A simple but Delicious Supper

It’s a magical evening, the sky filled with hues of dark red and orange reflection against the evening sky as the sun sets over the sea.

While listening to the sound of  the waves as they break onto the shore below I begin to plan the evening meal, something nice and simple will do.

Pasta with sage and black pepper

About 6-8 fresh sage leaves

2 cloves of garlic

Knob of butter

Dash of olive oil

Creamy goats cheese of your choice, about a spoon full per person

Pasta of your choice

Boil a pan of hot water for the pasta, when it comes to the boil, throw in some salt and add the pasta, cook as per time specified on the packet.

In the mean time thinly slice the sage leaves, finely chop the garlic

In a pan that will be large enough to hold the cooked pasta, begin melting the butter with the olive oil, then add the garlic and sage and softly heat them through for about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.

Once the pasta is cooked, bring the sage and garlic back up to heat, add the pasta and toss together, add the goat’s cheese and toss again, sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and toss again.

Serve with a nice fresh salad and a crisp glass of white wine.

Note/tip: always reserve some of the water which the pasta was cooked in. If your finished pasta dish seems a little dry, add a spoon or two of pasta water to slacken the ingredients.

    Hello Kate,
    I’m a new visitor to your space.
    Mmmm, sounds like my kind of meal especially with the hot weather we’ve been having (I’m a fellow Capetonian)!
    You have a wonderful space, a good place to come to keep the grey matter ticking!
    Take care and keep cool this weekend (I gather we have more hot weather in store for us)

    A very nice starter Kate, with a main course of say a Beef Wellington medium rare and to wash it down, a very fine bottle of Chateau Margaux, 2,000 it was a exellent vintage.
