Pasta is so good!

Wouldn’t you agree??

I try not to order it too often when I’m out to eat because I usually feel guilty knowing most are in a heavy, butter-y sauce but I always cave when I’m at Serendipity in New York City. My husband and I first went there last year for our 10 year anniversary, but I’ve been lucky enough to have gone back to the Big Apple two more times in the last year for work purposes. Both times I was able to go back to Serendipity and both times I had to get the Madame Butterfly. It’s the dish my husband ordered when we went the first time, and it is seriously so delicious and flavorful that I had to order it again. This Garlic Butter Pasta is filled with chunks of carrots, peppers, olives and topped with cheese and parsley. It was so good I wanted to try a copycat version at home, and I’m happy to report that today’s recipe tastes just like it. Since I was able to try it a few times, I really tried to analyze the flavors and hope you like it just as much as we did. I also hope that you can make it to NYC to try the real thing!! Not only do they have this delicious pasta dish but they have the BEST Frozen Hot Cocoa. 😀
