For my birthday my hubby gave me a pasta press for my kitchen aid mixer. I finally got a chance to try it after our trip to Hawaii. The pasta was so good and so much cooler than rolling it out by hand. It had such good flavor that I didn't want to pile it with a rich sauce. I started searching online and ended up finding this recipe for Capellini Pomodoro on Olive Garden's website. I was so excited because it is one of my favorite things to order there.
It turned out even better than I imagined it would. You must try this! It is so easy and very light and fresh tasting. It is a meal you feel good about eating.
