Hello friends! I know I know, I’ve been totally M.I.A. So sorry! I’ve been consumed with work and personal life stuff.
But I have still been cooking. I just need to get all these posts up. I have a ton of recipes to share with you, so bare with me as I post them.
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I made brunch for my family — so excited to share the recipes with you, especially the egg casserole – it was so good!
For today, I wanted to share a super simple recipe. As I said in a past post, ingredients are the key to a good dish, especially olive oil. And especially in this dish because of the few ingredients. This is a really great weeknight dinner when you’re tired and don’t want to whip up a storm. The olive oil and parmesan cheese (look at that cheese — so good!!)–and you could say the black pepper too–are so important in this dish. The smells are just so inviting. I could eat a whole pound of this pasta – no joke.
Peasants Pasta – stepped up!
1 lb of your favorite pasta
3 tablespoons of a good olive oil
fresh cracked black pepper to taste ( I like a lot)
fresh grated Parmesan cheese
Bring a pot of water to a boil
Add your favorite kind of pasta and cook according to directions on the back (al dente!)
Drain pasta quickly — its ok to have some of the left over water dripping.
Eat the whole pound of pasta. OK not really, its nice to share.
