Riccoli with Mushrooms and Sun-dried Tomatoes & Walnut Pesto

2 things bout this pasta. One is that it is quick, effortless and tasty. Two……A sweet memory associated with it. Recipe given shows how easy and effortless it is o prepare the pasta.

Regarding the memory….Sonny n we 2 have our dinner at he same time. Around 8 pm. Sonny’s dinner was rice, dal n chicken mashed. Ours is this pasta. While his food was being mashed, I gave him this pasta ( to soothe his hunger pangs…) he liked it 7 wanted more…..I gave him more. Later when I gave him his usual food…..he spat it out. Gave it again and he spat…..!!!! I gave the pasta and he was happy again………!!!! Oh baby…!!! I felt happy. His tiny lot taste buds wants new tastes. So, good that the pasta was a li’l overcooked than al-dente.
Now drooling over the pic……I move to the next part
