Well, its fall and haven't been blogging much. Life keeps getting in the way of my sitting at the computer and sharing what is going on. Well business is booming and would love to share my willowhouse website with you as well as my facebook and twitter sites. I have a new recipe that I want to share with all of you! It's a really easy pasta recipe that Rachel Ray taught me. I think you will really enjoy it especially for lunch...its easy peasy!
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil plus 2 tablespoons, divided
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped garlic
5 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
1 pound penne pasta
1/2 cup shredded basil
Freshly ground black pepper
3/4 pound fresh salted mozzarella, sliced or cubed
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
Put a large pot of salted water on for the pasta. Meanwhile, prepare your sauce. In a large skillet, heat 1/4 cup of the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook until just fragrant, about 1 minute or less. Add the tomatoes and cook them for 3 to 5 minutes, just until they begin to release some of their juice.
Serve the pasta in bowls, equally distribute the fresh mozzarella and grated Parmesan between the bowls. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the bowls of pasta and serve immediately.
