Veggie Thurs : Broccoli and Cherry Tomatoes in Pene

>> June 25, 2010

One of the rules in this shack, we reserve 1 day in a week free from meat. For veggie Thursday, we had broccoli and cherry tomatoes in pene pasta.

- Pene pasta (boil good for 2)
- Broccoli flowers
- Cherry tomatoes, cut in half
- Fresh finely chopped parsley
- Chili powder
- 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic
- 1 tbsp. butter
- salt and pepper to taste

1. Boil Pene pasta in a pot of water with oil and salt until al dente. Drain, put it in a big bowl and set aside.
2. Chop broccoli flowers. Plunge it in a boiling pot of water for about a minute. Be careful not to over cook. Drain and wash it with cold water, and drain it again. Set aside.
3. Heat pan with a little bit of oil. Add the butter and sautee the garlic until golden brown.
4. Add broccoli, then cherry tomatoes and stir fry. Sprinkle the chili powder, salt and pepper.
5. Toss the vegetable together with the pene pasta you have set aside. Sprinkle fresh parsley and mix well. Add more salt and pepper until you get the flavor you prefer.

Smakelijk eeten!

I work and live at night time. I am a person deprived of natural light. I rarely cook in the morning as I'm almost always asleep, else busy with house chores. As much as I love natural light in my photography, I'm afraid I don't usually have that luxury, unless I sacrifice my sleep, or make an effort to stay up longer during the day to do a cooking + photo session. So I depend on my flash, and sometimes, available light from my fluorescent bulbs. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats the natural light, I am, so far, satisfied with my shots using my flash that I learned to love.

I always look forward to the weekends for some sunlight.
