I think we can all agree — there are few things more wonderful in this life than a giant bowl of pasta for dinner. And in these cold and drizzly days of winter, that's basically all we want. Let's just embrace that.

But let's also embrace all those other tried-and-true Italian comfort foods — like crispy polenta cakes topped with greens and beans, a white pizza with wilted spinach and mozzarella, and a creamy risotto made with barley. Let's also embrace our vegetables, because no matter your diet, veggies are pretty awesome. All the more reason to fill that bowl up and dig in.
