  4. i like how the top crust turns out. Next time i shall let my friend know too about baking pasta with HCP, she has one :)

    1. Thks Lena. This is a good choice instead of using oven. At times I need to cut down in oven usage, it uses up so much electric power. Still keeping a lookout for good oven which is friendly to the electrical bill :)

  5. That's a great kitchen gadget,Alice. The baked pasta looks super!

  6. Hey Alice you have a wonderful blog! :) Love this fusilli bake so much!
