I feely confess that, health concerns aside, I would happily live on bread, pasta, and ice cream. Regular meals often just don't interest me.
But we don't get to ignore health concerns so I need to actually cook dinner.
So one day, while perusing the shelves for inspiration, I discovered these little pasta nests.
I'm sure I've seem them before, but this time they caught my eye and struck my fancy.
So I brought them home and made a variety of dishes.
There are times you want a chewy pasta with more substance, but generally I love angel hair pasta because it doesn't overwhelm the other ingredients.
So the rest was simple and varied. I had assorted meals using these nests because I had a variety of toppings to add. I never used meat sauce, but I"m sure that would work.
I also did it with shrimp, but I accidentally deleted that photo, thinking I'd already shared it. And finally. I did it with chicken - also in honey mustard. It was delicious.
For those of you with grandchildren, I'm thinking this would be a cute way to entice picky eaters.
So, do you decide on pasta by shape or always stick to one?
