It’s National Pasta Day and we’re going to have a great time eating it too…
Pasta invites any number of sauces to carry and add to untold flavors. From dried to homemade pasta, they are all delicious dishes.
Generally, count on 4 – 5 ounces per person, when serving as a main dish.
It’s important to cook all pasta in plenty of boiling water, about 5 – 7 quarts per pound of pasta.
How to Cook Fettuccine with Cream Sauce:
It’s a good idea to have everything prepared prior to starting, as this is a Quick Meal.
It’s easy to make, but you certainly don’t want to overcook the pasta. So, pay good attention after about 5 minutes of boiling.
