Herb and Cheese Pasta Supreme

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin

I toyed with some selected ingredients from the RSC #11 contest, added my own and came up with this delightful pasta recipe. My family fell in love with it and told me that it just could be a winner.

This is delicious and definitely ranks as high-end comfort food. It has a lot of what I refer to as "moving parts" and is not a dish I'd make regularly. Still, it was a great excuse to have something completely indulgent and I'm glad I tried it!
