Finding ways to make things new again is fun and can be life changing. I’ve found this principle especially applies to food. Growing up in a very old-fashioned Italian home, I swear my mother was sure to have a heart attack when I told her I may never eat pasta again.
The truth is, I don’t miss or crave it one bit. I do, however, love a challenge, so I decided that transforming my childhood staple of spaghetti and meat sauce into a Paleo meal fit for a queen was a life necessity. Even if you aren’t living primal, I’m sure you can still appreciate a healthy, hearty staple for you and your family.
When shopping for the ingredients, always buy the highest quality that you can afford and support local whenever possible. My pork came from a farm near my hometown, and I swear it makes all the difference in the world!
