Food Quotes

"No therapy or drug known to modern medical science can rebuild tissue that has been damaged by disease or trauma. Food alone can accomplish this feat. It is for this reason that nutrition is an indispensable weapon against disease".
Dr. Bernard Jensen (1908-2001)

Pasta with Broccolini and Sausage

3 medium cloves garlic, quartered
3 tablespoons extra-virgin, cold-pressed olive oil
real sea salt

1 pound rigatoni, penne or ziti (brown rice pasta is good)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin, cold-pressed olive oil
1 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed and cut into 1-inch pieces
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 cups traditional bone stock (chicken) (get recipe here)
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 bunch broccolini or broccoli, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place 3 cloves garlic in the center of a small piece of aluminum foil lined with parchment paper. Fold up the edges to form sides. Drizzle with 3 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Fold foil and parchment over garlic to enclose. Place on a small baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until soft and golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions, until al dente; drain. Toss cooked pasta with roasted garlic and return to pot to keep warm. Heat the 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook, until no trace of pink remains, about 7 minutes. Add the slice garlic and cook for one minute. Add the stock and red pepper flakes and bring to a boil. Add the broccolini , cover and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in the butter, sun-dried tomatoes and Parmesan cheese and cook, uncovered, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Add pasta, salt and pepper. Stir to combine and let set for a few minutes to absorb some of the flavorful liquid. Makes 6 servings.
