The assignment this week was an easy and delicious pasta recipe. We all loved it and had seconds. I wish I could share the smell of the figs, raisins, pistachios and almonds simmering in butter - wow, amazing.
I did make one major change to the recipe. I couldn't put in all the butter. In fact, I only put in 2 out of the 12 tablespoons and augmented the rest with chicken broth. One thing I had trouble with was tossing in the Parmesan cheese. I wanted the pasta to be hot, but then the cheese got a little clumpy. Didn't matter though. It was great and I do think the leftovers will be good. I'll certainly make this again.
