Recipe from Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa Family Style Vegetable Oil Kosher salt 1 1/2 pounds linguine 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter 5 tablespoons good olive oil
Summary: The humble can of tuna continues to inspire recipes; this one, from Levana Kirschenbaum's comprehensive new book, "The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen," is a keeper because it uses both the fennel bulb and its fronds. White wine, lemon zest and juice balance the flavors of this pasta dish. The recipe can be easily doubled; for 8 servings, use 14 ounces of tuna. It tastes good as cold leftovers, too.
I spent last week on the coast of Northern California, splitting the time between Marin County north of San Francisco, and Big Sur to the south. We drove north to south in the middle of the week, through golden hills and irrigated rows of green. Suddenly, with fields all around, I sniffed.
Source: Food Network Magazine, March 2011 I changed this recipe around and like what I came out with. The original called for Agnolotti and I used Tortellini. It also called for frozen artichokes, but I find those have zero taste so I used ones packed in oil and drained them.
I found this recipe long ago and can’t believe I’m just now making it. The neat thing about this recipe, is you simmer the noodles in the milk instead of using water then adding it at the end. It’s cheesy and the mustard gives it a nice depth of flavor. It still doesn’t top the blue box for me (I know, I know but I just can’t help that I love it so much) but it is a great homemade alternative.
This meatless Monday thing, I’m getting the hang of it. Don doesn’t like the idea of meatless Mondays (Boys. They like meat). Even worse for him is that Tuesdays end up being meatless, or at least pescatarian, because we do Taco Tuesdays at Rubio’s and eat nothing but fried fish tacos (Tuesdays are also Teatime Tuesdays, and I lay off on the coffee).
