When it comes to taking care of household chores we all have our roles.
I take care of the cooking, he takes care of the garbage, we both share day to day clean up and laundry duties. I think we have a pretty good groove going. And sometimes, we both step out of our chore box to help each other out, which is always a nice and welcome surprise.
Normally when I’m planning on going out for dinner, my husband and daughter dine on leftovers or a frozen pizza always kept on hand in case of a dinner emergency. Well, this past week when I was venturing out for a girls night out, I whipped up this super easy and super delicious pasta, surprising my hubby with a restaurant-worthy meal. #wifepoints
Even if you don’t normally take on the “cook” role, this pasta is so easy you may choose the cook rather than clean up duties tonight. With just a few simple ingredients – olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes and salt, the pasta is so flavourful. If you normally fear broccoli rabe for it’s usual bitterness, the boiling of this grown up version of broccoli takes away the sharp bitter flavour.
And this one big bowl of pasta is also a one pot meal. So you could score double points by taking on the cooking and clean up duty. But probably better to keep this a secret – no one wants to pick up extra household chores!
