  1. Well, that’s definitely becoming my treat meal for the week!

  2. Sounds awesome and tasty. And no yucky grainy carbs. Since I’ve taken grains out of my diet and consumed more veggies and fruits for my carbs I’ve dropped like nothing else. Plus my hunger has seemed to be in control. First time ever!

    1. I love broccolini!! This penne dish sduons so delicious. Good for you for trying something new. Way to branch out! And you were totally rewarded with this fabulous looking meal 🙂

  3. Why do you use the evaporated milk as It’s got more calories than the light coconut milk?

    1. Evaporated milk has less saturated fat (the bad stuff that helps cause heart disease). Yes we are about calorie control, but we want to do it in a healthy way!

  4. What’s a good substitute for coriander?

  5. Hi there, I was wondering what I could use instead of the evaporated milk as I am lactose intolerant…
