Cheesy tomato pasta

Christian in Moulin Rouge sang , “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.” and it is so. Love from our family , friends and that special someone. I have always been lucky to be on the receiving end and surrounded by loads of loving friends and family. It wasn’t till I met him that I really learnt to love. According to Google Maps , we are about 12,000 km apart and probably further now. So I cherish every single moment with him , our short get togethers which hopefully will not stay for long. Even when we fight, argue and have unpleasant moments, I still cherish it . It was through these moments that we grew and learnt to understand each other. Now that we are apart, I relish the memories. One of the moments I will never forget was when I fell sick and he cooked for me. His specialty recipe. Maybe it’s not the tastiest pasta recipe in the world but the love and concern with it made it uber yummy. So I dedicate this post to the man who taught me about love and I look forward to many more wonderful moments with him.
