Actually, Cost Plus World Market sells sea shells, I just purchase them and make a delicious pasta.
While the noodles were boiling to al dente perfection I sauteed 2 tsp of EVOO and 2 heaping teaspoons of garlic in a pan with red pepper flakes, sea salt, and pepper. Then I added the pasta to the pan along with the juice from one lemon and a little of the reserved pasta water (about 1/4 cup) then I let them simmer a little bit together.
Then I scooped out a heaping 1 cup serving (it made 4 servings total) and added some roasted brussel sprouts and 2 TBSP of parmesan.
Nom! Nom! NOM!
The recipe was inspired by Jenna, but I didnt have any sun dried tomatoes. I'm going to eat every last crumb of the leftovers this week but I'm adding some shrimp for protein (I have a big bag of frozen in my freezer from Costco!) because I was hungry a couple hours after I ate this and I'm pretty sure lack of protein is the culprit.
My workout today was a 40 minute run/walk outside followed by a 5 minute stretch. I have my eyes peeled on Groupon and Living Social for some cheap yoga, because hewboy do I need it.
