I often get kitchen related questions from people over at AskRuth. Sometimes they're about kitchen tools, sometimes they're about cooking. I even have a video clip on what to look for when buying knives and one on chopping. Today I received this email from a pasta lover who's husband is allergic to cheese.
I have a question about pasta dishes. I love cheese, but it takes a lot of imagination and ingenuity to think up tasty non-cheese pasta dishes for my husband who is allergic to cheese. (I even tried making a non cheese pizza for him once. It was an abysmal failure. With pasta dishes, as with pizza, it somehow loses something in the taste bud translation to just leave cheese out of the equation. Do you know of any yummy non cheesy pasta dishes you can post?
How sad is that! So I'm asking everyone out there to help us out. If you have a great, non-cheese (and I'm assuming that also means no milk or cream) pasta dish, let me know and I'll post a special roundup with links to your non cheesy but still delicious pasta dishes.
Here are a few of mine to start the ball rolling.....
BBQ Spaghetti Diablo
Farfalle with Shrimp & Bread Crumbs (my family's favorite)
Spaghetti Puttanesca - MY Favorite
So, please, everyone, help us out with your favorite non-cheese pasta. Just email me the link or the recipe at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm also going to post this question at Presto Pasta Gang on Facebook.
