It was pretty darn tasty! Really it was. The pasta bake was made in honor of a neighbor who just delivered her 12th baby! Twelve! And she’s still alive, and doing well. Cute little nub of a baby. Perfectly round little baby cheeks, and lots of dark hair. She was being adored by lots of brothers and sisters the day I visited. They all had huge smiles of pride over their new baby sister. I’d say she was downright beautiful:) And lucky her, she has the same name as my oldest girl child. We call her Mems for short. She loves it. It all comes from our oldest child only being 17 months old when Mems was born and not being able to speak real well. At night they shared a room and when Emma would start crying you could hear Jed yell, “Shup Mems!!!!” I remember laying in bed laughing with my Jimmy as we heard this exchange. Priceless little moments in time. So Mems she’s been from that day on. An uncle or two will still pull this nickname out every once in a while. It’s cute don’t you think?
Anyway on to the pasta. Nothing feeds a hungry family quite like pasta. I did double the recipe for the family I took it to and I think they had enough. At least they said they did. I hope they weren’t lying:) My family loves all sorts of pasta bakes. They’re pretty easy to make and can feed a crowd. Usually all you need to complete the meal is a great green salad (you can see that salad on my previous post), and a lovely loaf of bread. I kind of have an IN there. So enjoy and remember you can always improvise. Make it your own and take full credit for the deliciousness!
