I honestly don't even remember all I put in this thing....a little pasta, a vegetable, some cheeses, some outrageously mismatched spices, and I forget the rest. I was really proud that I could create something off the top of my head and was excited to try the final result. Michael got home from work, I finished up dinner, and we sat down to try it out. After only one bite, we both looked at each other with one of those disgusted looks and couldn't eat anymore. I've always appreciated that Michael is honest about the things I fix. My feelings might be hurt a little, but they'd be hurt way more if he pretended he liked it. I knew deep down that it was gross. We threw it out and ordered pizza, I think.
Since then, I've come quite a way with my cooking skills. One of my favorite types of food is Italian and I wanted a way to create a nice dish at home instead of always craving it from somewhere else. I tried this recipe twice before I got it the way I wanted it and now it's one of our favorites. It is so quick and easy to fix and is so delicious. And this one is way better than the newlywed mystery pasta dinner.

Have you ever had a creative trial recipe go terribly wrong? Or have you ever put something together and been surprised when it tasted great?
