Pumpkin Pasta

Very Easy Scarves from Infiknit
This was an Oh Wow moment for me again.  For some reason, I had never thought that you could flavour pasta. How did I miss this, given all the pasta that I have eaten over the years - surely the flavouring was in the sauce. Well, now that someone has given me "permission" to flavour my Penne, the possibilities are endless. Think of basil flavoured pasta with a mushroom sauce or beet flavoured pasta in a sour cream and sausage sauce.

OK, maybe I should just stick to working with yarn! Anyway, the pumpkin pasta was from a restaurant review of a new Italian restaurant (Carisma) in Toronto that had a pasta dish which was pumpkin ravioli stuffed with veal and topped with fried sage. Ymmm.

The parallel in knitting would be dyed yarn (flavoured pasta) whipped up in a cute new design (sauce) and  finished with an elegant pin (garnish). There that was easy - no time at all, as quick as it would take anyone to make pumpkin pasta from scratch. ;)

The pictures are of Fantastic Knitting hand dyed yarn (Alpacalicious) from Infiknit in some saucy patterns with garnishes of pins, buttons or embroidery etc.

Dinner - not pasta again - anything but pasta - anything? - OK pasta.  Here's a site with lots of flavoured pastas - one is even a chocolate pasta - see what you would have missed, if you passed on the pasta!
