As I jump back into cooking, I am so excited to see what is going on over at French Friday's with Dorie. This week's recipe is begger's linguine and it was fantastic!
The linguine is tossed with browned butter, pistachios, almonds, figs, and lots of Parmesan cheese. I omitted the raisins. Those that have read my blog in the past will understand why. It certainly was not on the healthy side with the amount of butter and Parmesan cheese included, but it tasted delicious and was super easy to throw together. I'm sure with a few modifications I could get this recipe to within more healthful standards, but I also wonder why I'd take the time to do that. Instead, I should just plan for this to be a 'heavy' meal and plan accordingly for the week! Dorie includes grated orange zest and I personally was not a fan of the zest. I'd omit it next time or perhaps try lemon zest, a zest I'm much more fond of.
