italian cooking lessons {#4}

One of our favorite pasta dishes is one that i didn’t even learn in Italy.  We learned this recipe from my mother-in-law (so correct us, Pam, if I have this wrong!). It’s so easy and so yummy!


Bow tie pasta

Myzithra Cheese

Olive oil

pepper/salt to taste.


cook pasta to directions.

grate cheese- {for 2 people i grated about 1 cup or half of the cheese that i bought that you can see in the picture up there.}

When pasta is done, drain, put in a bowl, add a Tbsp or so of olive oil, and then add cheese and salt and pepper to taste!

done. so easy!

I think the reason I like this is because the cheese doesn’t really melt, but it covers all the pasta and gives it a very unique, savory flavor.  Seriously one of our favorites!

We were on our nightly walk this evening talking about what to have for dinner. This sounded so good that we had to go get the ingredients right away! 🙂

One more week of the Picture a day! When I first started this, I thought there were only 40 days between the beginning of Lent and Easter. But- it was made known to me {i guess i should have counted the days first!}that those 40 days don’t count Sundays, and since I took pictures on Sundays, I’ll have 46 pictures! Except I have to admit… i may have missed a day or two so far. Doh! this every day thing is really hard! But here’s to hanging on strong for the next week!

I hope you all have a wonderful Holy Week. Happy Palm Sunday!  Let me know if you make some of my mother-in-law’s Myzithra Pasta!
