  1. This is so simple that literally anybody could do it.  Yeah, it’s got a lot of cheese, but this basically a much healthier version of a dish (rigatoni? maybe?) that’s usually made with meat sauce, Italian sausage, meatballs, and no veggies.  I probably wouldn’t have bothered with the extra butter on top, but other than that, this is a fairly hearty main dish with enough cheese to function as a significant protein for a vegetarian.  She just dumped a jar of sauce in, but it was probably a jar of her own marinara sauce recipe that a couple years ago beat even Mario Batali’s recipe in a consumer reports round up.  Not bad for a woman who could also be a fashion model.  Also, not all food network chefs are thin.  Don’t really care if she cheated on her husband, although it doesn’t seem that there’s even a hit of real evidence to any of those claims.  Even if she did, I don’t care about that stuff when it comes to celebrities, chef or otherwise.  Being a public figure automatically equals good and bad press, rumors, etc., and a lot of prying by paparazzi looking to score that story about a rumor that eventually proves to be true!  OMG!  LET’S ALL FREAK OUT.
