It worked out very well for the hanging and drying parts, but then, taking the pasta off was a mess. I guess this rack is good for nothing!
The pasta turned out very good, and we had it with a black-cherry-pesto sauce, this time not overdosing it with pasta. It was delicious! I adapted it to the ingredients I had on hand, so the recipe goes like this:
in a large frying pan over medium-high heat combine :
- 1/3 c olive oil
- 1/2 c chopped basil
- 1/8 c chopped garlic
- 1 chopped scalion
- 2 c grape tomatoes, cut in half
Stir well and mix with the 2 servings of pasta. Top with plenty of good, grated Parmesan or Romano cheese.
Isn't it lovely?
The pasta was served in the dishes I got from a friend as a late-wedding-gift that was totally unnecessary since we got married secretly. But I appreciate it and think their craziness gives them some charm. So thanks, Kelly!
