Behind The Butter

i’m kinda obsessed…

with this amazing heart shaped pasta that the easter bunny brought me!!


And after a lovely Sunday filled with farmers markets, wine tasting and Water for Elephants (SO good!!), you know what I made with it!

So, so, so good. I just love eating outside in the Spring! Especially when there is heart pasta involved.

    Water for Elephants looks excellent! Is it a lot like the book?

    The hearts make me happy. Along with a rattle shaped pasta that I saw at a baby shower, these are the cutest little pasta shapes I have ever seen. 😀

      I actually though it was BETTER than the book (and I never ever ever say that). It was soooooo good!

    Just traveled through Italy for a month and NEVER saw these! Of course, they had penis-shaped ones. And every other weird shape…but no hearts. I LOVE ’em!
