Caroline Manzo is the queen of making recipes in large batches that she can refrigerate and reheat for days. She once referred to her super-easy giambotta recipe as the thing she whips up "to keep in the fridge for my fat a-- to eat all week." (Since that self-deprecating comment, she lost 20 pounds by cutting this food out of her diet.) Now, she's sharing another recipe that she likes to keep on hand for cravings.
"Made aglio e oglio to have in the refrigerator for when the mood hits," she wrote on Instagram, to caption a photo of an enormous pot of pasta. "This dish takes me back to my childhood when we’d ask my grandmother to make it — no matter what the time of day or night, she never denied us."
She added, "So many great memories and food somehow always played a part in them," underscoring her oft-repeated point of view that food is inextricably intertwined with family and with love in her world.
