Do you love pasta? If you do, you may want to soup up your usual recipes. Read on.
Here are ways to jazz up your pasta:
- slivered sun-dried tomatoes can be added in your traditional mac and cheese
- freshly grated lemon zest will brighten up a creamy seafood sauce
- dried mushrooms will definitely add flavor. just make sure to rehydrate them by boiling water and let the dried mushroom soak for 15 minutes. the liquid if strained may also be added to replace some of the liquid in your pasta recipe.
- a tablespoon or two of capers can help pump up the flavor of a no-cook tomato sauce or a jarred marinara. you can also add some pitted, chopped olives.
