Pasta for two.
Saturday, March 26, 2011
James and I have been running in opposite directions all week. Finally we got a chance to slow down for a pasta dinner together. James set the water to boil while I sautéed garlic and Italian sausage in olive oil. I added in crushed red peppers, oregano, chopped (cooked) potatoes and cooked until the sausage was browned. About 3 minutes before the pasta was al dente I added the broccoli florets to the pasta water and added a good sized splash of wine to the skillet with the sausage. The wine cooked down as I drained the pasta and broccoli and then added it to the frying pan along with a knob of butter. A couple stirs around the pan and a shower of grated cheese made Saturday night dinner ready to go.
