In all honesty, Garrett does 90% of the cooking in our house. I really was once a really good cook but he’s better and now that I don’t do it he’s MUCH better than I am. Usually I browse Pinterest or Instagram and find recipes, change them a bit to our liking, and he makes them. I’m much more of a clean the kitchen kind of girl… Doing the dishes is like a stress reliever to me! Lol
Anyways, yesterday I was DYING for pasta and I can’t believe it but I had never heard of a keto pasta so when I found a couple of recipes I decided that’s what we were having for dinner. Unfortunately the ones that I found took 4 hours to dry in the fridge so I was going to have to make it before Garrett got home from work if we were going to have it for dinner.
I cleaned the kitchen and was determined that I was going to nail this and surprise him with keto pasta.
Fast forward 30 minutes later and I’ve destroyed my clean kitchen and made this most ridiculous looking “pasta” ever and I was positive it was not going to taste good. I didn’t even end up making the second serving because the first was such a hot mess.
Garrett got home from work and I showed him our dinner and he found a different recipe that you didn’t have to wait to let it dry and it is SO easy to make that even I could have done it!
I’m telling you guys, you should have this for dinner TONIGHT and let it satisfy all your pasta cravings. I’m so sad that it took us this long to make this because this is going to be a weekly staple for us now.
Plus, after we ate dinner I decided that the recipe didn’t have a very distinct flavor and that I could turn this batter into a sweet bread type dessert and it didn’t disappoint! The recipe for that is here!
