I was watching the Food Network last weekend, and I forced myself to sit through an episode of Giada at Home or whatever her dumb show is called.
If I haven’t already mentioned this a million times, I kind of hate Giada de Laurentiis. But I know good food when I see it. I just have to put the show on mute and cover the top half of the TV with a blanket so I don’t have to look at her dumb facial expressions. Or hear her dumb voice. (I’m mean, I’ll stop.)
Giada did an episode with spicy dishes and I was intrigued by a particular ravioli recipe because it 1) required practically no work, and 2) was spicy. When a recipe only has about 3 steps and less than 10 ingredients in it, I worry that it may turn out bland.
Not the case.
The pasta was really good, and the longest part of the process was waiting for 3 quarts of water to boil to cook a pound of ravioli. And during that time I just played on the Internet so it wasn’t work at all!
I highly recommend the recipe. Touche, Giada. Touche.
