I actually whipped this up on Sunday at my daughter & son-in-law's house and just now got around to writing about it.
I wasn't actually sure about the dinner plans (other than that she was going out and I was making dinner after spending a couple of hours playing with the boys - not sure if this was story time or Angry Birds!... which they are teaching me how to play) or what she had in her cupboard, but I came prepared with my gemelli, some leftover salsa verde - that is a fantastic thing to whip up and keep in the fridge for a week or two. It was a great condiment for my goat cheese paninis, an excellent addition to a vinaigrette... but I digress... I also brought a jar of sun dried tomatoes and salt cured black olives. Can you tell I was in the mood for a lot of salty flavours?
At least the grownups liked the pasta... little boys... not so much. This week Alisha of Cook, Craft, Enjoyis hosting Presto Pasta Night and I almost missed joining in the fun. You can still share your pasta if you send your entries to desertmemories (at) hotmail (dot) com and ccruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by tonight.
