Dominican style pasta

As my first post on the blog I decided to write a recipe I Learned on my first over ocean trip, to Dominican republic. Amazing, beautiful country with the kindest and most caring people I have ever met. They probably wouldn’t say that this is a special recipe, but for me it was quite different from what I used to eat. It is also the first dish I started making for my family. Usually they are very picky with food, especially about new dishes, but this, a little exotic dish, was loved by almost everyone.

Cute Dominican girls made it in a rush, as high temperatures outside would heat the atmosphere indoors very fast. I spread my eyes to see what they were preparing, and somehow it stayed forever in my brain. This is a good occasion to write it down, as I was always asked: “How do you make it, what are the ingredients, etc.?”.

It is a very simple and fast recipe. So if you are in a hurry one day to make something fast, delicious and not so unhealthy. It is creamy and sweet.
