Easy Breezy Pasta Caprese
Thursday nights Doolia plays quartets with friends, so Dooley and Doolia try to make some of the quickie recipes from The Complete America's Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook. This week, Dooley was busy with a project elsewhere and got home at 6pm. He was tired, so Doolia volunteered to make the Pasta Caprese alone.
The dish calls for hot pasta, fresh diced tomatoes, fresh basil, fresh mozzerella cheese, and a simple sauce of olive oil, shallots, and lemon juice. The prep is exceptionally simple, and within 30 minutes, we were enjoying our delicately flavored dinner. And by 7:10, Doolia was on her way to play string quartets.
Dooley asserts that this is one of his top three favorite dishes from the cookbook. And he says that next time, he'll prepare it without my help. I'm looking forward this next step in our cooking journey.
