I am now 5 weeks out since my Total Knee Replacement. I am just now starting to feel somewhat normal again. Which means …I am back in the kitchen! Lookout! 😉 No, seriously, I am still not cooking anything elaborate or time-consuming. I am not ready to cook anything that has me on my feet for to long …but I am getting there. This is a simple, light, easy recipe that has always been a favorite of mine.
I decided it was the perfect “on the lighter side” New Year’s dish that didn’t have me in the kitchen, on my feet to long. It turned out really good and so I decided it would be a great dish to bring to a fun gathering I am going to. I am talking about Fiesta Friday of course! If you don’t know about Fiesta Friday, you should come with me and check it out. You will see lots of delicious food and meet a great group of people, including our wonderful hostess, Angie, The Novice Gardener. So come on, try some of this delicious Penne Alfredo pasta and join the fun! 🙂
Thanks for visiting!
