I had a few items on my agenda this evening.
1. Find a bookcase. (My old one fell apart and my books are strewn across the spare bedroom)
2. Watch the President’s speech. (Journalistic duty)
3. Make and eat a white wine pasta
4. Watch the NFL season opener (Ok, that was more the boyfriend’s agenda. But I like football, so it was OK by me)
All of these items were successfully completed, including the white wine pasta dish, which I Googled at the end of the work day before starting my other errands. Of course, I learned my lesson of trying to memorize recipes that I think are easy and read it on my BlackBerry.
I also drank some wine.
And voila, pasta!
OK, it didn’t happen quite like that.
It’s more like I tried to read my Blackberry and drink wine at the same time, while boiling water and trying to get the ingredients together for the white wine sauce.
Here’s the recipe from Epicurious.
Ingredients: 1 lb pasta, 4 garlic cloves, chopped, 1/4 cup olive oil, 5 Tbs unsalted butter, 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper, 1 tsp kosher salt, 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper, 1/2 cup white wine, 1/2 cup chopped flat parsley, 1/2 cup grated parmagiano-reggiano cheese
