On Sunday SP made fresh pasta from scratch using the pasta maker we got as a wedding gift. Sadly, we've only used that thing twice in our 4 years of marriage. It's relatively easy to make fresh pasta, but as SP found out this weekend, it's also time consuming. He made most of the dough into thin spaghetti:
... that we had with marinara sauce for dinner last night. The pasta was tasty, but I ruined the sauce. SP asked me to chop veggies for the sauce while he finished up the pasta and I used way too much celery. My parents got organic celery as part of the veggie box this weekend and I put two large ribs (including the leafy greens) into the sauce. Way, way, way too much celery flavor.
We also had a huge salad to use up the rest of the lettuces we got last week:
... as well as chopped bacon, hardboiled eggs, red pepper, Spanish olives, scallions, carrots, and mushroom stems. I had mine with creamy Caesar and it was fantastic.
