Rethinking Pomodoro

I’m a huge fan of Capellini Pomodoro (as witnessed here and here). But tonight I needed to get to the point. So I improvised by cooking angel hair in chicken broth instead of water, and served it with olive oil. It had the same rich quality as a good Pomodoro, in half the time. And it still paired nicely with a glass of Zin!

The Real McCarbonara

I’m cheesy. Carbonara is smoky. That’s the beauty of using bacon. A few weeks back I Channeled Carbonara by swapping peas for bacon using an Epicurious recipe (with capellini in place of farfalle). And while still delicious, there’s nothing like the real thing. Only critique from David: more bacon!
