Yummy Recipes

September 10, 2008

My tomatoes are doing OK but not well enough to warrant another photo.  So how about some recipes?  Both of these are from the TV show Everyday Italian with Giada De Laurentiis.

Spaghetti with Olives and Breadcrumbs is simple and so good (if you like simple food that tastes really good). I’d never tried a breadcrumb and pasta combo before but I’m hooked now.  I decreased the olive oil and increased the breadcrumbs.

Crostata with Mushrooms and Pancetta takes longer to put together, but it’s time well spent.  I sauteed mushrooms, shallots, and red bell pepper for the veggie component.  I’m not even a mushroom fan and I loved this!  The crust is the real star of the show with this recipe.  I had a dream about the crust after I ate it.

Happy cooking, and even happier eating!
