“I love pasta. It's so versatile you could eat it every day of the week and not have the same dish twice. This dish is a throw-together type dish that is so easy. It's the 'whatever happens to be in the fridge or cupboard' type dish. You can add tuna, salmon, shrimp or even legumes as the protein, and any vegetable in the crisper, or none at all. Kick it up with more garlic and spices, or just salt and pepper. Your main ingredients form the staple of the recipe; pasta, egg and broth, and cheese.”
