Penne Pasta in Red Sauce with Fish

Penne Pasta in Red Sauce with Fish

Pasta is a very versatile dish – its always about the ingredients that go into it that make the difference. We feel that the beauty of pasta is in keeping it simple, with a few, good ingredients added in such a way that they absolutely sing when rounded up together. We thought of adding a twist to the regular pasta by adding fish to the dish. Conjure it up this weekend and bring some Italian flavours to the dinner table.
