Are you hungry? Well I sure am. Hamtackle brought me a wonderful gift from his recent trip to Italy. A bag a Gourmet Italian Pasta! A very interesting variety..... Fiordigusto!
The Italians have so many different shapes and varieties of pasta, but I have never tried this one before. I've decided to cook it up with some turkey meatballs and a gourmet jar of white sauce.
First I'll get them balls goin'. I mixed my ground turkey with bread crumbs, an egg, garlic, Parmesan and pepper. They should be zesty and delicious! Hmmmm 20 minutes at 350 should do the trick.
Now that the balls are warming up, I'll throw the pasta into the boiling water.
Ooooh. Just look at it bubble. 10 minutes until pasta perfection.
Well, it's been 10 minutes, let's take a look. Ah.... The pasta is tender and looks delicious and such and interesting shape. I don't know what it is about this pasta but I am ravenous!
Balls are done!
Gently place the balls in your hand and put them in the pot with the drained pasta.
I'm too excited! I can't do this slowly, I need to get a big handful.
Did someone say white sauce!?
Fuck yeah! Cream up them balls! This pasta is going to be great.
You gotta mix thoroughly. Make sure to get everything coated with that hot white sauce.
Would you look at that? A culinary masterpiece.
Whoops! I almost gagged on that last mouthful. I was a bit too forceful getting it into my mouth.
Well, that was simply delicious. I don't know what it was about this pasta but I suddenly feel like a new me! It's like I've been suppressing something for years and somehow I just confronted it through pasta. I can't put my finger on it.... Oh well, I'll ask my wife what she thinks it means when she gets home. Thanks Hamtackle for the delicious gift!
