Today’ mission:
Make a healthy pasta dish
Every ninja knows pasta is bad because pasta makes ninja fat!  Everybody knows that being too strict to your diet makes it hard to stay on long term.  That’s why ninja makes this special type of ninja pasta once in a while.  The good thing about it is that PB loves this dish so much that she usually devours almost all of it by herself.  More pasta for PB, less pasta for ninja and ninja stays in shape!
