Basil & Lemon Creamy Pasta with Dorot Gardens, Your Personal Sous Chef

 

Cooking can take so much time. I feel like I can be in the kitchen for hours when I only intended to make dinner in 30 minutes, but with all the chopping and prep. But now, that has all changed.

Herbs already chopped up in individual pockets and ready to cook with. Oh.My.Gosh! This will change everything! I love that I can make so many recipes without having to chop up the herbs.

So, I have been making some salads and sandwiches at home. I have been craving some burritos lately, but then I thought I should just make a burrito bowl. I can have my salad and burrito in one bowl.
