For Adults:
After serving to kids, I have added 1 tsp crushed red pepper to the pasta to add little spice for Big People. :-). I always save my Crushed Red Pepper packets that comes with Pizza. Those will come handy in these situations.


  • I have used Bombino Brand Shell Pasta, you can use regular Shell pasta that you get in the stores.
  • Add 1 tsp olive oil after draining the pasta, to make it separate from each other.
  • My pasta got little overcooked today, so don't leave pasta on the stove and do chores, (learnt my lesson :-))

Have a Good Night you all!
