One Pot Comfort Pasta

Today’s recipe is honor of my dad’s miraculous turnaround. Welcome back Dad! I should mention that news of my daughter being pregnant was on the day when he decided to try and sit up, eat a bowl of his favorite muun chi CoCoFIr, and to announce, ‘maybe I will live another year.’ ahhhh the joys of living, family, favorite foods and babies!

One bunch of asparagus - chopped into bite size pieces

Cook the pasta 8 - 10 minutes, add the asparagus after 4 minutes, drain and save 1 cup of the pasta water. Do not rinse.

One chopped yellow squash

Saute for 4 minutes


juice of one lemon

1/2 c of muun chi Scallion Fauxmage
