According to Wikipedia
This amazing pasta recipe isn’t the kind Wiki would know. It’s not a red sauce or white sauce baked pasta dishes. Still I go and check what all kinds of sauce Wiki knows. (I am sure; he will flaunt A lot, A LOT!). Okay so Wiki knows
- Brown sauces
- Butter sauces
- Emulsified sauces
- Green sauces
- Hot sauces
- Meat-based sauces
- Sauces made of fresh ingredients
- Sweet sauces
- White sauces
- Alfredo recipe
Huh! He knows much more than I had expected.
According to Vinipedia
The easiest basic pasta recipe ever!
“Come on… you don’t have to say that every time. Of Course, you are welcome.”
Perfectly balanced flavours, balanced perfectly by Amy (my 9 years old daughter). How? The next section will tell.
Let’s talk about this recipe
Roshi, my friend had made this easy cheese pasta recipe on her daughter’s birthday. I still remember another friend of mine came and said “It’s such a simple recipe.” And the conversation ended there. Yes, those days I was not at all into recipes and stories.
Amy however loved the pasta and one fine day when she wanted to have it so she called up Roshi and asked her about it. Roshi told her about the method and ingredients but not the measurements because she never bothers about it. She knows how much of what she would add when she makes it. So when Amy decided to make the pasta, she took the boiled pasta, added the ingredients, tasted it, again added whatever she felt was necessary for the balance and prepared a fantastic pasta and relished it. Amy made it for the first time and ever since then she has been making it. Yes, whenever she is in a mood to have this pasta, even if it’s for her tiffin, she would herself make it.
Yes, this is the simplest pasta recipe I have ever come across, simplest best pasta dishes with awesome result.
Amy uses whole wheat pasta for this recipe. This recipe works absolutely fine with the whole wheat pasta and best cheese for pasta.
The Beauty (the good part about this recipe)
The level of ease! If you have boiled pasta in the refrigerator, your 7 year old child too can make it. A great easy cheese pasta recipe for bachelors and kids!
The Beast (the difficult part of this recipe)
When I say it is the easiest cheese pasta recipe, then it obviously means there is nothing difficult about it. Cheese sauce for pasta is mouth-watering dish.
Let’s just talk
16th August, was my birthday.
For that day I thought the important question would be how old was I? But the question changed to an exclamation! And from old, it changed to grown up and the how changed to wow. So now it was not “how old was I?” Now it was “Wow! How grown up is Amy!”
She made for me an awesome mug cake.
She searched and got my favourite chocolates. And she wrote some beautiful lines for me.
She made a this pasta for my lunch.
I was so happy with all these lovely gestures. So glad to see her grow.
I was very happy about the journey from how to wow.
