Tagliolini with milk

Tagliolini with milk is a traditional Italian pasta dish of ancient tradition and it was suggested to me by my mother-in-law. The recipe has its origins in south Italy. This pasta is cooked with sugar (or honey) in milk with the addition of cinnamon. Poor in ingredients but very tasty, simple and delicious, homemade pasta dish.
