Here’s a great Irish American twist on a traditional meal from the auld sod. It’s certainly a different way of preparing corned beef and cabbage - and as pasta is the most eaten meal in Ireland these days it seems only fitting.

In case that's not your cup of tea here's a recipe for the traditional St. Patrick's Day corned beef and cabbage.
