I hope you’ve been enjoying “National Noodle Month” with me. (What a great excuse to cook pasta and invent new recipes!)beach party. (Firepit, music, food, wine, fun!)
And in the wine-with-food department, as always, I’ve been sharing my pairings (some of them daring!) of interesting wines with you.
(BTW, do you have your free copy of “Rosina’s 5 Non-Rules of Pairing Wine With Food“ yet?

I’ve concocted one last “National Noodle Month” recipe to share with you. You’ll have it ready to go before the noodles are done cooking!
FARFALLE WITH ASPARAGUS, ANCHOVIES AND WHITE BEANS
1 lb. farfalle (or other textured, medium-size pasta):
1 lb. asparagus, washed
1/2 cup olive oil
1 can (~16 oz.) cannellini (or other white) beans
1 to 2 cans (~2 oz. each) anchovies
Salt and pepper to taste
Snap off tough stem ends of asparagus and cut into bite-size lengths. Over medium-high heat, sauté in half the olive oil until just crisp-tender. Season to taste.
Meanwhile, warm the beans in a separate pan.
Cook pasta until just al dente, drain, and transfer to a bowl. Stir in remaining olive oil and season to taste.
Divide pasta into individual bowls (or use a large serving platter). Top each portion with asparagus, then beans (with some of their liquid), then a few anchovies, with their oil. Done ~ and delicious!!!
I enjoyed mine with a simple Italian rosé, but you could pour a medium-bodied white, a light red, or even a value-priced sparkler such as Italian prosecco or Spanish cava.
Meanwhile, I hear you asking: “But what about that eBook discount you mentioned?” Don’t worry ~ I haven’t forgotten!
I’m now offering my revised Drink Wine With Dinner® ~ An Introduction for just $7.99 (reduced from $9.99). (The “10 Wines ~ 10 Pasta Recipes” chapter alone is worth more than the price of admission.) 🙂
As always, my friends,
Cheers and happy tastings,
PS ~ Since good fun and great flavors are so much better when you share them, why not *Send This Link* to your wine-loving friends ~ so they can get in on all the goodies, too.
