I was shopping for my grocery in a supermarket where they had a live cooking station and the shoppers were ordering food. They also had a pasta station and the aroma of the herbs and olive oil was filling the whole space and inviting all to try it out. Even I could hardly resist myself from having it. But I made my mind to make pasta for dinner with the same aroma in my home. Making pasta is easy and does not take much of time. I just picked some available vegetables from my fridge and made Vegetable Pasta in Creamy White Sauce. The herbs I used, namely, thyme, basil and oregano worked their magic with the aroma and the pasta tasted great. Try this out for dinner tonight and enjoy its aroma and taste.
