Baked Cream Pasta For Breakfast

Happy Thursday. The week flies back, one day closer to more freedom. What's the most excited thing to do ?! 🥳 I understand you might all be having breakfast, but I needed to share this baked cream pasta that I made yesterday. It is actually my Holy Grail ingredient in recipes - it changes the game in both sweet and savory, and it blends into sauces very nicely. Pure texture targets. Don't knock it until you try it. The other - ground nutmeg - yes the spice you put in gingerbread in my opinion is essential in creamy sauces. Only a few pinches are needed and they add great depth of flavor all the time. And no, it won't make the pasta taste like Christmas 🎄 Calm the kids. Enjoy this - I ate it for lunch and dinner yesterday and plan to do the same today. Noodle Heaven💃🏼
