Going Green. Again.

What would you be in the mood for after walking 8 miles ,just to visit your local bank ? That's 12 km for my European fans out there ?  Well for me, and my fan club, a good dose of carbs delivered via a nice bowl of pasta would do the trick. So today, on this glorious spring day , when the colors of Spring  were in full force, not a cloud in the sky,  an ounce of mist to spoil the walk , green pasta made it out of my pantry , into my pot  and then into our happy bellies.

Spinach Linguine and Tomato Sauce

Preparation Notes: 
Not much to say here, it's just a bowl of pasta. Or is it ?  

Well, I did use some De Cecco Spinach linguine. It's high quality, fairly easy to find , and holds up well to th the cooking process. And I did combine an Italian purée' (passata di pomodoro)  tomato sauce with some fresh , vine tomatoes that were ripe . Cooked the pasta al dente.  Dinner  was served, again!

Just a bowl of pasta? How dare I trvialize, one of the fan club's favorites ! This was a one of the great simple dishes that I will look to, when the seasons are right.

Longer days than usual, and lots of New York Metro pressure than I would like on a daily basis. So,  with the weatherman telling me that we would have some fairly nice outlooks for this weekend,  I decided to spend less time playing with my computers. My plans included included resuming and catching up with some of my blogging.. You've seen some of that already . But my highlight for the day  was for me and my Queen to head down to Chinatown in NYC.  Our plans: do some food shopping , correction some "window" food shopping and course,  just take in as much we could of the Chinatown scene. Given that Little Italy is also right next door to Chinatown, we would stop there too. If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown  nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors.  Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.

The plan worked out. So do read on.

Paella Experimentation

There are times that I love to experiment just to kill away the boredom. And I get to play the culinary Guinea Pig. Yummy

Here are some plays on Paella

This was made with Brown Rice, Very different way to cook.  Grouper Filet , who would have thought, was made part of the recipe.
