Last night Charlie and I made Jamie Oliver's Wonky Summer Pasta. We got fresh pasta from Borgatti's ravioli shop on 187th St. and put the meal together really quickly in about 10 minutes. The light sauce called for 3 egg yolks, the zest and juice of two lemons, a handful of fresh basil, 125g grated parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and olive oil. The fresh pasta was still soft from when Charlie bought it earlier in the day so it only took about 5 minutes to cook through. Then the pasta got tossed together with the egg, lemon, cheese, basil and oil combination, and it was done. The first thing both of us tasted was lemon, and we later agreed that perhaps next time we would use the juice of only one lemon instead of both. However, the pasta was delicious and light, and perfect for a summer day as Jamie intended it. Wonky Summer Pasta was a quick and easy recipe that I would definitely make again.
