    Default basil cream sauce pasta

    so, here's another i've had saved back for a while.
    Here's what you need:
    about 1 cup of whipping cream, some butter, basil pesto (or just basil leaves and garlic), salt, pepper, 1 tomato, mushroom, some meat (if you like) and an onion.

    first thing's first: knife skillz. On the street or in the kitchen, these are important because Knives will cut your fucking hands right off!
    A good first step is to pinch the knife with your thumb and index finger on the blade right after the handle. This should be around the knive's center of balance and it will also give you balance to keep the knife from turning sideways:

    the next part is to use your other hand to hold the food steady while you cut. You don't want it to slip and you don't want missing fingers, so curl them up so that only the knuckles are flat against the blade of the knife.

    using small movements slide the knife up and down. use your knuckle to gauge how wide to cut the food. Eventually you'll get quicker too.


    now for the main event: julliene all that stuff up, skinny is nice. Take the tomato and remove its skin and cut into cubes.**

    add a touch of butter to the pan and one whole chilli pepper. simmer but don't burn it, remove after the oil turns a little orange or darker. simmer onions, mushrooms. cook meat and then remove everything.

    on low heat melt some more butter and add your whipping cream. simmer but don't let it come to a boil. stir alot, if all else fails turn down heat more. reduce. It should be thick like a sauce.

    add the tomato, basil pesto, other ingredients and salt and pepper to taste. Toss in pasta and mix well. Serve and enjoy.



    **to de-skin a tomato, put it in boiling water for a couple o seconds, then put it in the freezer for like 2 mins to cool it. The skin should come right off.

    Ice Water works well. Do not forget to score the bottom of the tomato (with an "X") really makes it easy.

    I've never been sure about tomato and cream combos. I think I'd prefer this without the tomato and onion.

The sickness I was talking about was your propensity to kind of reach in and grasp on to something to define someone here. You harangue them about it and manipulate it in to conversations. You do that with every single poster here. You do this until they see things your way. The "correct way". It's vile.

    yeah the x forgot to mention it. Good point riddeck.

    cullion: yeah you can use the sauce for just about anything. Its kind of a basic, variations are all over the place.

    Along those lines, I made my own potato chips the other night.
