Maybe it’s innocence. Maybe it’s bravery. Or maybe it’s just simply youth-ish stupidity, but I had someone cook for me! A 12-year old made me her favorite dish: pasta peach chicken it’s called and yes, that is the particular order in which you have to name the ingredients of this oven dish! 😉
No, don’t worry. The complaints weren’t about this recipe for Arugula Pasta with Fennel Sausage and Tomato. That one got some cheers!

As an eager cook I have a filled pastry; fridge and freezer included. If I don’t want to, I don’t have to go out for shopping for my dinner. Great when a blizzard hits you – if you don’t life in NorCal, best if you just don’t want to. My spaghetti Bolognese can proof that.
>> Let me show you!
Isn’t it funny how eating a dish can make you long to be in another place? Or another season even? Id you have a sunny desire – try this recipe: Pasta salad with tomatoes, watercress and burrata.

As much as I love to tweak recipes to make them my own, there are a few that I simply cannot. This recipe Pasta Caprese is a classic and doesn’t need any changes.
