good to have you back sarah. how's your little doll doing?
she's beautiful in your avatar.

i had pretty bad italian take out tonight, from a diner in the city. it was just sausages parm with a side of spaghetti, but the sauce had too much in the way of herbs to the point you couldn't taste the tomatoes. some kind of weird greek version of sugo. and the sausages were cheap, lots of filler, meat ground too fine, overcooked and dry.

oh well, they still have great burgers and greek food.

I'm being taken out tonight. Yay! And I've chosen the place, too. Double yay! They specialise in things cooked "a la brasa". So it's char-grilled vegetables (there'll be asparagus in the mix, Ishbel) to start and then a juicy steak. Looking forward to it already.

GB posted a recipe on here which I'm sure is good. I don't have a written recipe that I follow so his would be a good place to start.

http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...ht=penne+vodka

What I do is crush half the tomatoes and then dice the other half so you get the contrast in textures. I also add fresh thyme because I like the flavor of thyme and tomato. For the zucchini, just add it when the sauce is simmering. The zucchini should take about 5-6 minutes to cook, depending on the texture you want. I like the zucchini al dente, not completely soft. When you serve it, just drizzle your highest quality extra virgin olive oil over the pasta.

There are a couple of recipes in a thread on the Ethnic forum, Zarah. The one I posted was given to me by a vegetarian friend who, when I checked with her, told me that she had received it in a Vegetarian Society newsletter.

I can tell you that 'her' version is very tasty!
