I have been very ill with Valley Fever for a couple of months now. Wouldn't ya know it, school decided to start (not sure why it had to start now, maybe something to do with the fact that education is mandatory!). I was running around all weekend trying to get last minute school supplies, exchanging school clothes, etc. I'm sure we all were. Sunday night (the night before school) we were up sorta kinda late.
I must say that I cannot do too many things at home at once. I lose track of time. I tell my child to go to bed dang it and she PURPOSELY derails me somehow, someway, every time. OK tangent over.
I am in the laundry room wildly folding clothes, looking horrible like I was in a scene from Night of the Living Dead, ready to burst into tears from sheer exhaustion....when I hear:
"Mama! Are my eyeballs huge"?
And I turn...
And I look at this:
And I died right the spot. Then I told her "you are SO lucky you make me laugh. This is exactly why I haven't eaten you yet." Some mothers in the wild eat there young you know. Really.

Did you faint dead at the sight of that picture?? I did when I saw it for the first time. Ok well the picture on Ree's website is phenomenal. Really just a work of art. I immediately ran all over creation and back looking for all of the ingredients. This is our favorite pasta dish. I can't say "of all time" because Oodles of Noodles is really our all time fav. But this puppy is so.....sooooo lemony! I originally got the recipe from The Pioneer Woman but had to alter it. Because I'm, as I have said before, mildly retarded. I could NOT get the cheese to melt (sniff sniff) and it was nearly inedible, unedible, not edible?? Man where is spell check and why are these words not red! You get my drift. It looked.....clumpy. No one wants to eat clumpy, clotted looking food. But the taste makes you literally close your eyes and say OMG with every single stinking bite! Its a heart attack on a plate I tell you. Heavy cream, butter, half and half. You MUST make the recipe with those ingredients. NO altering it NO sir or I will unfriend you from Facebook! And fresh basil only puhlease! Even Walmart sells it for Pete's sake!
Ok, seriously, if anyone actually starts reading these posts, I will post step by step photo's if needed. Or I will just hold a cooking class. I've done that for a couple of my friends! Now read until the end of the recipe and I will tell you how I altered it at the end:
