Ok, so my back tooth (that broke at a wedding) now has a temporary crown–which I don’t trust–so I will eat only soft things until I get the permanent one. ( Sheesh. This could get old quick)…Having said that, could there be anything more delish than eggplant parmesan, when needing to eat soft, soothing things?
This was din-din two nights ago…
Of course, I thought there could be NOTHING as soothing as eggplant parmesan until last night, when we had …
Wild mushroom stuffed agnolotti, by Buitoni (a great product).
First, I sweated the leeks in melted butter on the stove under a lid made of parchment.
This is to keep the condensation extremely flavorful–which will drop back down and into the leeks.
Then, I added leftover cooked fresh green peas that I served the night before (with the eggplant parmesan).
Then came some delicious chicken stock (thawed from the freezer) and the shaved black truffle…
Jon bought me a truffle on Arthur Avenue for an amazingly low price!
I brought the whole lot to a simmer, then seasoned with salt and pepper. Then added the cooked agnolotti.
Just to remind you of what we ate.
So, I figure–this could be kind of fun–having to eat soft things (for a while…)
Oh baby–Now, THIS is the best. (Stay tuned for my meatball story.)
