Jenny Pooh's Lemon Pasta Sauce...A Variation
I have been craving lemons lately. I don't know if the dreary January weather has anything to do with it but the other night I just had to make Jenny's lemon pasta sauce. I had no fresh Rosemary, so I added a couple of cups of broccoli florets, a can of salmon, and some capers.
The flavour was good, but I must say that the broccoli was overcooked, and slightly bitter. I decided to add the broccoli to the boiling pasta for the last minute of cooking. I realize now that this was a mistake. If I made this again...and I think I will, I will blanch the broccoli in advance, shock it in ice water, and stir it in, while I am softening the garlic, before everything else goes back into the pot.
The P-Man enjoyed it...no surprise there...but I am curious to taste the dish again, with the broccoli bright green, and slightly al dente.
