Pasta is a great option for any dinner occasion as it is extremely versatile and can be quite simple to turn into an amazing meal.
San Remo have come up with a great idea to help with portion sizes; Traditional Egg Pasta Nests are something I haven’t seen yet but I will definitely be keeping an eye out for when I do my shopping tomorrow (because I want to make this for dinner tomorrow night).
Pasta Nests require a gentle touch to ensure they remain intact and hold their shape. Leading chef, restauranteur and San Remo brand ambassador Adam Swanson recommends a wooden spoon to gently stir the pot.
This is a great way to take the guesswork out, which is something I really need because I’m always thinking about what to do with leftover pasta – or concerned about stretching it to go far enough.
This recipe is one of Adam Swanson’s favourites and I can see why, it sounds delicious and I will be definitely trying it out in my house.

I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years, I have broadened my horizons considerably. In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews. Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS!
