A Little Post About Pasta

It was a normal morning. Coffee was made. News websites were being read. And then it happened. I stumbled upon something miraculous. About pasta.

Yes, pasta.

I cook a lot of pasta. It's easy, and cheap, and versatile. Delicious with tomato sauce, cream sauce, pesto, with meat, without meat, hot, cold, and almost any veggie you want to throw at it. The variations are endless and it always hits the spot. And you can eat it in a big bowl.

I like bowl food more than plate food.

Always have. Always will.

But I, like I'm guessing most people, have always just thrown the pasta in a pot of boiling water and walked away for 8-10 minutes.

Well we've all been fools.

FOOLS!

This genius of a man at the NY Times makes pasta, risotto style.

Yes, pasta cooked risotto style! It's madness!

Check it out:


It looks pretty easy, doesn't it?

And it was easy. And delicious. Creamy without adding cream. That's quite an accomplishment.

The Boyfriend loved it. He ate three helpings, but nothing really new there.

You must give it a try.

Or have you already?

How do you like your pasta?

  1. I'm a linguine fan myself. And ravioli with pumpkin or spinach inside. Oh yeah, manicotti too. And lasagne. Hard to say what's my favorite. It's all so good!

  2. Looks delicious!! I love pasta any way I can get it, especially if it is drowned in oregano-heavy sauces OR smothered in cheese (like mac'n'cheese). Risotto happens to be my very very favorite thing to eat on this entire planet, so you MADE MY DAY when you posted this recipe! I'm in LOVE and need to try it immediately! Thanks, Sara, for brightening my day -- I really need it, with finals coming up!!
