Please go visit Beth Fish Reads for more cooking this weekend!
Just about a month ago, Bonnie offered a video of Kathleen Flinn making Pasta Pomodoro. Flinn suggests three things I've not done before in cooking pasta and vegetables:
1. salting the pasta water
2. adding some of that water when you sauté the vegetables
3. putting the pasta in the frypan with the vegetables after they are cooked
I've always just put the sautéed vegetables on top of the pasta, but this week I followed Kathleen Flinn's directions, using a yellow pepper, an orange pepper, and some scallions instead of tomatoes. And the result was a wonderful, delicious supper.
In case you haven't seen the video, here it is. I really like this woman's approach to cooking.
