Pure Food .. I love Christine's view on food and having fun in the kitchen. I've used her earlier book Fearless in the Kitchen to death... well not to death, because I'm still using it. You can read my take on it here and my take on Pure Food, here.
Pure Food's recipe is called Farfalle with Zesty Shrimp, but I can never leave well enough alone - which is precisely what Christine wants us all to do in the kitchen. So here's my version with chorizo, mushrooms and I actually used my special microplane to slice the garlic paper thin...so thin, it melts during cooking.
I'm sharing it with Presto Pasta Night, this week hosted by Tandy of Lavender & Lime and you can send your entries to lavenderandlimeblog (at) gmail (dot)com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by tonight if you want it included in this week's roundup . No time to cook, then check out the results tomorrow.
What's the spark that grabs you in a book or magazine and what do you do with it?
