Presto Pasta Night, this week hosted by Simona of Briciole.... for the seventh time, no less! But things conspired against me.
I didn't get into the kitchen until almost 7pm, which is late for me. We're usually on dessert or totally done by then. And by the time I had done defrosting and peeling the shrimp and washing and chopping the beet greens it was almost 7:30. In my world, that means no time to hunt for ingredients, or follow a recipe... even a quick one.
In the meantime, I still had a craving for my original idea. So I whipped up the peanut sauce and soaked the Chinese dried Shitaki mushrooms overnight. All that so there would be no excuses for the next night.
If you have a quick... or slow pasta dish, please share with Presto Pasta Nights. Just write about it, mention and link to Presto Pasta Nights and Briciole by tonight. Send your entries to simosite (at) mac (dot)com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com
