    My husband loves pimento. I am not such a big fan, but I thought I would give it a try. What a surprise - he didn't care for this at all and I thought it was a nice change of pace! I made it with farfalla. If you're looking for something different, this is it. But in small doses. I may make it again...maybe for a pot-luck, just to see how the rest of the world likes it! Thanks for sharing!
