With the marathon coming up in November I figured I better start carb loading now since I am not training nor am I going to run even a little bit and my pasta contributions will be my only effort.
For those that have gluten and wheat issues I sincerely feel for you since you cannot nor will not ever enjoy the luxuriousness that is pasta. There are gluten free and wheat free versions that I have not tried so perhaps my previous statement is biased and uninformed - yet where would I be if it were not for my bias and my lack of information. You might recall the octopus? Well it has been on the menu for a little longer than I let on. Fettucini with octopus and black pepper is a little lesson in tasty.
The star of this pasta post perhaps is pasta with pesto - perfect. There is not one single thing wrong with this dish. The guanciale was rendered perfectly, the arugula pesto was the perfect consistency, the pasta was perfectly al dente, the pecorino had the perfect tangy bite and the perfect egg yolk made it all so perfect. The only thing imperfect is that I cant share it with everyone.
