Pasta of Awakening

Huddled in my room with four blankets and a space heater, I couldn't hear the call of summertime. Link defeated the IRL version of the Snowhead temple boss and spring came at last upon the land. But I did not know it. He trumpeted the Sonata of Awakening but I did not hear it. He let the light shine in to melt the snow but I didn't see it. He opened the windows to let in the summer breeze but I did not feel it.

But then came the food. Zucchini. Kielbasa Sausage. Tomatoes. Olives. Feta Cheese and Pasta! It was summer that I smelled! And suddenly, I could see and feel and hear! Summer was here and I could enjoy it! All thanks to the Pasta of Awakening.
