Cheese Burst Pizza

Cheese Burst Pizza is offered by Dominos and is demanded by a lot of people. The reason behind this is it has oodles of cheese filled inside the pizza.  I came to know about this pizza through my younger brother. The way he described about this pizza tempted me to taste it once. But we could not make it before my wedding. And after wedding I have asked my husband many times about having this Pizza. But always he smile and denies it diplomatically.  But now I have learnt to make this at home and can make whenever I have a craving for this. For a change, I made this for lunch. And finally my husband too enjoyed it. Now he is also a fan of Pizza..

Pasta(Fusilli) in White Sauce

Pasta is a staple food in Italy. It is made out of Durum Wheat. Durum means hard and it is made from the hardest wheat.  Depending on its shape, it can be called as macroni, penne, fusilli, Spaghetti and so on..

Pasta with white sauce is the favourite one for my husband. He likes white sauce than red sauce. I learnt this recipe from one of my cousins. Tried her recipe with a slight alteration. I used Fusilli Pasta to make this recipe. Pasta is cooked and is enrobed in creamy, freshly made white sauce.  Here I used only Sweet corn kernels. You can also use Broccoli, Red and Yellow Bell pepper. This is Kids favourite…. And of course mine.
