HABERNEROS NOT OPTIONAL FOR THIS RECIPE Ok, Ok, So I love cheese. (and I hate breadcrumbs) When I was poor and could only afford pasta - I couldn't have red sauce because it burn my tummy too much. So I experimented with alternative sauces. Most of them involved cheese. :-) ************ NO BREADCRUMBS PLEASE************ This is a breadcrumb-free recipe. If you feel the need to use bread-crumbs.... for your own safety,please find another recipe - as the secret combination of cheese is rigged to explode and destroy an oven if bread-crumbs are placed on top of it. (sort of like that ammonia-bleach combination. bad. don't do it)
