Today was truly a ‘hump day’… lack of sleep made for a difficult day to push through. One thing that will never suffer… dinner!
So for tonight I decided to make a great oil and garlic pasta dish. For the sauce, my infamous [ok ok maybe in my, and everyone else who has ever eaten its opinion] oil and garlic is pretty simple, but I add different elements from your average dish to make it ultra special. The basics are oil, minced garlic, salt and crushed red pepper. Heated through until fragrant and the extra secret ingredients added… the sauce rests until ready to be combined with the pasta… Tonight’s pasta selection were gorgeous tagliatelle nests! Cooked in salty boiling water till just al dente, then tossed gently into the oil and garlic. To finish bringing everything together… some fresh grated pecorino romano and chopped parsley. In order to assure that no oil and garlic went to waste, some super rustic Italian bread to sop it up!
at a low simmer…
