What's Cooking Wednesday

What's cooking today is my camera, along with this dandy little pasta dish... This time I decided to do a photo step-by-step. D. wanted to know if i was doing a photo shoot for Epicurious. Isn't he funny?!?! (Don't I wish.) Of course, if he would tune into the blog a bit more often, he would know all about What's Cooking Wednesday. But, really, he doesn't care as long as SOMETHING is cooking! A special "thanks" to my compliant camera that had to deal with my tempermental lighting and hot olive oil.
