Dinner Last Night: Pasta with Roasted Vegetables & Bacon

There's something about cooking, it helps me unwind. After a long day, with its own share of stressful moments, the last thing I want to do when I get home is open my laptop and continue working. I usually save a handful of recipes to try on my fridge, and once home, I begin making whatever sounds most appealing.
Last night, as I was feeling "fallish," I went for a sweet potato pasta, pasta with roasted vegetables and bacon with sauteed mushrooms with herbs. The recipe has you roast sweet potatoes, onions, and cauliflower until they caramelize. But, since I've never been a big fan of cauliflower, I subbed asparagus in instead, which worked just fine.

This looks great. One of my goals for fall is to make one new recipe per week! Sounds like you're good at experimenting in the kitchen!

That looks delicious! I've been trying to cook; somehow it doesn't quite help me unwind as much as it should.
