Cookbook Journey 2: Spaghetti Vongole

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe yet. It is probably the quickest pasta recipe I can think of, well aside from adding parmigiano cheese, chilli and lemon zest to ready-made pasta (also delicious by the way!).

Rustic Olive and Caper Spaghetti

I’m sure you can agree that there’s nothing more comforting than a big bowl of pasta. Coming from an Italian family, we love to eat bowls and bowls of different kinds of pasta. If you’ve seen the Disney movie, Ratatouille, you might remember the food critic’s flash back to childhood when he has his first spoon…
