How many times do you come home pooped, cranky and starved, only to peer into a half-empty fridge and wonder what in the world you can eat to make you feel a whole lot better fast?
“Fettuccine with Preserved Lemon and Roasted Garlic” will do the trick.
Especially if you keep a handy-dandy jar of home-made preserved lemons in your fridge at all times like me. Which you should.
Particularly if you grow your own little pot of rosemary. Which you ought — because it comes in so handy.
And most readily, if you keep a stash of already roasted garlic in your fridge or freezer. Which you need to promise yourself you’ll do, because you’ll use it for so many things, including the tastiest garlic bread on the fly.
The pasta recipe is from “The Homemade Kitchen: Recipes For Cooking With Pleasure” (Clarkson Potter), of which I received a review copy.
The cookbook is by Alana Chernila, a Massachusetts food writer and cooking teacher who blogs at EatingFromTheGroundUp.
