Pardon the delay...

...but it's too hot to cook.  Hoping to be inspired this week by something that doesn't need to be cooked and can/will refresh me.

Will be back when that happens (or if we go back to the lovely weather we had before the heat wave).

Chow for now!  :)

  1. Have you made no knife pasta? So good and summery and easy and NO CUTTING - only one pot and you can make the sauce ahead of time... As seen on Martha Stewart:


    Serves 4.

    * 1 pound pasta
    * Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    * 4 medium tomatoes (about 2 pounds), cored and torn into 3/4-inch pieces
    * 1/2 cup coarsely torn basil leaves, plus more for garnish
    * 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    * 3 tablespoons coarsely torn oregano leaves
    * 4 medium cloves garlic, smashed
    * 1/2 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
    * 1/4 pound fresh mozzarella, torn into 1/2-inch pieces (optional)


    1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, according to package directions.
    2. While pasta is cooking, in a large bowl, combine tomatoes, basil, olive oil, oregano, garlic, and red-pepper flakes; season with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature up to 8 hours.
    3. Drain spaghetti in a colander and add to tomato mixture. Add mozzarella and toss to combine. Garnish with basil and serve immediately.
