Feta-Tomato Pasta

Feta-Tomato Pasta

What a whirlwind these past three weeks have been! Between the holidays and having two kids all of a sudden instead of one; it changes everything! I mean, I knew it would, but when its actually happening, it takes some adjustments and getting used to. It’s been wonderful having my hubby around the last three weeks, and sadly, this is his last week home. His final semester starts next Monday. I’m completely nervous prepared, to be home all day with two kiddos. hmph.

I wonder if dinner will ever get made? It was hard enough before with an 18 month old clinging to my leg…I think we’ll have lots of ‘cereal for dinner’ nights. Bad mom alert.

Feta-Tomato Pasta

BUT, on nights that I actually do make suppa, (Does anyone call it ‘supper’ anymore?) this Feta-Tomato Pasta will definitely be one of them! It’s so quick and easy. I literally spend more time letting it simmer than I do cooking. And its awesome. Like, “Ive made this so many times”, awesome.
