Toolset Lunch

So today’s lunch was inspired by OTGS’ Toolset: a simple Pasta e Fagioli

That’s the Italian cuisine for you: simple ingredients that make for a great dish. And we love having all the tools and ingredients at our fingertips, don’t we!

I picked 70gr of my favorite pasta from the cupboard,  put that in salted boiling water for 8 minutes. Drained the water and added a couple of tablespoons of Ragù we made on Monday. Then a couple of tablespoons of baked beans (also prepared in batch last week). Stir for 5 minutes to get the right temperature, and voilà!

Honestly, how hard can it be to make a good meal and enjoy it. All in under 20 minutes. And I had the time to clean the dishes and write this blog too!

Yeap, none other than that mouth watering recipe that Primo cooked for the Big Night! With some googling we were able to retrieve the recipe with exact details. Turns out it was an old recipe in the Tucci family (Stanley Tucci played Secondo in the movie) and they made a book that sold millions of copies ( Cucina & Famiglia look it up )

Anyway, here’s our Timpáno! in preparation

Add meatballs…
