I was strolling through Whole foods yesterday looking for something new to try, and landed in the pasta aisle. I was checking out the Banza collection and saw the only kind of pasta I haven’t tried of theirs, Cavatappi.

Honestly, I’ve never even heard of Cavatappi until then lol. But I grabbed it to give it a go and I’m glad I did.
