What is the ideal size & a shape of a woman? You will tell me its "36 24 36". But I will tell you it's "doesn't really matter". Just because you are little too far from having an hourglass body doesn't make you any less attractive. Accept you for what you see in the mirror, stay healthy & live the dream. Anyhow, I can't actually state the same when it comes to shapes of our favorite dinner savior; pasta.
Among 350+ shapes of pasta in the world spaghetti, macaroni, and penne has secured their top three positions for decades. While Spaghetti proudly hold two thirds of pasta production as it ends up in our dinner table, dipped in thick tomato sauce, garnished with flavorsome herbs.
Being a Sri Lankan who can't cook without chillies of any sort, I thought of introducing my best-loved kochchi (bird eye chilli) to twist the flavour pool of typical spaghetti dish with with a tomato base & chicken. Trust me when I say this. My one regret is that I didn't try this combination any sooner. Shall we?
