I love trying out recipes all the time and last night I decided to cook Creamy Pasta because I was so just so hungry and didn’t feel like ordering food or even going out to buy food. I found this little gem of a recipe on an amazing Chefs website called “Divas Can Cook”. When I’m in the mood too cook (which is not often) I love making pasta dishes or curry and last night was a pasta night since I already had curry earlier in the week. Since I tried this recipe multiple times I didn’t really have to consult with the original recipe for guidelines because it’s a really easy, fast and simple dish to cook. I think it is a perfect dish for like young people and people who are constantly on the go single or married. I just love making creamy pasta and that’s why I picked today to share with you one of my favorite dishes from Divas Can Cook.
