Spaghetti with mushrooms, pine nuts, parsley, and pecorino – 9 January 2011

D cooked his official pasta, which is a terrific dish. It consists of mushrooms and pinenuts, cooked in oil, with parsley added. This is tossed with spaghetti, and pecorino is shaved over the top with a carrot peeler. Simple and delicious.

He made a salad of romaine with tangerine sections. Though writing this on the 27th, I remember how good this was, the tangerine taste being unexpected. I think that is a balsamic vinaigrette over the top.

He chose a simple but good wine from Costco called Monte Antico, which we have rather a lot, since it is majorly cheap. Sorry it’s out of focus, but there will be a lot more pictures of it before long 😉

My notes from our first Monte Antico last year say it is Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon.
