Tagliolini with milk


This Italian pasta dish of ancient tradition was suggested to me by my mother-in-law and has its origins in south Italy. Traditionally pasta is cooked with sugar (or honey) in milk with the addition of cinnamon. Poor in ingredients but very tasty, simple and delicious, homemade pasta dish.
