If there’s anything I can eat every day without any complaint (aside, of course, from donuts), that would be pasta. It’s truly one of the comfort foods I enjoy eating.
Not only they are satisfying and filling, but also very versatile. You can play around with the sauce and it’d always come out so good. How about you, which summer pasta recipe you like best?
