The first time I saw that the pasta was served over top of a bed of shredded lettuce, I wasn’t so sure about how that was going to turn out. Something about pasta and lettuce together just doesn’t sound all that great. I’m adventurous though, so I figured that I would try it out. The worst that could happen is that it wouldn’t taste good and it would get thrown out. I’m so glad that I didn’t shy away from trying this out. It was way better than what I could have ever imagined it to be. We have this quite regularly at our house now both as a side dish and a main entree.
It might sound a little weird at first, but you aren’t going to regret it!
