Talitha’s back home from a week of camp food. She missed me, she missed my cooking.
Tonight Pasta with Gremolata, meat sauce and fresh garden salad with thyme.
Gremolata is a traditional accompaniment to osso buco. But is delicious on Pasta. It is parsley, garlic, and lemon zest or lemon juice. A mortar and pestle is the best way to make the Gremolata. Put the parsley into the mortar first, Using scissors chop the parsley finely, add 3 or 4 cloves of garlic a good pinch of rock salt and crush with the pestle, add lemon juice.
Stirred through the pasta with a little olive oil, it is delicious you could eat it alone.
We picked another basket full of tomatoes. I am planning to cook Jamie Olivers Roast tomato soup for sunday lunch
