If I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life, it would probably be pasta and meatballs (with a nice spinach, tomato, mushroom sauté and some grated parmesan cheese). Not only does it taste great and take me back to simpler times but when I'm super busy I know that it's not going to take me very long to whip up dinner for a week.
