I’m Back. With Food.

Hey blog-type friends! I haven’t posted in (more than) quite a while and I decided that really needed to change. Good thing Hannah is pretty rad- I have been a pretty awful blog partner.

I have been pretty busy at work, but the BIG bonus is that I get to cook a few times a week for her and her family. I wanted to share some of the favorites so far- starting with a SUPER easy pasta recipe.

Prosciutto, Garlic and Arugula Pasta:

Ingredients:

Angel hair pasta (I used 1/2 box for 2 people, with a small amount leftover)

6 oz. prosciutto

1/2 tbsp. minced garlic

1/4 cup Olive Oil

Juice from 1 lemon

Salt and pepper to taste- I use red pepper for a solid kick in the face

Arugula (if you so choose)

Favorite (bold) cheese

Directions:

Start by boiling the water

Chop up your prosciutto into small pieces

Combine garlic and olive oil in the pan for a couple of minutes.

Add chopped prosciutto to the pan and turn heat to low/simmer- stir frequently.

Drain the pasta after about 7 minutes.

As soon as the pasta is drained- add to the large pan with the olive oil and prosciutto. Stir until all the pasta is coated. If the pasta isn’t coated add more olive oil, or lemon juice.

You can chop up some tomatoes and throw those in there- otherwise, this is the time to stir in the arugula. Make sure the pan is over a very low heat. Red pepper flakes also give this dish the BEST kick.

Cheese- a potent, robust cheese is BEST! Asiago or Parmesan work beautifully. Shred that stuff on top and serve!! I added some grilled broccoli on the side.

And that’s it!! Enjoy 🙂
