pasta ala me :D

Been wanting to cook pasta for a long time :P The last time I cook it was last April , and that's wayyyy too long for a pasta junkie like me : (  Actually , before I know how to cook rice I already know how to cook a mean pasta :D And it was a long time ago during our Home Economics class , when my classmate washed the already minced pork to be used for our spaghetti with tomato sauce , you could imagine the look in our teacher's face hee hee Pasta in the Philippines before ( most notably in our household ), usually means spaghetti cooked with tomato sauce , mince pork & some hotdog ( sausages ) or with white sauce ,( popularized by then the late Corazon Aquino during that Christmas aeons ago :D ) she used Nestle cream  , I guess , for her sauce base ( I was young hee hee at the time ) and macaroni for our fruit salad . I don't know why they usually add macaroni to the fruit salad , which I didn't really like :P  But now we have different kind of pasta there , from fettucine , linguine , penne , fusilli , lasagna the list goes on and on . But my 1st love :D would be the spaghetti . This is the only dish , I guess , that I wouldn't need to google to check out the ingredients hahahaha
