Additional Information:
It has been quite successful experience with home shopping delivery. Although we bought ingredients suitable for 2 people, there are quite a lot of left overs. So today, I decided to make this dish with a little twist. I added in green peas to increase the vegetable contents and added some cheese as topping. It is very fast to make and Joshua and Florian like this pasta a lot. The original recipe is here and it calls for clayfish.
