chefmisterv Pasta Mafalda Corta (I think it translates roughly as short skirt, but my Italian is not as good as my Spanish) cooked very "al dente", as my oldest daughter is an absolute autocrat when it comes to pasta. I prepared the sauce by sauteing Shallots, Russian Red Garlic, Chopped Pine Nuts, Baby Celery Leaves, Dried Harvested Wild Mushrooms, Thyme Leaves, Sumac, Kosher Salt and Black Pepper in a 50/50 of Olive Oil and Unsalted Butter (adding all the ingredients cold, to a cold pan, then turning up the heat, ensures you won't burn the Garlic or scortch the Seasonings). Sauté until Garlic turns golden, reduce the heat, add Marinara Sauce then some grated Old Fort Cheddar Cheese and stir to melt the Cheese. Add the cooked Pasta, toss and serve. I know that Cheddar as Sumac are not Italian ingredients, but I love the flavour and refuse to color in the lines when people get huffy about this stuff. I am all for the classics, but I also believe in adding new ingredients into tried an true dishes. Let's face it if the Italians didn't experiment a little they would still be eating Oats and Barley instead of Pasta and Polenta at topping it off with Figs, Verjuice and Honey, instead of a Peppery Tomato Sauce.

pris_yeung Nothing more satisfying than some classic brunch on a sunday. On the menu: poached egg, smoked salmon, sour cream and hollandaise sauce on pancake with a side of sausages. So fat yet so delicious. 2d
