Fusilli Fanatics

The Chef: Katie

The Menu: So Monday, we had pasta and Tuesday we had rice. You know what that means for Wednesday? Rice pasta! Ms. Katie whipped up a nice, light rice pasta with sauteed spinach, peas, capers, and roasted almonds, which was perfect for our unseasonably warm day here today. She's quickly becoming completely fearless, first trying her hand at tofu scramble last week and then taking on artichokes today. The enormous 'chokes actually got divvied up; we didn't all get a single head-sized serving. With a crunchy salad and Judy's Breadsticks Lovestick slices, this meal was as good as it is gone.

The Goods: A word on recipes: there have been a few commentors (thanks for commenting!) who've asked for recipes for the meals shown here. Chances are, if there is a recipe, we'll tell you how to find it, as in the case of the Mac 'n' Cheese from way back in October which will be featured in our January+February issue. Most of the time, however, we just throw something together from what's on-hand in the kitchen, so there isn't a recipe to share. We hope you get inspired to make something equally off-the-cuff for your next meal!

And finally: what's a pirate's favorite vegetable? Arrrrrrtichokes

as much of a pasta fan as I am, I have yet to try rice-pasta noodles - they certainly look fabulous in this dish!! oh and that artichoke is quite a beaut!

haha, the joke at the end did make me chuckle :0D
