 There is one thing that I can’t live without while I am watching what I eat.  Carbs.  Oh man.  I love my carbs.  That is why my number one pregnancy craving was this Spaghetti Factory’s Browned Butter Mizithra Spaghetti.   I just love a good plate of pasta and some warm bread.

I also love anything thai or chinese.   These Peanut Ginger Noodles were amazing!  The flavor of the ginger, lime, garlic, and peanut butter combined to make an amazing flavor combination for these noodles.  I especially loved the fresh veggies hidden inside.  Everything about this recipe turned out amazing.  If you are looking for a meatless, flavorful, healthy and easy meal, then this one is just for you!
