Keto Week 16 – Review

Keto Week 16 – Review

Capricciosa ‘Pasta’

Capricciosa ‘Pasta’

Words cannot describe just how much I love this pasta dish, and I think it may actually have surpassed my Chorizo, Aubergine and Tomato recipe as my new favourite! I liked it so much, and it’s SO easy to prepare that I had it twice […]
