The New Penne? Trenne...
Leave it to Izzy to choose this unusual pasta from the bulk pasta bins at Murray's Cheese..Yes, bulk pasta, in interesting shapes and sizes. I have never come across bulk pasta before and I love the concept. Why? Because a pound is never quite enough to serve the three of us dinner and still have enough leftover for Izzy's lunch. In case you haven't heard, leftovers for lunch are key.
But back to the pasta. I simply sauced it with several cloves of minced garlic, 3/4 can of fire-roasted tomatoes, two tablespoons of black olive tapenade and a handful of basil chiffonade.
There was plenty to go around, even after a hard day's work on Izzy's new bed. Yesterday we all helped to paint it and it is partially assembled right now. More to come shortly.
