It’s convenient, less cleaning, and you will be pleasantly surprised how delicious the food will turn out … just as great! Today, I am sharing one of my easy seafood pasta recipe that’s cooked In paper bag. There’s no fuss here, just cook the pasta according to the packaging’s instructions, or until al dente.
