It's mid-December, so all our garden herbs are dead except mint and parsley...so I made pasta with mint and parsley. I do what I can to feel alive during the winter.
Cook very slowly in a big pan until light gold:
- 3 or more cloves garlic, sliced
- Several T olive oil
- some vermouth
- a can of diced tomatoes
- red chile flakes
- 1/3 cup ricotta
- a handful of chopped fresh mint
- a handful of chopped fresh parsley
- lots of pepper
Don't put on as much Parmesan cheese as Lawson did above.
