On a more serious note, I was born in Brooklyn, NY, then after nine years moved to Richmond,VA and lived there for thirty years. Lived in Fayetteville,NC for two and a half years. I lived in Savannah,GA for two years. I'm back in Richmond right now. I'm a recently divorced Christian BBW foodie concerned about human rights, ex-offender re-entry, recovery from all addiction, behavioral health,natural beauty,healthy living,etc. Right now I'm a caregiver,for the elderly,children and those with special needs and I am also trying to become a professional restaurant reviewer and blogger as well as looking for partners,investors & other resources to open a diner in the Bay Area of California or in Savannah Georgia

Let’s Make a Baby Pasta Recipe from Vitamin G blogger Sarah Jio

We don’t know why this pasta is so good at what it does. All we know is that Glamour.com food blogger Sarah Jio has made it three times for her husband; now they have three babies. You do the math.

Penne With Spicy Tomato Sauce

Serves 2 to 4

In a large pot, bring water to a boil, and add a large pinch of kosher salt. Add ¾ lb. penne, and cook following PACKAGE instructions. Drain the pasta, and reserve in a serving bowl. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp. olive oil over moderate heat.

Add 2 minced garlic cloves and ½ tsp. red pepper flakes, and cook, stirring constantly for about 30 seconds.

Add one 14-oz. can whole or diced tomatoes, and crush with the back of your spoon (leaving the sauce a bit chunky). Simmer until warmed through, about 10 MINUTES. Add salt to taste.

Add tomato sauce to the pasta, and toss to coat. Sprinkle ¼ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese on top, and serve—by candlelight!
