1-13-18 Kick Ass pasta

I spent all day thinking about this, and tonight I am pleased to say it worked as planned, a simple, no frills, dinner.


1.     Spaghetti
2.     Mushrooms
3.     Asparagus
4.     Olive oil
5.     Onion
6.     Shallots
7.     Garlic
8.     Fresh chopped parsley
9.     Butter
10. White wine
11. Lemon juice
12. Dried Tarragon


I cooked the mushrooms and shallots in olive oil and garlic over high heat until the mushrooms started to brown. I removed them from the pan, deglazed it with wine and set them aside.

Next – cook the onion and garlic in olive oil and add about 2 tbsp of butter and fresh parsley. Add the juice from ½ lemon.  Keep warm while the pasta is cooking.

Wrap the asparagus in wet paper towels and nuke for  one and half minutes.
When the pasta is ready, mix it into the the sauce and transfer to the plates. Top with the mushrooms and add the side of asparagus. Sprinkle with some parsley and enjoy.


Patience loved this, and that says it all.
