Creamy Herbed Pasta *with pinenuts
Pasta is always a good idea when you have a crowd - it stretches to feed whomever shows up. A good friend of mine tweaked several recipes to come up with this new combination.
When I have unannounced visits from family, it can make me a little stressed when it looks like they will stay until dinner. I usually have most of these ingredients on hand (I make a point of always having cottage cheese, cream cheese, parmesan, canned chicken broth, freeze-dried mushrooms, frozen grilled chicken strips, and packages of pasta on hand) So the only thing I need to worry about is the pinenuts - but lately I’ve kept a bag in my refrigerator - they add a “gourmet” touch to anything in a pinch.
