So tonight I again tested my culinary skills, attempting to create a yummy pasta dish. I love pasta. I could live on pasta, except I would probably get fat doing so. That’s why I like to include veggies in my pasta, like tonight. I started with 3 cloves of fresh garlic, minced as much as I could get them minced. Then I sliced/cubed my zucchini and put it in with the minced garlic (and some canola oil to saute in). For some extra flavor, I added some squirts of lemon juice, some oregano, basil, and rosemary. I would also recommend salt at that point, and maybe not the rosemary. I let that cook for a bit, then I added sliced, chopped mushrooms. After those got a little tender, I added the slices of a massive roma tomato. Once those had warmed through, I poured in a little thing of whipping cream and some Parmesan cheese, because I love white sauces. Of course, it turned out a little orange because of the tomatoes, but the flavor was quite excellent! The lemon did a lot to zip up the ensemble, and a dash of nutmeg at the end also gave it a little secret punch. The only letdown of my recipe was that I used angel hair pasta, when bowties would have been more appropriate.
