(English text is below. Türkçe tarif için buraya tiklayin)

Ok, this one might be no surprise to anyone, but it always works! I haven’t met a single person who doesn’t like pasta! 

This particular recipe is not something too difficult to make. It is quite basic and yet successful. However, I have to admit that I’ve never cooked pasta with cream sauce before. In my kitchen, pasta is either made with tomato sauce or with minced meat. The reason why I have never made pasta with cream is that cream is something I almost never buy in the first place. Yes, too fat. And tastes too good. We are addicted to good taste and I don’t want cream to become our guilty pleasure. The friendship should remain on a “hello, hello” basis and that’s all. 

Aaah, and having said that and having eaten a big plate of pasta tonight, I feel kind of guilty. I started to do sports regularly and somehow I feel guilty now. Ah well.

Ingredients (Serves 2-4)
