Spaghetti with shell beans and bread crumbs; tomato-basil bruschetta – 3 October 2018

Fettucine with fresh tomato sauce and chevre; avocado and olive salad – 21 July 2018

Pizza with tomatoes, sage, and gorgonzola – 28 September 2017

Our sage plant is going great guns, and we want to use as much of its bounty as possible before it goes relatively dormant for the winter. I said I’d make a pizza. D says “but we want to use … Continue reading

Ravioli with ricotta and spinach in sage butter sauce; zucchini – 5 June 2017

Ricotta and prosciutto ravioli with sage-butter sauce; English peas – 26 May 2017

I used Paul Bertolli’s pasta recipe: 1 cup flour (I scant this) and 1 large egg. “Large” being a variable quantity, I usually add a bit of water to gather up the unwetted bits of flour. Knead, form into a … Continue reading

Bitty bit of fresh pasta with tomato/chevre sauce; asparagus with aioli – 3 May 2017

Still using up the Laura Chenel goat cheese we opened. Costco is now selling this in a terrible container – too large, and too vulnerable once opened. Bring back the 11-oz logs! But we make an attempt 🙂 I weighed … Continue reading

Paccheri with mushrooms and boudin blanc; green beans – 14 January 2017

We needed to use up some white mushrooms, and I suggested trying my boudin blanc pasta with these instead of the usual eryngii and hen-of-the-woods (maitake). I had bought cream for [what turns out to be] tomorrow’s “poblano quiche” so … Continue reading

Linguine with tomato sauce and goat cheese; broccoli; lettuce and carrot – 26 May 2014

Still at Mom’s, but this time I’m cooking my food – after a fashion. I have no garlic, for example, and what herbs I want I have to buy in plastic containers instead of running out to the garden (wrong … Continue reading

Cacio e pere; warm apple and sage salad – 5 January 2014

Since more than half of the ravioli filling was left over from last night’s recipe from Saveur, D suggested just making the ravioli again, but adding more pear, since we could not really taste the pear last night. I did … Continue reading

Linguine with ham, olives, and fresh mozzarella – 1 June 2012

Pork loin, Brussels sprouts, and olives as a pasta sauce – 3 July 2011

7 October 2010 – Penne with cheese sauce, sage butter, and tomatoes; bruschetta

This is a mashup of two recipes from the Pasta Bible, one of the best impulse purchases (at Costco) I’ve ever made. A nasturtium pasta starts with shallots cooked in butter, with cream or half and half added, and cubed … Continue reading
