When the Cat's away ... the mice will play...
not to worry - these meeses ... (me and kammy) generally only play in the kitchenwhen our beloveds are away,
Tonight was the typical:
kammy: hey - i am thinking of blowing off my plans - are you around
me: yes, but i'm home w/ Limabean
kammy: ok - what you got in the fridge
me: not much... pasta in the pantry, and some herbs in the garden
kammy: great - i have some yummy tomatoes and some mozzarella
me: great - come on over!
so - here's how it goes down:
1 pot boiling water
1 package of pasta - we used: "riccioli" from costco...
1 pint little cute delicious grape or cherry - in season local tomaotes
a few garlic cloves
a bunch of basil from the garden
a container of the little mozzarella balls (ciliegiene)
sprinkles of grated parmesan cheese
splashes of great olive oil
boil the water.
plop in the pasta - 11 min.
reserve some of the water
drain the pasta and put pasta into a bowl
add tomatoes, chopped basil, crushed garlic, mozzarella and olive oil
add some reserved water as needed
sprinkle w/ parm - s&p as you like.
