Coppa And Courgette Pasta With Exotic Mushrooms

I am submitting this recipe for Coppa And Courgette Pasta With Exotic Mushrooms to Presto Pasta Nights, which is being hosted this week by Kirsten who blogs over at From Kirsten’s Kitchen To Yours

I do not like moral dilemmas. I don’t want to have to argue with myself whether telling or not telling is a good thing. Or alternatively, whether telling or not telling is a bad thing. I am sitting here knowing a friend of mine is hurting herself with her choices. She is making them from an adult, grown up perspective and so I should sit back and allow her to do so. But her choices are hurting her. They are hurting her physiologically and psychologically and it breaks my heart to see her hurting so. But, if I tell her that I know she is doing this she may just pull out of our friendship. That would mean not being there when she really needs someone. I also don’t want her to hide the issues surrounding her, as in the end that would be worse. So, I feel I am left with no choice but to let her carry on making decisions which are harming her. I will have to hope someone else will confront her and tell her. Maybe that is being a bit cowardly, but I really don’t know what other choice to make right now! At least for dinner, this choice was easy. I looked in my fridge, found some coppa, courgettes and mushrooms and made a simple pasta.
