I try to only eat pasta that has been handmade by someone’s 90 year old Italian grandmother, but this sounds good too.
I went to Red Robin for my 20th birthday and ordered a Boca burger. The waiter brought it to me and I took a big bite and bragged to my mom about how the Boca burgers tasted pretty close to meat and maybe she should try. Then the waiter came back with an “I’msosorryIgaveyouthewrongthing.” I immediately went to the bathroom and made myself throw up. Now that’s no way to spend a birthday is it?
I’m not going to encourage you to throw up. You’ll be fine.
The key to life is moderation (I say as I have another glass of wine), but if you want to skew towards healthy, try a whole wheat pasta. It tends to have a bit more texture anyway.
Generally make sure the meat stored correctly so there’s less likelihood of cross-contamination (this should be the case for any fridge, not just a veg/meat household).
If you don’t want to share pots & pans, buy your own set.
Celebrate meatless Monday and cook for them.
If all else fails, save up some money and move out?
