Tonight was Di’s turn to take a break and make us a “simple meal” but she never is known for simplicity so she made an easy meal by her standards.
She started with a first course that I never seem to get around to and that was her signature bruschetta of chopped tomatoes, crushed garlic and drizzled generously with extra virgin olive oil.
This was followed by a main of olive leaf pasta with peas, a bit of chopped tomato, garlic and a splash of her pasta water for added liquid.
A green salad followed with a balsamic dressing.
This was all accompanied by some leftover red of a suspicious variety.
