Mindful : August 2017
INFO 24 mindful June 2017 Pasta is pure alchemy. You take two ingredi- ents—eggs and flour—and mix and knead and roll them together, only to wind up with something incomparable to any other food on earth: chewy and tender, hearty and deli- cate, delightfully springy and just the right amount of silky. It is the quintes- sence of a humble family meal and of a world-class culinary display, yet in both settings its quality rests in its simplicity. For example, take a classic Southern Italian dish: aglio e olio, which translates as “garlic and oil.” This simple pasta calls for only a few ingredients, yet the result can be almost other worldly. TRY THIS Cook some spaghetti in heavily salted water until a bit firmer than al dente, then reserve about half a cup of the cooking water. In the meantime, gently sauté a few cloves of minced garlic, along with a sprinkling of chili flakes, in a generous glug of olive oil. Cook the garlic until it’s translucent but not browned. Toss in the pasta and reserved water and cook, stirring frequently, until each strand of pasta is coated in the sauce and the pasta is tender. Throw on some grated Parmigiano- Reggiano, salt, black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Dress it up with a bit of parsley if you want togoallout.● The Luxury of Simplicity By Claire Ciel Zimmerman Claire Ciel Zimmerman is Mindful’s Deputy Editor and Eater-in-Chief. Pasta consists mostly of starch, but both fresh and dried varieties also contain some fiber and protein. Plus, ingredients commonly served with pasta, like olive oil, herbs, cheese, and garlic, can add a boost of nutrition, resulting in a wholesome dish. 24 mindful August 2017 LIVING | mindful eating PHOTOGRAPHBYGETTYIMAGES/LAURIPATTERSON
