Fall in the South can be unpredictable. You look forward to sweater weather all year, but it stays hot until December. But that doesn’t mean I can’t pretend by making some fall comfort foods.

Pasta should be its own food group. I’ll take it any way you give it to me. But the New RAGÚ Simply™ Creamy Alfredo with Cauliflower is half the fat and calories as regular alfredo sauce because it replaces the heavy cream with milk and cauliflower. I’ve also paired it with Sun-Dried Tomato Fruitons and some fresh basil. Fruitons are sun-dried fruit that you can put on just about anything like salads, pasta, ice cream, or yogurt. They are a simple, healthy snack, and my family loved the sun-dried tomatoes in their pasta.
You can find the recipe at the bottom of this post.
Another Fall comfort food staple is a good bowl of soup! Running Press released the BEST cookbook for noodle lovers. THE NOODLE SOUP ORACLE: Hundreds of Possibilities for the World’s Favorite Comfort Food by Michele Humes is like the dictionary, guru guide to noodle soups. I’ve never built my own soups like this before, and The Noodle Soup Oracle breaks it down by ingredients of excellent noodle soup. The book originated from the Noodler app that Humes created. We love a good soup in our house. There are so many ways to mix and match the ingredients.
Hard to believe I’ve never had an egg in my soup. I love the addition. I also discovered a new kitchen tool that is pretty awesome. The Negg® peels hard-boiled eggs super fast. I was a total skeptic at first, and then I gave it a try. I like to make my hard-boiled eggs in batches for meal prep, and I HATE peeling eggs. You pop the egg into the Negg® and add a little water and shake. The egg slides right out! We eat a lot of deviled eggs in our house; someone is always in charge of bringing them to Thanksgiving dinner. We like to make Avocado Deviled Eggs and get some added healthy fats.
When all else fails in your Fall foodie planning, and it just stays hot until December, you can crack open a refreshing Trader Joe’s Organic Herbal Flavored Waters. There are no calories or sugar, and they are offered in amazing flavors like Organic Lemon Ginger and Organic Lemongrass Spearmint.
