This recipe went over really well with my partner.  You should have seen him.  He was literally swooning after the first bite, lol.  This was a first time recipe for me and it was thought up on the spot.  I’m so glad it turned out so well, considering I had no clue what I was going to make for dinner.  😛

 

 

 

A creamy, tangy pasta recipe that’s fast and simple.  Paired with some wonderfully toasted and buttered Turkish bread, it’ll be a great addition to the table.  From my brain to your stomach, enjoy!  😀
