Can I just say how much I love pasta? I have been making the most delicious combinations lately and most of them are by accident. I usually use penne, sometimes part whole wheat, and add tons of roasted vegetables, then add in some of my puree'd basil and olive oil packs I made last year, add vinegar, salt, more olive oil, goat cheese or mozzarella, and it's the tastiest concoction ever! I even put in some left over bacon bits for flavor. The best thing about cooking is experimentation.
