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 Spaghettini alle Erbe (Spaghettini with Fresh Herbs), on page 48.
My herb pots are growing crazy wild and full this year, they must love the heat! I was looking through the book for a simple pasta side dish that showcased the pasta without a lot of other ingredients and found this one with many fresh herbs, all of which were growing in pots on my deck: perfect!
The ingredient list: garlic, parsley, rosemary, thyme, salt, olive oil, basil, breadcrumbs, and spaghettini.
The recipe is easy and quick...just saute the garlic and breadcrumbs with olive oil in a pan, toss in the herbs, and when the pasta has cooked, toss it all together. It was a light side dish tasting of fresh herbs and toasty breadcrumbs. Definitely a repeat.
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.)
