Author Notes: This 20 minute recipe makes for a quick meal that is simple to cook after a long day of work! Originally, I wanted to create this recipe with pine nuts but could not find them at Trader Joes. Despite my disappointment, I suppose everything happens for a reason---the substitute achieved a unique flavor and texture that surprised me. The simplicity of this recipe shows that food can be celebrated in a way that is tension free and allows you to gather, be completely present, and fixate on each others' stories of the day...truly culinary affection.Sonam Nayar
