isolation haiku... with pasta
the long red curtain
pouring down the yellow wall outside
as I am to you
But the inherent isolation of modern individuals is no reason not to enjoy yourself! On this fair night, for example, I made...
This Pasta I Have Shored Against My Ruins
1 eggplant, peeled, julienned into fat worms, and married with bonnes herbes, pepper, salt, and a pinch of nutmeg for half an hour.
10 brown mushrooms, sliced
3 tbs. each dark mushroom broth and olive oil
Sautee all that until the eggplant is cooked to your taste.
500 g. dry linguine (1 package or recipe's worth)
200 g. fresh pesto (about 1/2 cup)
100 g. asiago cheese, grated (a large handful)
Cook the pasta and toss with the cheese and pesto first, then toss with the eggplant. Serve with more asiago, bruschetta, and sauvignon blanc, and then good gelato. But I forgot the gelato.
Without ice cream, there would be darkness and chaos. -Don Kardong
