Faux-sta Ricotta

Hey Readers!

Soooooo…..GUESS WHAT?!?!

This chicky is going to university in the fall with $7,500 worth of scholarships on her back. I can’t believe it! I submitted my application and transcripts a week ago, the admissions counsellor called me to confirm they got my application on Wednesday, and then the next day they called saying I was admitted…talk about instant acceptance! AHH I’m soo excited!!!

Okay, so now back to cooking. I was whipping my parents and I dinner last night and to my surprise, it turned out absolutely fantastic. Light, creamy, and a great way to sneak in some phytochemicals, and minerals for them veggie haters out there! The spagetti squash adds a nice, sweet flavour to the dish as well, my preference over pasta.
