This week is officially “carb-loading” week for thousands of people get ready for one of the worlds biggest races -The London Marathon. Carbohydrates are essential for fueling the body, especially when getting ready to put the body through 26.2 miles!! I have to say, I’m not the worlds biggest fan of pasta, so today’s recipe is one of my quick meals that I whipped up during my marathon count down 2 years ago, but also works even if you are not training.
