Some of us single gals over here are holding out hope for a man who can cook, so we’re always curious…who wears the chef’s hat in your relationship? Hopefully, no matter who takes the reigns, spending time together in the kitchen makes for an enjoyable way to unwind after a long day, and this spaghetti with arugula and mint pesto recipe takes ‘pasta night’ (isn’t that everybody’s lazy dinner stand-by?) to a whole new, tasty level.
A few of our favorite spaghetti-making essentials:
