I was preparing dinner one night last week, and realized that I hadn’t really eaten anything green that day. I try not to let this happen often, but on busy days it certainly does from time to time! I wasn’t really in the mood for a salad, which is my go-to when I want some veggies. Instead, I combined some of my favorite green foods into a creamy green veggie pasta sauce for spaghetti.
