Darlings ” everything you see I owe to spaghetti”

Sophia Loren

Cripes! If that’s the case then one is half way there to becoming a goddess. At Chez Lee when in doubt or in a dash , pasta is always to hand. Comforting, quick and carb fabulous a simple supper in a bowl. Bliss.

Apparently S.L eats pasta every day. Well, maybe just a bite.

The Italian siren has cookbooks under her waist synching belt. As you know darlings, another day another cookbook!

” Spaghetti can be eaten most successfully if you inhale it like a vacuum cleaner”
