Spaghetti alla Ceci (Chickpeas)

Spaghetti all Ceci

It’s meatless Monday!  It’s also another Rachael Ray recipe day.  I’ve never had this dish before, but Rachael caught my attention when she mentioned in her Express Lane Meals cookbook that it’s a traditional Italian dish.  It’s basically spaghetti noodles and a tomato sauce that includes chickpeas.  It was…different.  One thing it was for sure is healthy!  I used whole wheat noodles, and one serving of chickpeas has seven grams of fiber!  Those Italians know how to do it right.

Happy Father’s Day!

Father's Day

With Father’s Day coming up tomorrow, I thought it was only appropriate to post this vintage photo of Mrs. Herb, me, and our awesome dad, taken years ago while on vacation in Fort Myers, Florida.  We are very blessed to have an awesome dad.  He taught me to play baseball, shoot a basketball, drive a car, and, honestly, to cook!  Dad loves to cook and is quite good at it.

My husband and I may no longer be children, nor do we have children of our own, but sometimes, we just want nothing more than a big mess of Sloppy Joes served on a toasted, buttered bun.
