Would there be other pasta using other sauce instead of red or white? I'd rather try to group them by how their favour suits a particular dish. And I think you won't put all the listed herb into the sauce too because that too overpowering.

Cool. I just use plain black tea. But I think honey could be the key to the fruit like taste.

I thought you should add the milk, then add the tea leave and let the tea boil within them? You seems to suggesting adding the milk after brewing the tea.

comment Cheaper alternative to parmesan cheese?
I found a cheaper local store which offer "parmesan" cheese with much lower price. It is not Parmigiano Reggiano, but is acceptable because it has brand. In supermarket, it sells for 59.9 HKD for 250g. In this shop, it only require 47HKD for 250g. And it also offers 1kg package which priced at 135HKD.

@nico What is the difference with Parmesan Cheese and what you called Parmigiano Reggiano? I've only seen Cheese named Parmesan in my local supermarket. It's the first time I've heard Parmigiano Reggiano.

I bought extra light olive oil, as combined mixture of virgin olive oil and refined olive oil. I think it is okay.
