    babyiguana's Note:

    I invented this recipe because my son loves pasta and cod fish. I would make this even for visitors or for nice evening with the family, lm sure you will enjoy it. Here in Portugal we unsalt our own codfish but, lm sure you can buy frozen Cod that has previously been unsalted (saves some trouble) If you want the experience of unsalting the Codfish yourself, l recommend the forum on Portugal the procedures there are specific--please don’t use fresh Cod for this recipe it will definitely not taste the same. Enjoy

      I followed this recipe as written and it looked good, but it only received a shoulder shrug at the dinner table from the family. All agreed that it wasn't a failed dinner, but not something they would want to enjoy again.
