Last Evening's Pasta
Laura told me that she would be working late and would, therefore, not be attending worship rehearsal with me at Harvest Christian Center. I told her I would begin the evening's meal and that she could tend to it when she arrived at our home. I peeled and minced a large head of garlic, sliced a dozen crimini mushrooms, diced six large Roma tomatoes, and sliced a quantity of specialty ham. I began this sautéing in a large sauté pan. I tore several large leaves of fresh basil and set this aside. When Laura arrived, she tended to the sauce. When it reached the proper consistency, she added the fresh basil and cooked half a package of Barilla Thick Spaghetti al dente. She drained and added the spaghetti to the sauce, stirred, and allowed it to sit for five minutes. We then enjoyed what can only be described as incredibly delicious. A small quantity remained following our gormandizing, and it followed Laura to Chico this morning for her lunch.
