|Big Daddy's Cooking with Attitude||
Linguini with Tomato, Olive and Scallion
Based on a recipe found in the Secret's of Fat Free Italian Cooking this reflects the light summer fare of northern Italy. After sitting for a while the flavors become more robust than one might imagine by simply looking at the ingredients.
Place first eight ingredients into a bowl and let sit at room temperature for an hour to allow the flavors to blend.
While the pasta is cooking warm a large pasta bowl (or any bowl large enough to hold all of the pasta) in the oven (200 degrees is the proper temperature for keeping foods warm). Place the sauce in a saucepan and gently bring it to a simmer.
When the pasta is cooked, drain well and transfer to the warm pasta bowl. Add
the sauce and toss well to coat thoroughly. Allow the pasta and sauce to
sit for 3-5 minutes, tossing occasionally, to allow the pasta to absorb some of
the sauce. Add Romano and salt and pepper and
toss again before serving.
Notes: If you wish to kick the flavor up a notch or two then use Big Daddy's Italian dressing instead of the fat free stuff. Shameful.
