My husband was someone who when I met him said he did not like creamy pasta sauces, he loved this, he has now converted into a creamy pasta eater and really enjoys it. My kids cannot get enough of this, if there are leftovers, they want it for school the next day.
Any type of dried or fresh pasta can be used here.
To make the herb bread: Combine 120g butter (softened) with 1/2 cup chopped mixed fresh herbs and a finely chopped garlic clove. Slice a medium breadstick diagonally; spread each piece with the herb butter. Reshape into a loaf, wrap in aluminium foil and bake in a moderate 180C oven for 30 minutes or until the loaf is crisp and hot.
My family love it hope yours does to.
