Dinner and a movie Just for me

" Life is a Combination of Magic and Pasta"

-Federico Fellini-

When I'm in the mood to just relax by myself nothing quite hits the spot like pasta and a girly movie of my choosing. 

So today I'm sharing one of the easiest pasta dishes that you can always have on hand in your pantry (which I always do!) and my favourite girly movies


Pantry Pasta

boil your water with 2-3 tablespoons of salt (so important) while your water is boiling sauté shallots, mushrooms, garlic, and cherry tomatoes in a little butter and olive oil until soft and caramelized then add about half a jar of store bought marinara, when your about to strain your pasta take 1/4 of pasta water and add to your sauce simmer for a few minutes and then toss all together. This recipe only take about 10 minutes so its so fast and easy!

I cook my pasta al dente so I can toss it together and cover it. While its covered I take a luxurious bubble bath with a big glass of wine then I get into my cutest coziest nightgown to settle in on the couch with my big bowl of pasta which I love topping with chilli flakes and lots of fresh parm! Then I put on one of my favourite girly movies heres my top 5

1.Its complicated

3.Midnight in Paris

4.Julie and Julia
