A friend here on Mylot just reminded us that it was National Pasta Day today, October 17. So I went surfing and found this interesting website about it; All this talk about pasta made me salivate for some good homemade macaroni and cheese for lunch today. It will be welcomed as I haven't made it for quite a while. There are so many different ways of making a dish with pasta, which one is your favorite?

Cheating on National Pasta Day? Are you on a reducing diet?

@marlina I have to eat less carbs than most people or I dont feel well the next day, 150 carbs in a day is close to the max my body can handle, so I tend to just avoid things like pasta

@LoriAMoore I try to go lower, some days I do, some days I do not, I just know if I go over that 150 mark I will feel TERRIBLE the next day

We are having pasta today - mine will be plain with butter since I don't eat sauces.

I used to like pasta with butter too, but not anymore. Are you allergic to something in the sauces?

@marlina I can't eat the spices - if was just plain tomatoes it would be ok - but once you add the seasonings I would throw up. It's not allergies - I have a bad stomach and many things I can't eat.

@marlina My mom did, but a cook I am not. She tried to teach me, but she said I was always studying so she just gave up. I just buy the sauce.

That coincidental that its pasta day, just yesterday my husband asked me when I was going to make him some lasagna, he just loves it! But I don't have any intentions on making any when the weather is as warm as it is out, maybe when it cools down some.
