One thing I dislike about buying big pasta is its bigness. Not the size of the individual pasta pieces, but the quantities in which they are sold.
I needed some rigatoni for the Feb cookbook review. Unfortunately I could only find it in 900g bags. Now I feel compelled to use it up--partly because I haven't the space to store so much of it. There's only so much pasta a gal can eat.
Made a twist on a recipe I saw on TV. I think Nigella called it her "big pasta bake" I added ham and onions to the mix--not bad, but it will still last for days.
