Tonight's Experimental Cookery was unfortunately another of the rare failures. Fortunately it was quick and easy to put together, and indeed cheap. But the combination of flavours just didn't work for us at all - the pasta was bland, the cheese really didn't come through, and the sweetness of the pear was off-putting.
So I won't be trying this again. (I'm also starting to think that that book was itself a mistake, given that that's now two failures out of only a small number of outings. Still, we'll see.)
