Better Homes and Gardens Pasta Cookbook Review

And now, back to cooking.

I was hesitant about cooking a recipe from Better Homes and Gardens Pasta Cooking for Today cookbook as I did not like the last BHG cookbook I cooked from.All about pasta, this cookbook is broken down into sections such as saucy favorites, side dish, salads . . . I chose this recipe in the from the oven section.Here are the ingredients I used.I replaced parmigiana with pecorino.I'd say my version looks pretty close to the original.This was just okay for me which is surprising because this I-talian hasn't really had a bad pasta experience.

I like a bit more spice in my dishes so this recipe could've used some hot red pepper flakes.

I will definitely cook some other recipes from this cookbook. Maybe just not this one.

What's your favorite pasta dish?

Your pics are great, love the balancing act with the nutmeg:@) This recipe seems like a bit of work for what it is. I do love pasta dishes though!

That looks really tasty but sorry it didn't turn out that way. I enjoy hearing about your new recipe a week saga.

A blogger up in Vancouver mentioned using nutmeg in her lasagna...I am going to give it a try the next time I make a red sauce, it sounds intriguing. Your pasta looks delicious, love the spinach and Pecorino!

Too bad it did not live up to your expectations. With all the fabulous ingredients, I'm surprised it wasn't amazing! My favorite pasta dish is lemon linguine!
