The More Cheese the Merrier!

Tonight I'm putting leftovers to work again. No recipe really. No cookbook crossed off the list as part of the cooking challenge.

That's okay. I'll pour over one or more of them later tonight and plot the next effort to whittle down the list.

Anyhow, tonight was pretty simple. Leftover meat spaghetti sauce. Leftover ricotta. Boil some rigatoni. Mix with the sauce, ricotta and an extra can of Hunt's Diced Tomatoes. Add some dobs of the ricotta. Pour in a greased pan. And then add mozzarella.

Lots of mozzarella.

And I mean LOTS. No holds barred lots. Half the block of cheese lots. Sometimes even the whole darned block of cheese lots.

Because more cheese is better.

's all there is to it, really.

I justify my consumption of huge quantities of cheese by reminding myself that osteoporosis is a terrible, awful disease and the calcium in cheese will save me.

Anyhow, dinner was good. Ricotta mixed in. Mozzarella melted on top. Parmesan sprinkled on it before serving.


It was even furball approved. She must like cheese too.

A good story

GK Chesterton: “The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”

Voila: This book is a poetic view of 30 of the best loved French cheeses with an additional two odes to cheese. Recipes, wine pairing, three short stories and an educational section complete the book.

From a hectic life in New York City to the peace and glories of the French countryside lead me to be the co-founder of Ten years later with the words of Pierre Androuet hammering on my brain:

“Cheese is the soul of the soil. It is the purest and most romantic link between humans and the earth.”

I took pen and paper; many reams later with the midnight oil burning Tasting to Eternity was born and self published.

I believe cheese and wine lovers should be told about this publication.
