As we get older and consciously work to reduce our stress levels, I am always looking for ways to get the most out of life without expending a lot of energy to do so.
Take cooking as an example — I love good food with fresh ingredients. I love savoring a delectable meal, and there are times when I truly desire to make a really complex meal — you know the kind of meals that require a double boiler or Cream of Tartar (LOL). However, for those times that I want a quick and dirty meal, yet delicious and healthy, I am open to other ways without compromising on quality
Kweli Kitwana, a regular contributor to this blog shows us how to make good and simple pasta.
She says, “this is way too easy to make from scratch. With only three ingredients — a pinch of salt, flour and eggs — you can’t get easier than that.
Mix, roll out with a rolling pen and cut very, very thinly with a pizza cutter. Bring water to a boil (with a pinch of salt) and submerge pasta until al dente (cooked but slightly firm). You will find that this is the best tasting pasta ever!”
Kweli also makes her own tomato sauce. This truly is an example of This…I…Do…For…Me!
