One Pot Creamy Asparagus Pasta

I love, love this asparagus pasta recipe for a couple of reasons. First, it’s a really creamy, cheesy, indulgent-tasting pasta dish that also happens to be filled with fresh and nutrition-packed ingredients (and only about 325 calories per serving)!

20-Minute Vegan Chili

I have a couple of chili recipes that are richly flavored and cooked on the stove top for an hour or longer.
