Pasta making just got so much easier...
My first ever Kitchen Aid attachment,
it works like a dream.
It only takes minutes to run it through
and it is so easy
I cannot believe how fast this happens and with very little effort on my part.
I use the food processor to make this pasta
Adrienne from La Vie Quotidienne
gave me the recipe and I love how easy it is to make.
I made a simple sauce
saute onions, garlic and mushrooms in olive oil
add a can of DOP Italian tomatoes
some red pepper flakes, salt and pepper
and simmer for about an hour to allow the flavours to meld.
Cook pasta in boiling water until al dente
fresh pasta takes less time
so check often
sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top
I am getting ready for New Year's Eve dinner
several couples are celebrating at the table
on the menu...
(my BFF calls this a "picky plate")
fresh Dungeness crab
served in the shell ready to pick
drawn butter, lemons, and ginger mayo dip
(which my BFF is making)
I haven't thought of any resolutions to make just yet...
self improvement is one that I often consider
giving back to the community is another
and I think there's a new hairstyle in my future
and possibly redesigning
The Humble Bungalow Blog...
What resolutions are you making?
I hope that you will pop back in 2012.
Best wishes for a Healthy and Happy New Year!
