Pasta Souffle


One of my favourite meal as a child was Pasta Souffle. I loved it so much that at the age of 13 I decided to learn how to make it. This was my very first interaction with cooking and the first meal I made. Since then I’ve tried different ways of making it and today I’m gonna post my favourite one. First food that I learned to cook, first post on my cooking blog. Enjoy!
