Amanda very kindly lent me her Mario Batali book Molto Italiano and I brought it home as important reading material. I made his dish Green Maltagliati with Oven-Dried Tomatoes, Basil, and Black Pepper Mascarpone after being inspired by its scandalous picture. Drying out the tomatoes took awhile, but it was pleasant since one could enjoy the feeling of having something cooking in the oven while doing practically no labor. The dish is meant for what appears to be (from the photo) insanely delicious fresh flat and wide pasta, but making pasta from scratch was not happening. So I bought some 'fresh' linguine from the supermarket. Whatevs! My mother thought the dish was divine.

Other than the long (easy) drying process, making this dish was a snap. I served it with:
Roasted Asparagus
Warm Beet Salad
My parents loved both of these very much, and I think it's fair to say that my mother is officially a Warm Beet Salad fanatic.
