Pasta is comfort food. I’m sure all of you would probably agree with me. Of late, I’ve been obsessed with pasta – and it’s a staple at least once a week at home. Another obsession is Farfalle, which I’ve suddenly started preferring over the regular Penne. That’s why its funny that I’ve only posted one pasta recipe on this blog.
Some time last month, one of my favourite fellow food bloggers, Bombay Chowparty — you know her; she was the inspiration behind the Mango Pavlova — posted her latest pasta picture on Facebook. I was instantly intrigued and pretty much hounded her for the recipe. She had made pasta with breadcrumbs, herbs and shallots. So, under some pressure to post it, she did and I made the pasta that very night. It was divine – so different, simple and fragrant. I made it again today – tweaked it just a bit – and decided to post it here.
