primi piatti


this is mollie ahlstrand
she is the chief at trattoria mollie's in montecito california
ask opra or presidient obama about her and they will
tell you about her restaurant and her story

this picture is from amazon.coms feature of this new book
on cooking italian food her style
organic simple easy to cook fresh ingredients cooking that this
organicgreen doctor easily did

mollie cooked the meal for my sons wedding party as she is a
friend of my daughterinlaws family

her story and her book and her cooking are a special story thats
told in this book

read it and the words i can do it will be understood

she speaks at least 3 languages is a fireball in the kitchen and
in real life and is a successful business women

so from page 43 of her book it took this recipe and got all the
ingredients together-tomato sauce shallots garlic onions pepper flakes some salt
and olive oil including swiss chard the main ingredient

this large quantity of swiss chard i cut from my garden
swiss chard is a plant that keeps on giving
i plant it in my garden and it lasts sometimes up to 2 years
i plant them usually twice a year and keep several plants going all year
we use them in salads when the leaves are small and the larger leaves
are used in recipes like this or in greens cooked in the crockpot with
kale asian greens asian cabbage etc
probably one of the most proliferative and healthiest plants you can
put in your garden
cook this recipe and youll agree
the salad is mostly from our garden
lettuce spinach kale green onions
organically grown avocado form my surfing brotherinlaws orchard
and then the only unhealthy but delicious fried green tomato from
threadgills restaurant in austin

overall a quite tasty meal mostly from my winter garden

thanks mollie for this simple delicious italian meal
and the excellent cookbook
