After Dinner Thoughts
We loved the Pounded Walnut Strozzapreti! It was incredibly easy to make; I made the pesto in my small food processor. I couldn't find any farro pasta so I used campanelle instead. I used a little bit of the pasta water (approximately 1/4 cup) and maybe should have used more in the finished dish just to add a little bit more moisture to the dish.
The creamed spinach, on the other hand, was okay. Mom and Dad both liked it, but I really didn't - it was too sweet for my taste. I'll try creamed spinach again sometime however with a different recipe.
