Practically Perfect Parmesan Pasta

Oigabee.
I can no longer
retreat
to holiday cliche
*
‘Tis the season
Merry Misteltoeing
and
other such
seasonal
greeting
*
Packed away
with ornaments
and LED lights
until
next year.
*
What then
to do?
to say?
to eat?
*
A plenty.
*
For starters,
try this
blissful pasta.
Arriving
just in time
for the season
before
resolution season.
*
A year without sugar?
Can I do it for my figure?
(Nahhh.)

Practically Perfect
Parmesan Pasta
Let the little ones eat mac & cheese. This parmesan pasta is definitively grown up, and gloriously so. You won’t want to share. Plus…it’s simple enough to whip up a bowl for yourself, and leave the cheesy elbows to the toddlers.
*
1/2 c. fresh parmesan, finely crumbled
1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 c. kalamata olives
1 T. garlic
2 t. fresh rosemary
~or 1 tsp. dried rosemary~
Salt & Pepper to taste
Mix all together and allow to marinate in fridge overnight.
Serve over cooked pasta.

One last Christmas Cliche
{ne’er overused and ever delighted in}
Peace. Love. Joy.

How was yours?

    Yum love this recipe – I make something very similar but I toss in some shrimp and it is off the charts good.
    Christmas was wonderful anytime you have family and friends around a table filled with great food and wine that is a perfect recipe for an incredible night.

    Happy Holidays!!

    Maybe worth a trial to see what the impact is of addnig this in for a week or two?We have been sprinkling a tiny bit of parmesan on our eggs in the morning and it doesn’t seem to hurt
