn’t put them on the healthy food list, plus I’ve learned that my body doesn’t feel too happy when I’m eating them.
When I realized this and started to avoid them, I was convinced that it is not possible to make quick, easy yet flavorful and creamy pasta without using a store-bought sauce or cooking cream, and that simply turned out to be very much NOT TRUE! Not that it was way healthier, simple and yet very delicious but cheaper too!
Tomatoes and leek go incredibly well together and give this pasta a very fresh, summer taste! You won’t believe how much texture and flavor can be achieved with only two simple ingredients.
