This is what the outside of my house looks like:
|Rainy weather = Sad mood for most of the people|
But not for me...
This recipe is perfect to try out on a rainy day just like the one im having today
The weather inspired me to try one of the first dishes i remeber, Pasta al forno
This one always cheers me up no matter what. Its such a warm, healthy and delicious meal.
This is one of the few recipes that i actually love, its a recipe from the Chef Max Menossi and its called Pasta al forno. Its quite a simple but delicious and spicy pasta. Excellent for a family meal and pretty good enough for a romantic dinner.
