This photo has been shrunken to protect us from what appears to be a very frightening creature near ready to devour us.
It was contrarily, a beguiling casserole: Pastitsio alle melanzane e ragù di frutta secca – taking of the pictures, not a forte. (Fortes, one day, hopefully, shall be uncovered!)
Here’s a lovely picture of that.
The sauce was outstanding – could be used, simply with pasta, on pizza or by the bowl-ful.
A simple preparation, as well, just three types of nuts, ground, tomatoes and soy sauce, a little sugar, a little vinegar.
A good bit was sampled as it stewed – simply to assess the spices… Certainly.
