Pasta with Garlic and Olive Oil Sauce (two ways)

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

1 pound pasta (angel hair or thin spaghetti)
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic chopped fine
1 hot red chili pepper chopped (more or less to taste)
sea salt to taste (fleur de sel)
2 tablespoons parsley coarsely chopped

Preparation:

The sauce can be served either cooked or uncooked with the pasta.

Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package.

Place the olive oil, garlic and hot pepper in a small saucepan over a
medium low heat. Cook and stir the sauce until the garlic just starts
to turn a pale color and remove from the heat.

Toss the cooked pasta with the oil in the saucepan turning it several
times. Sprinkle lightly with the fleur de sel (we like the crunchy
texture of this salt) and all of the parsley. Toss several more times
and serve immediately.

To serve the sauce uncooked, place all the ingredients in a warm
serving bowl except for salt and parsley. Add the cooked pasta and
toss several times to coat. Add the salt and parsley tossing several
more times before serving.

Options: Peeled fresh, raw and seeded tomatoes coarsely chopped and
chopped fresh basil leaf.

Grilled Swordfish Sicilian Style

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

4 swordfish steaks approximately 1/2 inch thick
salt to taste
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
fresh ground pepper to taste

Preparation:

Preheat the grill 10 to 15 minutes before cooking.

in a small bowl until the salt is dissolved. Add the oregano and blend
it in with the lemon juice.

Slowly add the olive oil blending it into the mixture. Add pepper to
taste and stir.

Place the swordfish steaks on the grill and cook for approximately 2
minutes per side or until the grill marks begin to show. Remove the
steaks to a warm platter. Pierce each steak with a fork in several
places so that they can better absorb the sauce.

swordfish steaks spreading it evenly with the spoon over each piece.
Serve immediately.

Roasted Asparagus

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

2 pounds medium sized asparagus
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
sea salt (fleur de sel) and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

While oven is heating rinse, trim and peel the asparagus snapping off
the woody ends and pat dry.

Place the asparagus in a baking dish that will hold them in a single
layer and drizzle with the olive oil. Lightly toss them so they all
become coated with the oil and bake for 15 minutes.

Move the asparagus around every 5 minutes so that they can cook more
evenly. During the last 5 minutes sprinkle the asparagus with salt and
pepper. Remove from the oven and serve immediately or allow them to
cool and serve at room temperature.
