This is the start of Italian Week on this blog. After watching America’s Test Kitchen where they made this pasta, I was motivated to make three related dishes. Two involve the pasta recipe, and then there is a surprise one on Friday. It’s more American than Italian, but that often is the case with the Italian food I ate growing up (and about half of my family is Italian…sooooo, yeah). You can make this pasta and have it with any sauce. In fact, I only tossed half of the pasta with sauce and left the rest plain for the next recipe. I reheated it in a marinara sauce and it was great.
