I cooked at my sister’s house the day that I made this pasta dish. The reason? My nieces love pasta done in all the ways you can think of. Also, I wanted to have a go a making a creamy Tuscan prawn pasta meal. The spinach, asparagus and olives taste amazing.
When I cook at my sister‘s house, sometimes I bring the ingredients and seasoning because I like to be prepared. I think it is great to cook at someone else’s house because it gets you out of your comfort zone and enables you to have the confidence to cook anywhere. In addition, it is a skill to cook for others as they will taste your food from an objective perspective. Thankfully, it all turned out really well. I would be very happy to cook at my sister’s and for my sister.
