Welcome to DC Alice!

That sounds pretty good!

I don't know anything about Barrett's so I won't be much help in that department.

Hi there Mama
It is an interesting technique - cooking pasta like risotto. It makes the dish creamy and richer than if you boiled the pasta and tossed it with the veggies.
I want to try it with a tri-colored vegetable corkscrew pasta that I found in the Nature's Market place section of my local grocery. It has almost as much fiber as the whole wheat without that heavy taste and texture.
My only concern is the shape of the corkscrew pasta. I'm not sure the whole browning step would work so well with it. I guess I'll just have to give it a try and see what happens.
That's how I usually cook. It's mostly guesswork on my part.
That is one of the reasons I thought to join a forum like this one. Maybe take some of the guesswork out of it.

Hi Alice and welcome.
Do try to read and post if you can.
You'll learn much about everything under the sun.
I know nothing of your condition except that I googled it.
Is your profile updated?

Hello LEFSElover,
No unfortunately my profile isn't updated. With summer here, I have had precious little time for anything that is recreational for me. I work the night shift but have three kids. The two year old goes to daycare but the eight and ten year olds have to stay home with me, so as you can imagine I don't get much rest.
The fact that the girls at home are just that - girls, with both of them going through puberty (the 10 year old on time, the 8 year old is early) they mix about as well as oil and water. I spend much of the time keeping them from killing each other.
God I can't wait for school to start!

I do have some great recipes to share. I have found one that has now become a sort of signature dish. Itís main ingredients are Leeks, Pancetta and either Sea Scallops (when I can afford them) or usually I substitute Pork Tenderloin medallions. It cooks up very quickly and even the two year old likes it.

Right now Iím still at work so I have to go. Sorry I have been so absent lately. All of my Internet friends have been wondering if I fell off the planet recently. Nah, Iím just drowning in prepubescent estrogen! LOL
