My Dinner Experience with Del Monte pasta #ItalianEscapades

Hello my friends! Last night, my hubby told me – ‘I’m feeling bore with regular dishes; cook something new, something special, something non-Indian with little of your Indian touch! I was so scared! Last night, I had almost nothing to cook any innovative dish in my kitchen! What can I cook that may satisfy him? Suddenly, I remember that I have some Del Monte Spiral pasta in my kitchen. I asked my hubby that pasta is nice for him or not. He asked – ‘OK; but change your cooking style and please, don't use any kind of meat or fish’! I usually cook pasta in Italian style, as I learnt from cooking magazines; but never tried my own thoughts! Then I opened my refrigerator and find some eggs, fresh cream, butter and pasta sauce. I finally cooked the Pastas with these ingredients and served him for dinner. My hubby said that it was an amazing experience to eat pasta in that style! Now, I’m going to share my all experiences, read it and tell me how it is!
