Two of my favorite dishes in the world are chicken and pasta. In fact, if I had a death sentence looming before me, I would ask a big plate of pasta with a roasted chicken with it. And it’s a done deal.

Grabbed the April 2010 issue of YUMMY Magazine a week ago from Book Sale since they featured 12 sensational sauces to try for pasta lovers out there. I must admit I’m starting to become a pasta person and I have cooked a few which I can attest successful, I guess.


This past issue presents recipes ranging from Chunky Seafood Sauce to Tinapa Cream Sauce. But what I really wanted to try is the Malunggay Pesto. I’m interested what the texture and the taste would be like combining Malunggay leaves, basils, extra virgin olive oil and parmesan. Hmmmm..
