D got home late again, and put together another great, quick meal. The pasta is from a Ten Speed Press book we’ve had forever called something like “100 Best Pasta Recipes.”
He added a salad that was really excellent. On a base of cut romaine, he placed more of the pickled onions from the pannini recipe, and slices from a d’Anjou pear, then topped with a vinaigrette made of olive oil and sherry vinegar with pepper. It was a real Wow 🙂
The wine was odd but fun – a red table wine from Mediterranean France that tells us to serve it chilled. Reminded me somewhat of beaujolais nouveau, though D didn’t think so. He found it really strange, and couldn’t place why. We’re going to get another ($7!) to see if we can sort it out.
