There is so much to love about pasta,one of the things I love is that pasta is so versatile. You can add and modify ingredients and it still tastes unbelievable. My brother, Gary, has an adventurous spirit in and out of the kitchen and is so much fun to be around. He sent me the above picture enjoying his pasta. I wish we lived closer to each other for so many different reasons, one of which it would be fun to try each others cooking creations.
Gary made my Bacon and Swiss Chard with Penne recipe even better with the addition of two ingredients: Tomatoes and fresh chopped basil. Just add these at the end and toss with pasta.
Try it both ways! Enjoy!!
