If im not italian, then WHY DO I CRAVE PASTA?!?

I am not Italian... no I am not.. nothing against Italians! My boyfriend, as well as many of my best friends are Italiano! I myself am Russian and Romanian. Although I have never had any of my "Homeland" food, I have (like the rest of the world) HAVE HAD MY SHARE OF ITALIAN!.. and lately I have been craving it!! Sometimes there is nothing better than the taste of SAUCY goodness! Here are pics of my dinner yesterday.. (Flax wrap pizza and a side salad topped with roasted pumpkin seeds!) 

Tonight... Was none other than PASTA! Well.. Kamut Pasta...Ive blogged about it before.. it really great.
Ive been trying to watch my weight, so I only used a single portion of Kamut, and LOADED on the veggies!

Spinach, Mushrooms, Red and Green Peppers, Artichoke, Onion, and LO
TS of Garlic!! (I LOVE GARLIC!) I also threw on a little pasta sauce, and some vegan Mozzarella cheese cut into small cubes.  

Loading Veggies onto ANYTHING will give it bulk without the extra calories. I have found that becoming vegan has allowed me to be able to eat a lot more without gaining weight. Its because our bodies process natural foods that come from the EARTH better than those from Animals.

So..I went to my interview and it went really well! It ended up being a manager rather than a casting director. He seemed really nice, but I'm not sure if I want a manager right now. I guess its good to have someone pulling for you, but I'm definatly going for an Agent at the moment. My voice teacher.. who is amazing (But is moving to Miniapolis!!) Gave my name to Her agent, so hopefully they call me up to come in. This whole bu
siness is confusing. In order to get jobs, you really need an agent, but its nearly impossible to get one unless you know someone. You also need to be equity (Thats actors union) But no one wants to hire you unless you have professional credits!!!

Hopefully being a member of the Rockettes will spark some interest when I start REALLY auditioning!

WELL...Thats really it...

OH BY THE WAY.. Who's gunna Win AMERICAN IDOL!!!

Pasta is just the best comfort food. I used to eat it 3 times a day as a kid. My mom would cook it for breakfast!!

Mmm... I just ate dinner, but your post made me want pasta now!

I have so many memories of Radio City at Christmastime. The Rockettes are class. It's nice to "meet" you :)
Pasta is always number one in my book.

You don't have to be Italian to crave pasta, thankfully! Have you never had Russian food? It's very tasty and some things are easy to veganize.

LOL I crave Thai food all the time! Maybe I was part Thai in a previous life? Of course I crave Italian food too—it’s just so good… I bet EVERYONE craves it! Yours looks especially good. Mmmm veggie pizza!

Who doesn't love pasta?! In fact, people who don't are just completely insane. I never understood those Atkins anti-carb folks...but I do think it's important to pile on the veggies, like you do, and go with a single serving of pasta...I'm really trying to get better about that.
