for breakfast. I selected that day as hubby dear was not home and it was easy to cook pasta for the rest. By end of the day, everybody said they have been eating only pasta throughout the day! I even thought they may not want to eat Pasta for some time. Still, I was glad that they liked all the varieties that I made. In fact, Peddu also ate some of it. So on the whole, it was a nice experience trying out different sauces and different kinds of pasta.
