Last night I visited with my Nana. We decided to get together and drink wine and cook dinner. Needless to say, we had a great time catching up!

Nana is a huge fan of Giada De Laurentiis and records her cooking show. The other day she watched as Giada made a vegetarian pasta dish: baked penne with roasted vegetables. This recipe was the bomb diggity! It didn’t take too long to make, and by the time it popped out of the oven we were ready to dig in.

Take a look at our cooking adventure.
