#1: Pasta for a Blistering Hot Day!

Posted on 2006-07-16 10:39:21 by Mike - Still Learning

Summer Avocado Pasta
My wife just made the most fabulous pasta dish for me. It's ten o
clock at night and I never like to eat that late so I told her I would
just have a taste. I am now about to finish my second bowl ! This is
a simple recipe that anyone can make, but the complexity of flavors is
excellent. This is good for those who avoid meat as well.

These are the reasons I like this. We are experiencing 100 + degree
temperatures where we live right now. The last thing I like when
it's this hot is a big heavy meal with a thick sauce. This one is
nice and light for days like this. Her choice of a Linguine for the
pasta kept it light too. My wife and a few other great chefs have
opened my initially skeptical eyes to the world of and importance of
textures in cooking. Now I notice that much more in a dish. I noticed
right away with this one how well the cool juicy texture of the
tomatoes complimented the warmer more dry avacodo chunks. Just as you
are experiencing this combination of flavors and textures you hit a bit
of the crumbly Feta cheese, and lookout ! This combination just really
works.

Nice light pasta dish filled with great flavors and textures for a hot
summer day! I hope you enjoy this one as much as I have!


1 Package of a flavored pasta (I used Trader Joes Spinach & Chive
Linguine Pasta)
1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 14.5 oz. can of S&W Ready-Cut Tomatoes diced with roasted
garlic.
1-2 Diced Avocados
1 4 oz. Package Crumbled Traditional Feta Cheese



Cook pasta according to directions. When the pasta is done, drain and
put it back in the pot. Add the chopped tomatoes and balsamic vinegar
and heat. Plate the pasta and add the avocados and feta cheese on top.
If you desire, you can add some parmesan cheese on top as well.

I just added this to our website - bestpastarecipes.com, and I wanted
to post it here for you all too. We have it listed in the "MEATLESS
PASTA" section and the "EASY PASTA" section because it fits in both
categories. We've also recently added a few great deserts, as well as
a new section on "FUN PASTA FACTS" that is actually pretty interesting
too.

The next recipe I post for you all will be a really good shrimp pasta
recipe I used to make when I was going to school but I haven't made in
over 25 years. I'll have to practice it a time or two to make sure I
have it right. I'll be looking forward to sharing it, if I can
remember how I did it . . .

If it's blistering hot where you live try the above recipe with a nice
cold drink and enjoy ! ! !

I routinely use oil and vinegar on salad. I make my own herb vinegar. I
use organic white wine vinegar, poured over my choice of herbs in a bottle
(ususally rosemary and thyme) and stored for a few weeks:))

I use the best oil I can afford to go with it:))

When I went in Valdaosta, some weeks ago, I have bought a strange vinegar,
very very good and delicate (and very expensive too): the raspberry vinegar.
If you can find it, try; it is wonderful.

Yes! We have raspberry vinegar here, too. I'll put it on my shopping
list. Mmmmm! It's so good on salads, and I'd forgotten all about it!

I love raspberry vinegar too, but stopped buying the expensive bottled
stuff when I realized I could make my own by steeping a couple of bags
of Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger teabags overnight in plain old
white vinegar. Squeeze the teabags over the vinegar as you remove them
&amp; pour the vinegar into a sterile bottle or jar. Wonderful color &amp;
lovely raspberry flavor at a minimal cost. Not sure if Celestial
Seasonings is available in Italy, but if you can find it, you might
want to have a go at making your own.I use it all the time in
vinagrettes &amp; it always gets compliments. Made up a bunch a few years
ago and put in pretty bottles for friends at Christmas one year - big
hit.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! This is a new!!!!!!!!

What a grat idea!!!! Thank you! I think I will try!
I have thought to make vinegar with my plant of raspberry, but this year the
plant is sick, so I have no raspberry.
With your idea I will be able to have it.

No, I don't find Celestial tea, but I can find Tweenings raspberry tea and
also Infusions. Do you think infusion could work as well?
Then I want ask you a thing: How many tea bags do you use for 1 lt of
vinegar?

You guys are awesome! I had no idea that my wife's recipe would spark
an international discussion. What a great surprise it was to get home
from work and see what thoughts and ideas it sparked.

After a somewhat depressing day of listening to world events on the
news, I was pondering what kind of positive influence thousands of
people communicating about their love of great food and unique ways of
preparing that could have on the world. I can see some world leader
saying, &quot;NO WE'RE NOT INVADING THAT COUNTRY! - The nice lady who gave
us the raspberry vinager recipe lives there.&quot; I don't mean to appear
trite about serious world events and was not intending to open a
political thread. I just think it's cool that this group joins people
from all over the world, and from all walks of life, by a love that we
all have in common. And I can't help but think that even if all that
comes out of that is that I extend myself a little bit more for someone
because I traded recipes with one of their fellow countrymen, that the
world will be a little better off.
Thanks Again,

Great to hear from you! You sound much more chipper. I hope all is

We're just to the south of you in Orange County. It's usually pretty
nice here, but not this week. So we don't lose anyone to heatstroke,
we've had to wet down the baby, the dog, the horse across the street,
and ourselves! They said we might get a thunderstorm tomorrow so maybe
that will cool things a bit.

By the time I got back from work you had a great answer. I will ask my
wife if she has any other thoughts and if so I will get back to you.
The other's ideas sounded great! What a great idea in one of the later
posts to make up a batch of vinegar for inexpensive (but greatly
appreciated) gifts.

There was a Greek guy I used to work with. His mom used to make up
these mason jars for gifts. She would fill each one about half way up
with peeled cloves of Garlic, and then fill the jar the rest of the way
with extra-virgin olive oil. She said you can use this oil when you
make pasta, eggs, garlic bread, vegetables, or just about anything
else. She said to let it set for a couple of days before using it.
She was right. It was good on just about whatever you put it on !
