AMAZING! That is one of the many words I would use to describe this pasta. It is so creamy and delicious. I don't know where this recipe has been all my life, but is is so good.
In fact, it was so good, both of the kids had two helpings. In fact, I had two helpings too! That is actually pretty unusual in my house (I'm more of a junk food person, not real food).
Ashton's initial response to this dish was that it was "The bomb."
Sydney rolled the noodles around in her mouth a bit and then declared is delicious.
I think we've found a keeper.
