I am going to try to get back on track with this (because I did find it a good way to use more recipes).
Since April I have been making things from Monday to Friday Pasta by Michele Urvater. I love this book! Since the beginning of April I have made about a dozen different recipes and I have made a couple of them more than once. Among the highlights:
- Garlicky Mushroom Sauce (p. 46) was great over cheese ravioli
- Dijon butter sauce (p. 38) was so good (over tortellini with chopped asparagus added) that we also made the horsradish variation
- Sweet and spicy beef with egg noodles (p. 132) was delicious and spicy--I made the sour cream variation, next time I will try the feta
The only dud was the Pecan Noodle pudding with ricotta cheese. It was too dry and not pudding-y enough for my tastes. I have marked lots of additional recipes in this book to try (including a couscous that is on tonight's menu).
Up next is Martha Hall Foose's Screen Doors and Sweet Tea: Recipes and Tales from a Southern Cook. I may stick with this book for the summer as it has a lot of excellent-sounding warm weather dishes in it that I want to try. When I am ready to move on to another book I will post a report on this one and my next pick.
