If you are a Facebook fan you already know that my husband Jayson does the cooking in our house.  It wasn’t always that way. But once we realized that my cooking was making us fat (combined we weighed 70 lbs more 7 months ago), my husband kindly stepped up to the plate and cooks the majority of our healthy dinners.Tonight it was Vegetable Farfalle Pasta!  We have been trying out a Flexitarian Diet for about a week now, and this meal was one of those vegetarian meals that was just plain AMAZING!  It didn’t have a sauce but it was still VERY flavorful.  You’ll have to try it out and let me know what you think!
