Something you might not know about me: I’m 1/2 Italian. This means that, naturally, I love any meal that includes lots of pasta and bread. The words “low” and “carb” do not exist, in that order, in my vocabulary. It’s just not written into my DNA to be able to sustain on a pasta and bread free diet. I have accepted this truth.

Another fun fact about me: I leave TODAY for Portland, Oregon and I am VERY very excited about this trip (technically I’m going to Eugene and THEN Portland). I’m headed there with my team for a giant roller derby tournament BUT I will have 3 days afterwards with nothing to do but eat and explore the city. Please, please leave me your restaurant recommendations!

So, today we’re going to keep it short and simple. Here’s some delicious noodles for you:
