Nasturtium pasta; zucchini – 10 June 2011

I decided to use the rampant volunteer nasturtiums while they are abundant. This pasta, from The Pasta Bible (an exceptionally good cookbook), is actually called Penne in a Piquant Cream Sauce, but the salient feature, for me, is the color … Continue reading

Risotto with yellow and oyster mushrooms; long beans with onions – 25 March 2011

Pizza with artichokes and pancetta – 22 January 2011
