At home we've had amazing pulled pork, smoked turkey, the best smoked salmon (thanks Dad) and countless asian dishes.
In restaurants....well of course there was The Ritz and Maison Boulud (we are still talking about that meal), new BBQ joints in parking lots and in Verdun (Blackstrap BBQ on Wellington)
But one of my best meals in 2012 was because of the food and because of the company!
This is baked tomato pasta.
It is a recipe from my grandma Granmimi.
All I know is that you have onions,garlic,tomatoes,cheese (ricotta I thik), long macaroni and bread crumbs.
I'm not too sure about the recipe but it is delicious.
This is filling, delicious depression cooking.
If you ask my Dad for the recipe; he will tell you this: You take an onion....all his recipes start like this....
some days he will call me just to give a recipe!
Now long macaroni is very hard to find, so my Dad is on the hunt!
I found some Greek ones today; they are used for Pasticcio (Greek baked pasta).
Thank you for the love Dad!
Here's hoping to a lot of baked pasta on Fridays in 2013
