Eater : lighten up with these 12 new takes on comfort food

Pasta packs a heavy dose of carbs, but Brine gives the starchy indulgence a redeeming quality. Their Plankton Pasta ($13) is made with powdered plankton and toasted nori, which turns the bucatini noodles green. The dish includes clams, guanciale, brown butter, and chili threads. Plankton itself is a superfood, full of amino acids and vitamins, so there’s no need to feel too guilty about carbo-loading here.
