Pasta Recipes + Summer Self-Love

Hi friends!

Before we jump into the recipe, I wanted to give you all a few little reminders as we near the beginning of summer! Pools are starting to open, sunscreen is becoming a must, and anxiety is rising around shorts-wearing and bathing suits! Here are my suggestions to navigating self-love this summer:


  1. DROP THE IMPORTANCE OF OTHER PEOPLE’S OPINIONS AND STOP JUDGING YOURSELF AND OTHERS: Other people’s opinions about you don’t matter. What matters is being kind. If you give yourself the liberty to just be who you are, you hold the space for others to do the same. What freedom!
  2. YOU DON’T NEED TO LOOK A CERTAIN WAY TO SHOW UP: You do NOT need to lose ten pounds to be able to enjoy yourself at that party, or the pool or to get that nagging little voice in your head out!  Just bring your tenacity, your joy, your kindness, your best brownies ever, your ability to see the best in people! Whatever it may be, fill in your personal blank. This leads me to my next tip:
  3. IT IS GOOD TO HAVE GOALS BUT NOT SO MUCH THAT IT ROBS YOU OF YOUR PEACE: Treat your beautiful body well because it is a gift, not because you are raging against it! Enough said.
  4. COMPARISON IS THE KILLER OF JOY: She may have a nicer car, nicer house, nicer bod, but let me tell ya she is not YOU! You are unique, you have exactly what you need right now, and you are enough! Walk in that truth— you will experience true joy.

I have two different ways for you all to use this new spaghetti from Cappello’s! Substitute any veggies in these recipes for ones that you love!
