My last night alone so big red meat is the order of the day. To top it off with something else Fern isn't keen on, Stroganoff on home made fettuccine. He's not big on cream sauce.
2/3 cup flour
Make a well in the flour and break the egg into it. Move the tines of a fork in circular motions in the egg, picking up more flour as you go. Form into a ball, it should rest for 30 minutes but I didn't have time so I started rolling it out. It should not be sticky. If it is dust more flour over it and kneed it a little. Get it rolled out and cut either with a pasta roller or rolling pin and knife.
Boil for 3-5 minutes, strain and put in the sauce.
2 tsp butter
1 clove garlic diced
1 tsp rice flour - just seeing if it thickens without pastiness on the tongue - seems to
2/3 cup whipping cream (cleaning out the fridge again)
1/4 cup grated parmesan
handful chopped fresh basil
Cook the garlic in the butter and add the salt, pepper and flour. Slowly add the cream and bring to a boil. Boil off some of the liquid to thicken the cream a bit. Add the parmesan and basil. Add the pasta, toss and serve.
The broccoli was done in the microwave and finished with salt, black pepper and butter.
Garlic, cream, fresh basil and rib steak. It's almost impossible to go wrong with those ingredients. It was rich and tasty. Just what I hoped for. Fern might even like this!
