YUM GUYS this is good. And I’m not talking about the noodles… I’m talking about how I’m starting to cook proper meals for myself! This is good! Good things are happening!!!

But yes, the noodles are also good! 😉

I’m home from school today and totally felt like cooking up something gooooood for lunch. I had pinned this recipe a few weeks ago, and remembered it this morning as I was trying to figure out what to make.

It’s such a simple yet delicious recipe, and calls for ingredients that you most likely have in your house. It’s really light, yet filling and has so many delicious flavours. It’s very onion-y and garlic-y so beware if you have a date planned the next day or that night! (Pop a couple extra mints in your mouth!!)

This recipe can be served warm or cold, and you can even add other ingredients like meat or more vegetables.
