Pasta in Creamy Red Sauce

I have been a Pasta lover since forever and there are so many valid reasons for my fondness.

  • Less cooking time – Quick fix to hunger or when you are too lazy to cook
  • Easy to make
  • Tastes delish
  • Nutritious
  • No hard and fast rules

Yesterday when I was busy compiling that long post about Must See Places of Melbourne (you can check it out here, I have put alot of effort in compiling it and forcing you to give it a read/like/comment.. :p ); back to the topic, I wasn’t left with much time to cook. As always, Pasta came to the rescue. That is why I feel so deep affection towards it – saves me every time. ❤
