Buttered Bowties with Peas



“You should share the recipe,” my husband told me.


I laughed, “Seriously? It’s not even a recipe. I just threw things together. Simple things. Anyone could do this.”


“Yes, anyone could. That’s the point. It’s easy. But not everyone likes to come up with WHAT to throw together on their own. So just share the recipe.”


So here you go. Blame him. ;)
