This week for Thirty Minute Thursdays, cooking our way through Giuliano Hazan's Thirty Minute Pasta book with Glennis and whoever else wants to join us, I made Penne ai Porri, Zucchine e Peperoni (Penne with Leeks, Zucchini, and Peppers), on page 69.
Matt's entire plate was covered with this pasta, except where his grilled chicken took up space, and when he came up for air, there was not a bit of it left, he raved about how good this one is and definitely wants me to make it again. It was easy, pretty, and delicious...definitely a repeat.
The ingredient list: leeks, red bell pepper, zucchini, butter, salt, black pepper, cream, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and penne.
What am I going to do when my pasta loving son goes off to college? Here's the deal: this book's recipes are very easy to divide to make smaller portions, so that's where we are headed for the future...except, of course, when the kid comes home from college, then a full recipe will be in the works.
If you like the looks and sounds of it, buy the book as I am a believer in encouraging people to support the authors who put together these fabulous books by buying a copy, so you won't find the recipes posted from this book here. (Buy it, the recipes are easy, the ingredients are easy to locate, it's not pricey, and there are photos of almost all the recipes.)
