Nasty

As A 2 star chef I thought I would give this a try. Thinking I could add something new for the up coming holidays. I have never tasted something so nasty! My customers wouldn't even eat it!

No one could be more surprised than I was

This recipe seemed made for me. I made a pumpkin pie, but hadn't a clue as to what would be good for dinner...I took out the remaining pumpkin, and started rounding up ingredients. Having given up meat for lent, I grilled the sausages on our countertop grill for the rest of my family, and prepared the pasta as directed. It was absolutely delicious, and I did not miss the meat. I will make this regularly, now that I know how good it tastes/how good it is for my family. I want to try it with grilled shredded chicken, too.
