Pasta Nest

I cooked a big bunch of spaghetti yesterday and had some leftover that I did not want to throw away. That brought me to the idea to prepare pasta nests in the oven, using muffin forms. A delicious and simple pasta dish. I had no plan, so I decided to learn it by doing.


Before
the recipe one more thing. It seems like, that lately it is raining awards! My Kitchen Snippets awarded me with the YumYum blog award! Once more thank you a lot! I am going to pass it over to the following foodies whose blogs I enjoy:


Lore from Culinarity

Ingredients:
2 zucchinis

1 onion
1 carrot

Írtam levelet, amit két példányban elküldtem, de nem vagyok biztos benne, hogy megkaptad!
Postázzam a harmadik példányt?
Nagyon ötletes ez a Pasta Nest!
