  1. The pasta has come out great Archana.I first tasted this while at US in an Italian restaurant.It was so bland that I had to add generous amounts of Tomato Ketchup and pepper powder.While we were managing to eat it my daughter and son in law were enjoying other many Italian Dishes..My wife said its now OK to eat it.We both felt nothing like the Indian Masala and the Indian style of cooking.

    Well you have done the pasta here so nicely.Wish you com up with many new and exciting stuffs.regards
