You’re never too old to be amused by animal-shaped pasta

I know it’s juvenile but animal-shaped pasta amuses me. Hubby knows it, so he bought a pack. This particular brand – a Tesco’s own brand, aimed at children – had the tagline: food for children that parents can have confidence in. Despite that, little pasta shaped rhinoceroses and giraffes put a smile on my little face.

A simple sauce was required – the pasta couldn’t be upstaged by anything too complicated. So I made up my usual creamy pasta sauce base (an egg and a couple of tbsp of fat free fromage frais, beaten) and added to the cooked pasta with the zest of a lemon and freshly cracked black pepper. Simple and delicious. And animal-shaped!
