Cooking With Wine

...is so delicious!

Having four adults to feed with four different palates (the sense of taste) can be difficult sometimes.  Last night I decided to try something that hopefully would please everyone making meal time easier - for me.  I created an amazing pasta bar paired with a lovely white wine.  I began by testing the wine, this was to ensure the quality (wink wink).  I chopped, sipped, sliced, sipped and diced all different ingredients that I knew my family loved. The pasta was ready and cooked al dente (Al dente is a fancy term for pasta that's fully cooked, but not overly soft).  There was fresh pressed garlic (yummy), white wine, freshly grated Parmesan cheese and I even made my own cream sauce to complete the meal.  As everyone was seated and ready to eat I asked for their ingredient orders and began the process. 

Turn on skillet,
poured a little oil in skillet,
added a little fresh garlic
heat oil and garlic
toss chosen ingredients into oil, cooking to perfection (add a little cream sauce)
add enough pasta and cream sauce for one person
mix together and heat
serve in pasta bowl
clean skillet
and repeat

This is a wonderful meal pleasing everyone, especially the cook!  It's your turn!
