Many years ago, when my children were young, I realized they had an abnormal love of pasta. Not being a big fan of spaghetti myself, I often searched for new recipes. I found this in one of my cookbooks for kids. It's unusual in that it contains whipped cream in the cooking process. Make extra... they will come back for more.
