“Interesting combination of the two, to my amazement it turned out tasting quite good. I guess you have gathered by now, that I like to cook and serve the smaller pastas, easier for the "residents" to eat alone. However, this is not for the older generation only, believe me! Found this on Italiancooking and living.com. and have tweaked it a bit.”
