Pasta Potata – Pasta and Potato Soup

It was twilight in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains in New York State while my brother and I played outside while the air smelled like snow. We went to bed in anticipation of a school closure, a day of sledding and having our first bowl of Pasta Pa-don (how our family pronounced it). We woke with excitement to a snow covered winter wonderland and to the smell of my father cooking garlic and oil in the kitchen. We grabbed our sleds and ran outside for a chilly day with the anticipation of being warmed by ‘Pasta Pa-don’.
