With everything that goes on each evening, it’s sometimes difficult to get everyone to the dinner table at the same time. Especially for our family because my husband works 24 hour shifts as a paramedic. For more that half the week I am responsible for making sure that it all gets done. On the days when he his home, we make a point to spend this important time together. With “The Modern Family Cookbook” (available for download on the Share a Hug Tab) from Barilla, it is POSSIBLE. In celebration of World Pasta Day, we prepared this 4 ingredient recipe and spent some much needed time together just discussing the day.
