Happy Prince Spaghetti Day!

It’s Wednesday and in my kitchen or cucina, that means it’s Prince Spaghetti Day! Yay! I’m sure you’ve heard of this term before, the slogan line for the Prince line of spaghetti products that you can find almost anywhere.

Every Italian girl’s dream. These days though, I don’t eat pasta as much as I once did for obvious reasons and all that garlic bread leaves me bloated for a full day after. Doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy some pasta in the form of a fresh, clean and green soup… so thanks Prince for giving me a reason to create this recipe today!  read more…
