week 1. Wednesday: Get Humped
Wednesday is my midweek 'date' night. Halfway to the weekend, I just want to throw together a 20 minute dinner, open a bottle of wine and get cuddly.
This week is all about the ragu mama. This sauce was put on the stove last night, did an evening in the fridge to sort itself out and tonight it just needs to be heated and put over a bed of pasta.
The sauce was kept deliberately simple so that I can season it up tomorrow night and turn it into a goulash.
So I add extra flavours to the pasta; toss some steamed Brussels sprouts in some burnt butter, some garlic, chili and chopped parsley. Maybe a shaving of parmesan and freshly grated nutmeg.
Spoon some ragu over the top. Serve with some wine and oven-crunchy bread.
