I wanted to start this post by thanking all the faithful followers of Mi Diario de Cocina, to all those who follow me through social networks or those who take time to just give thanks, among other things. Those are the messages that encourage me to continue with this blog that is part of my life. With the pleasure of helping, and for the love I have of cooking.
I have many ideas for this coming year, and I look forward for this blog to continue emerging. I hope to devote much more to this project that I have for many years already.
I leave you my best wishes for 2015, and that health, well being, love, and of course good food will always be with you.
As for today’s recipe, it is a very simple pasta, but one of the tastiest I‘ve tried, you will not regret cooking it. You can even make it without the seafood, and I assure you that it will be very tasty too. I hope you enjoy it!
