So, apparently, I really like blogging, so I guess I'm back. Here are some terribly taken photos as they were taken inside with terrible lighting and I had to make do with what RAW could give me. Paired a chambray shirt with a sweater I've had for a while, so it was all nice and comfy. I love the fact that chambry looks exactly like denim, because in all honesty, I hate denim. It's so restrictive, but I wish I could bleach the material to create an ombre gradient, but the bleach would just eat away at the chambray. I only own one denim jacket, and it's already a white-ish blue.
Plus, I finally paired them with the oxford shoes I bought that were such a steal, and the soles are red, so win-win.
This post is so rightfully named 'pasta weekend' due to the fact that not only did I cook pasta Friday night, and ate two servings, but we ended up going to Amerigo's, and I ordered more pasta. Plus, tonight, I ended up heating up the pasta I made on Friday and having it for dinner. So right now, I'm just filled with carbs and loving it.
But I'll probably hate myself tomorrow, because I'm still full.
So turns out, after I heated up the pasta, it was really nice and people kept commenting on how good it smelled, so I might as well put the recipe up here, and this is perfect for everyone since it's vegetarian, and anyone who's allergic to gluten can switch to gluten-free pasta! This recipe serves up to 6-8 people, so beware if you're just cooking for yourself. Luckily, Gabriel hates cooking for himself, so I guess this will feed him throughout the week, if he's willing to eat week old pasta.
14 oz of green beans, chopped, as small as you want, but I just bought a frozen bag and snapped those in half
1 lb of linguine
Pesto (to be honest, I have no idea how much. We bought the one in a small jar, about the size of baby food, and I just bought half in as I didn't want to use the whole bottle on my first try)
Grounded black pepper
1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Salt it, put green beans in. It depends on how hard you want your beans, I like them really tender, so I had them sitting in boiling water for almost 15-20 minutes. Keep the fire on small to medium and put the top on, and just let them sit.
2. Boil a large pot of water, salt it, put in 1 lb of linguine.
3. While the linguine is boiling, clean two large potatoes, skin them, and cut them into cubes.
4. After the linguine is tender, pour in the potatoes, and let both boil for 10 minutes. You can take a piece of potato out and see how well it slices to check if it's tender. Turn off the fire and pour out the water.
5. Put in the pesto! You pretty much put in as much as you like, depends on your taste. I put half a jar in, it wasn't really enough, but I also added some tomato sauce for flavor.
6. Pour in the green beans. Toss the pasta so everything is mixed.
7. I put in three pieces of sun-dried tomatoes, very little ground pepper, a little more salt, and a nice handful or two of parmesan cheese. Mix it so everything is well-mixed, and get ready to serve it!
