Italian Pasta

pasta from scratch

I lost no time in getting this done after the experiment yesterday. Everything was from scratch, from the pasta to the sauce. The pasta was from dough that I rolled and shredded into linguini noodles. The sauce had red bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and all kinds of yummy spices. I sprinkled the shredded sharp cheddar cheese on top for good measure before baking the casserole until the cheese melted. This is a recipe I’ve done for many years and it has never failed to please. Making it was so much fun because we had fresh ingredients, cool gadgets, and an aesthetically pleasing casserole dish as a container. In fact, the whole process only took me two hours … most enjoyable cooking experience to date!
