I make no secret of it. Pasta is one of my absolute favourite things to eat. The Toddster, well not so much, but gradually through the years I have been wearing him down to the point where now he doesn't quite protest so much when I cook it. Me . . . well . . . I am in heaven just to sit down with a bowl of butter pasta garnished with nothing but butter, salt and pepper. I also love to create delicious sauces to serve with it. Pasta is the perfect canvas for highlighting a multitude of flavours and textures. You just can't go wrong with it. It's quick to prepare. It's delicious and with the exception of Todd, it's always a welcome lunch or supper dish!
I just never tire of it. Never . . .
Jamie’s Italian have created this gorgeous pasta infographic, with details of the unique story behind each pasta shape. I think if you click on it you can see it larger. I love reading about the different pasta varieties and their history. Just reading it makes me hungry for some of those delicious shapes and varieties. One day I want to try making my own pasta from scratch, but in the meantime, I'll just have to make do with what I have in the cupboard and larder! I think this dish for Pasta with Courgettes, Tomatoes and Lemon Cream will fit the bill perfectly, don't you? (The fact that it's pretty healthy as well is a bonus!)
