HI! :-)
I pray this entry finds you in good health and spirits.
I love to feed people and when I invite "you" to my home to feast I don't want anyone to ever leave hungry OR feel left out SO nearly a couple decades ago, one of my oldest sisterfriends became a Vegetarian and I did not want her to "suffer" at our celebration table SO I created this quick and easy vegetarian dish for her with a few of the staples I had in my pantry at the time. (I was surprised to find that all of the guest ended up loving the "pasta dish" too!) sisterfriend loved Roma Angel so much that it is now a favorite at her house, my house, the guest who asked for the recipe-their houses, and whenever I need a quick pot luck dish...Roma Angel is always a hit.
(The only problem is I NEVER measure anything when I cook :-( AND for that I apologize. This is my first contest SO going forward I will try to remember to start measuring so that I can become a better contestant.)
Thanks for allowing me to enter this contest.
Continued Blessings,
