Another bold recipe suggested by my dad (last one had beans and chicken in it, see Week 12: Spaghetti Quattro (Miss Delish). There was a bad earthquake in Rome last week and this pasta is a specialty in the region, so my family wanted to try it. You can find the recipe from Bon Appetit HERE) This pasta was amazing; the sauce was thick and the meat burned off quite a bit of fat that really made this pasta tasty. By far one of my favourite recipes I’ve made so far, I’ve got to give this a 9.5/10

 

Week 14: Pasta with Butternut Squash and Sage (New York Times Cooking App)

I’ve been on hiatus for the last few months, however, have been keeping up the pasta making with friends and family. This recipe from the New York times cooking app made a ridiculous serving size (check it out HERE). We were able to feed five people and probably had about 3 servings leftover (a good lunch for the next day). It is has a very brothy taste and would be a great pasta to make on a cold and rainy day. One criticism of this recipe is that it seems to lack in the protein department, and would have been better with some sort of protein (maybe prosciutto?)  We’d give this recipe a 7.5/10
