Noodles and a simple sauce-there is nothing in the world I’d rather eat. This is a fifteen minute meal that is unlike others-it’s made of fresh, healthy ingredients and it tastes heavenly. It’s a dish fit for any Goddess, Siren, or Nymph and you’ll be the hero of your household when you serve this up for dinner.
First, toss a few fresh ingredients into the bowl of your food processor.
Here we have about 20 large fresh basil leaves, 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, 2 Tbs of pine nuts, 2 Tbs olive oil, a clove of fresh garlic, 2 Tbs Greek yogurt, 1 Tbs mayonnaise made with olive oil, 2 generous pinches of sugar.
Just whir up that pretty stuff and you’ll get this beautiful green slurry.
Cook a pound of linguine in salted water. Drain the noodles. Add them back to the pot and add 2 Tbs of butter and a Tbs or two of olive oil. Add the green goddess slurry to the buttered noodles and stir. You don’t need to turn the heat back on because the hot noodles will warm the delicate sauce.
Yes, that is what I’m talking about.
I like to serve this with what I call Calypso Salad. You just take some fresh tomatoes, cut them into wedges, douse them with a little olive oil and salt and pepper, and there you have it.
This pasta is so pretty that I felt compelled to just keep snapping photos of it.
Sheesh that’s gorgeous.
It doesn’t get any simpler to serve dinner on a beautiful summer evening than that. Let me know what you think, fellow Goddesses!
