 It’s rich, velvety, and earthy yet subtle and hearty – just the kind of supper I want to enjoy on a chilly late autumn evening.

See you tomorrow morning for the second installment of Project Enthusiasm!

    I’m not a giant pasta fan, but this looks amazing! I may have to try it 🙂

  2. Your photos of this dish are incredible!!! I love the pretty colours, and the garnish on top.

    In regard to your question about the Lara bars … I have only had the one so far, and I really liked it. I will make sure to post my thoughts about the other 2 when I try them!
