Gail planned a yummy pasta dinner for tonight. As we went through our weekend drive-about, we found ourselves augmenting the plan with a new EVOO, a nice grating cheese, and a special loaf of bread. Regular pasta wouldn't do. So we went to Whole Foods and picked up a package of Severino pasta. The label called the shape Mafaldine, but that doesn't mean much. It looks like lasagna sheets where someone took out most of the flat part in the middle. Cool look, but the flavor was truly wonderful. This had all the fullness of homemade fresh pasta. It's a difficult flavor to describe, but imagine a little egg, a little bread, possibly a little mushroom. Everything was delicious, but the pasta was the clear star.
