FOOD DIARY: Monday, April 29th

Yesterday I made an old favourite comfort meal: Penne Puttanesca.  It is a delicious, if you enjoy strong flavours as do I, simple pasta sauce   I used penne past because the hollows of the pasta shape fill with the liquid of the sauce.  I decided to use the entire can of Italian chopped tomatoes because the tomatoes have a good deal of juice and that is what finds its way into the pasta.

I flavoured the tomatoes with anchovies, chopped capers with a little of their juice, chopped black olives and a good shake of chili flakes.  Last night I also added some pieces of smoked salmon for a little extra taste.

As a cleanser I made a green salad with crushed cherry tomatoes, about five apiece as I remember, black olives for  Di and green ones for me plus a sliced mushroom apiece.  Our liquid of choice was a Clean Skin red.
