I wanted to try this pasta dish for quite a long time. Luckily hubby got me a slice of parmesan cheese from his last trip to russia. I was so glad that he bought me that. Because i wanted to taste it so badly. Finally i got a chance to try it.

I was in my mom's place, and my sister wanted me to do a pasta dish for her because she is so fond of pasta. I decided to give this a shot, so we went to the grocery shop and purchased few ingredients which we didn't have on hand and made this amazing dish. It turned out so yummy and we digged in straight away.


I made a garlic bread to go with this, will share that recipe soon. And the cool thing is, i had some meatball sauce leftover..So what i did is, i made a sandwich for me out of it this morning and i am muching on it right now. Dont worry all post will be up soon..


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you..
