Any dish that tastes like Barbie made it and tastes this good has to be tried!!Spicey, vibrant, pink but scrummy pasta with a kick from Rebel Cook by Simon Rimmer (most brilliant cook book)

While we did enjoy this, I am not sure that the cinnamon flavor "went" with this dish. But I usually am not too fond of savory and sweet mixed together. I cut the recipe in half and the fresh dill and parmesan were very nice. I also used 2 cloves of garlic. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT 6, Zingo.
