Last night we had Chicken Marsala with Lemon Broccoli, the meal we were supposed to have on Thursday. SP decided to experiment with fresh pasta so we also had a little of that as well.
I don't know what went wrong but the marsala sauce was spicy, almost as if I'd added red pepper flakes to the sauce. At first we thought it might have been an excess of freshly ground black pepper, but now I'm thinking I might have done a little cross contamination - the broccoli calls for red pepper flakes and I was using the same wooden spoon to make the sauce as I was for stirring the broccoli. It's the only explanation I can come up with.
Regardless of what happened I really didn't like the taste. It was nowhere near as good as the last time I made it, which was really disappointing since I'd been looking forward to it all day.
I also think I've ODed on broccoli. I love the stuff, but lately I haven't been happy with it no matter how I prepare it.
SP's pasta was good - nice and light - but it had no flavor. He thinks he needed to add more salt. I topped mine with some of the marsala sauce and SP made a quick marinara for himself.
