Nutrition for Runners: Penne Arrabbiata

20140108-233516.jpg

One of my christmas presents this year was the Athlete’s Palate Cookbook. I had asked for it because I wanted to find more recipes that would fit in with my training both in terms of fuelling and recovering from runs.

I had an opportunity to try my first recipe from the book this past weekend when I made the Penne Arrabbiata recipe found on page 94. I used a can of crushed tomatoes instead of the can of diced tomatoes the recipe called for.

For meat I used maple smoked bacon and I would recommend that option if you try this recipe.

I enjoyed this meal and can definitely see myself maiing it again the night before a long run.
