For those of you God fearing practitioners of Catholic Lenten Disciplines, we’ve made you a fantastic
Tagliatelle alla Pescatore
(-but for the heathens, we’ve made you
a decadent, Lasagna Bolognese)
Well,…. you sure picked a fine time for your Religious Refusal of Carnality,
-I mean, um,…why would you want that lasagna anyway, right?
The Pescatore is laden with house-cured salmon, anchovies, clams, pacific rockfish and just a touch of spice and fresh herbs,
-it is all the flavors of the Italian southern coasts, just begging for a glass of white wine and a spot in the sun,
(you’re not abstaining from sun too are you?)
I asure you, you’ve made the right choice,
The Lasagna Bolognese is still baking, deep in the fires of hell, so here is an accurate description:
Nine sinfully tender sheets of pasta,
Four creamy seductive layers of béchamel,
alternating with four layers of rich, totally un-necessarily indulgent layers of ragu bolognese.
that’s like 17 layers of sin right there!
Yep, you got an easy decision ahead of you. No problem.
-or you could just go all pagan-herbal-naturopath,
and just get the Ravioli, filled with locally foraged nettles and ricotta, and tossed with Burro e Pomadori
-but that would be the easy way out, don’tcha think?
