i only tried it once and failed.... they turned into some form of potato pancake....
But I like pesto with them (basil queens rule!) or fresh sage sizzled up in some butter.... a little s&p.
I'd try a cream sauce but that sounds REALLY thick to me and can wait til winter when I have no fresh herbs.

Is everyone on a starvation diet tonight???

The first ones I made (out of a package) were kinda chewy and sticky. I'm not sure what the texture should be like. But I boiled per instructions, drained, then sauted with butter, garlic.... can't remember what else, but I was not real crazy about it. DH liked them surprisingly. I'm like you, cream sauce seems to heavy to me, or even the tomato based sauce seems a bit much, but maybe that is the way to go. I got some vodka sauce I may try on mine.

A first for me: Fish balls! Got some at the Asian Supermarket, and we are making them with some Chinese greens and Basmati rice.

This Supermarket has the most astounding fish market I have ever seen! Want conch? Frog? Snails? 14 varieties of fresh fish, cut to your specs free? wow.

Came across a package of short ribs in the freezer, so I dredged them in seasoned flour then browned them well on all sides in some olive oil. Tossed a bunch of onions, carrots and celery into the (big) crock-pot and added the ribs. Put in lots of minced garlic for good measure, along with some bay leaves. Poured beef broth and red wine over it all. We'll see what turns out. Can't be too bad. I have a bottle of Killian's Irish Red left from St. Patrick's Day so it's chilling to go along with.

Buck really enjoyed short ribs and Killian's. This one's for him.
