If you’re a certified pasta lover but craving for something far from traditional, try these unique dishes from your favorite celebrities. Apart from visually appetizing, these servings will excite the taste buds until the last strand of pasta swirls into your mouth!

Cream Pasta with Smoked Salmon

The first to reign in this pasta battle is Janice de Belen with her ultra Instagrammable and flavorful Cream Pasta with Smoked Salmon recipe. The white wine surely adds depth to the sauce’s garlicky flavor!

The seasoned actress reveals why she hasn’t yet ventured into the food business even with a culinary diploma and striking expertise. “Duwag ako, eh,” she says. Janice simply does not want to take the risk and fail. But if she finally has the guts, she would like to team up with son Chef Luigi Muhlach, so one of them could keep close tabs on the restaurant.
