what's for dinner?

Have I mentioned how much I love Mark Bittman?  Seriously, the man is a genius (even the title of his weekly column in the NY Times food section has me smitten).  I clipped this recipe Wednesday and put it together tonight with a half a bag of pasta in my cupboard and a bit of chicken left from last night.  I used brown button mushrooms and varied from the recipe a bit by using  cooked chicken from last night's roast and adding 1/3 of a cup of grated Parmigiano Reggiano at the same time.  To say that it was fabulous would be an understatement....the umami level of this dish is sure to make it a staple in our household.

ps:    still to chilly to paint and I have lots to update you on monday...

pps:  you can find the Martelli Pasta for less at a local market but i love Zingerman's  descriptions (have i never mentioned them is that possible?) and look forward to visiting everytime we are in Michigan to stock up on a few key ingredients, fresh bagels and cheese (ahem...i've been known to spend 40 minutes at the cheese counter).
