The pasta looks so creamy and delicious. Thanks so much for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights. As for the herb mixture... are the herbs dried before combining the mixture? I m assuming that there are equal amounts of herbs... is that the case?

Hi Ruth, I dried herbs before combining the mixture. There are approximately equal amounts of herbs, but I don t have the real doses. I will prepare the mixture again this summer and post the recipe here.
