I wanted to post a recipe of another Christmas cookie
but then I was visiting my dear friend Rachel's blog
and there I read she was hosting this week's
Presto Pasta Night
ooooh, I could miss that could I :-DDDD
so I looked through my pasta recipes and found a very simply, tasty pasta!
Pasta with Mustard
the first time I made this pasta, and told people what was in, they all said
"aaaaaaaaaah, you so swedish!, no real Italian would ever ever put mustard in a Pasta!"
then they tried it and said: "not bad, not bad at all!" :-DDD
long pasta like Spaghetti
leerdamer or edamer (some hard tasty cheese)
mustard (half mild)
extra virgin olive oil
cook the pasta the time it is written on the package.
I usually keep 2 min less, because we like it very "al dente" here.
(my mother says it's raw!)
while the pasta is cooking, wash the tomatoes and chop in small cubes, do the same with the two cheeses (the mozzarella and the hard cheese)
tear the basil in small pieces by hand (you should not use knives or scissors to do this)
put all in a bowl and add some olive oil (just a few drops) and the mustard
mix all and taste, eventually add mustard.
when the pasta is ready, let it cool a little, add some olive oil and mix so it will not glue together.
add the pasta to the mustard mixture and mix well.
add some basil leaves and serve immediately.
I served it in white ceramic flower pots from IKEA.
a funny way to serve a funny dish.
we have some very strange weather here lately, it is raining so much.
I've leaved on the Garda Lake for almost 30years, and had never seen a autumn/winter so wet.but when the rain stops, the clouds open up, some rays of sun shines through
and we all remember that we live in one of the most charming places in Italy
