For various reasons last night had to be a simple yet filling meal so I made the simplest of pastas: garlic and olive oil. It is probably good to have fairly large amount of chopped parsley available to mix into the pasta just before serving. I crushed the garlic as an experiment last night but it was an unsuccessful experiment. The recipes call for sliced garlic which is what I have done in the past so I will be going back to the tried an’ true methods.
Obviously there must always be a salad and I made an insignificant one using the meagre remains that had collected in the fridge.
To compensate for this terribly inexpensive meal I lookedat the rack and found a delicious Carpineto Chianti Classico. The first sip was on the sweet side but decanting with some air to it meant that it was very good and a suitable beverage with the pasta. I do not believe that it was terribly expensive so I’ll see if there is some more in stock at the local store.
