Last week was the big Presto Pasta Night 4th birthday bash and some lucky people won great gifts. In fact, one of the gifts was a copy of Pasta - 40 Recipes for Fine Dining at Home. It's a small but very tasty book, filled with awesome pasta dishes from Chefs across the Maritimes. Lots of my favorite restaurants and inns are mentioned. And since, the publisher sent the copy to me to forward on to lucky Johanna of Green Gourmet Giraffe in Melbourne, Australia...how could I not take a quick peek!
Don't worry Johanna, no cookbooks were stained in the making of this positively, sinfully delicious dish. I took a photo with my trusty iphone...
I didn't have the Port the recipe called for, but sherry was a great second choice... very mellow and ... what can I say... we had seconds!
I'm sharing this with Sarah of Maison Cupcakes for this week's Presto Pasta Night. If you have an interesting pasta, send it to her at sarah (at) maisoncupcake (dot) com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by Thursday, March 10 .
I'm also sending this to Hearth & Soul Recipe Hop.
