    WicklewoodWench's Note:

    I think it is the custard in this pasta dish that makes it exclusive to expectant mums,,,and anyone they decide to let into the secret. I devised this dish while pregnant with my youngest child, and the only way I could satisfy my constant craving and keep my eldest daughter, who lives on pasta, away from my creation was to tell her it was custard instead of cheese sauce... It worked, as everyone knows pregnant women crave strange foods,,,and who is going to be brave enough to put it to the test?

      I made this for my family for supper tonight. It was wonderful! I added a tablespoon of mustard rather than a teaspoon because we like mustard. It was very good. Thanks for posting. I will certainly make it again.
