Spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce; cranberry beans – 2 September 2013

D made a sauce using a bag of Romas from the bargain veggies shelf at the Bowl. I’m writing this the 7th, so do not remember if this was the first iteration, but I think so. main130902There are mushrooms in the sauce. I was home for Labor Day though the guys went to work, and D asked me to cook the cranberry beans he had shelled – perhaps 1 or 1 1/2 cups of them. I covered them with water and added five cloves of garlic, crushed, and a long (7 inches?) branch of rosemary, and cooked about a half hour. wine130902Then I added 1/2 tsp salt and cooked another 5 or 10 minutes, then covered the pan and let them sit. D just served these alongside the spaghetti for dinner. They were delicious! I left a lot of the spaghetti in this picture, and mixed in some more sauce and made myself a lunch for work. Tucked in a few of the beans, too.

We had a wine that was a gift from our friend H, and we enjoyed it with the meal – a Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina, 2012, which also says “Alamos, the wines of Catena.”




Lunch was notable, too, in that D used up the last of the sofrito in an omelette, which was perfectly delicious.

I think we actually had that no-knead bread in the picture first at lunchtime, but would not swear to it. Might have been… actually was, yesterday evening. Right. Read the blog, silly.
