Look out I'm cooking again
The picture this time is my latest creation. I talked to Mino’s wife at the littlest grocery store and told her I wanted to make something new. I figure if she can explain something to me without writing it down then it’s easy enough to make so here it goes. As told to me…so it could be wrong….
Step 1 Put a little bit of olive oil, butter, and one clove of garlic in saucepan and cook until the garlic is done. Then remove the garlic.
Step 2. Add cherry tomatoes. She didn’t say how to cut them so I cut them in quarters. I hope that’s right. Cook this mixture for a short time. Also add oregano if you like.
Step 3. After the tomatoes have cooked a little add Speck that has been cut into little strips. Oh don’t forget, you probably don’t need to add salt in the first step, as the speck is pretty salty already. Don’t cook the speck too long! Very important! It doesn’t really need to cook.
Step 4. Add the completed sauce to cooked pasta and then cover with Parmesan cheese.
Step 5. Enjoy!
She called it “Pasta della Contessa” but I think she just made the name up because no one at work recognizes the name. It was good and easy to make.
As you can see Nello liked it too. Does he look thinner? He should because I’ve brushed several pounds of hair out of that cat in the last week or two. He has a neck again! Mara showed less interest.
