This is a great recipe for the holidays. You can color the pasta either red (pink) or green - it makes a really fabulous presentation!

2 tb Powdered sugar
1 Egg, lightly beaten
Red and green food coloring
White Chocolate Cream:

1 tb Liquor (Kahlua, Bailey's, rum, Amaretto, etc) - opt
Ground nutmeg, pinch of freshly grated
