Today happens to be our three-year wedding anniversary.
Three years! How is it possible that our wedding was three years ago?
We're happy to mark the occasion on the blog by writing about pasta, a subject near and dear to our hearts. Word of warning: Prepare to get hungry.
When we first read the September Bon Appetit, we were lusting after the pasta dishes. On the page, they're stunningly beautiful. And we melted upon seeing the Orechiette Carbonara with Charred Brussels Sprouts.
A (somewhat lengthy) sidenote about carbonara:
We'd always like carbonara perfectly fine, but then we caught an episode of Nigella Feasts called "Solitary Sensations." It is an epic 30 minutes of food television. In the episode, she makes carbonara, chocohotopots, a delicious pea puree and a "back from the bar" snack that will make you want to go out drinking just so you can come home and cook. Each dish looks amazing, but the carbonara is out of this world. We used to keep a recording of this episode on our DVR -- it was equivalent of a TV hug. But then our DVR went caput, and with it, the episode. Watch for this episode. You will thank us!
Back to the task at hand....
If you're a pasta fan, today's Cover to Cover dishes are not to be missed.
Enjoy -- and thank the chefs by leaving a comment!
