I haven't checked in for a while. I have been cooking less Italian and trying to trim down.
But I haven't stopped.
Here is a celery and tomato pasta sauce from Marcella Cucina - the book, I think, that is her most physically beautiful and engagingly written.
It was a surprising and delicious sauce. Smooth but not buttery from the 3 tablespoons of butter and the tablespoon of oil. Herby and grassy (in a good way) from the celery - I use those words but really it was an intriguing flavour I find difficult to describe.
Some say it smelt like the garden......
In any event it was a fine and tasty pasta. I would like to make it again.
Another winner from Marcella Hazan.
