I decided to surprise my family with dinner and made a delicious pan of Rasta Pasta. The dish was super easy to make and is honestly one of my favorites. My eldest nephew asks me to cook often, so as a good auntie should, I try to create meals that are not only pleasing to the palate, but also nutritious.
