Fresh vegetarian pasta

    Newer Older

    Our Sunday lunch.

    The recipe:
    Add fresh pasta to a pot of boiling water.

    Throw a sprinkle of pine nuts and almond flakes into a hot pan drizzled in extra virgin olive oil. Once they start to brown, add slices of roma tomatoes that have been quartered longways and some finely chopped contintental parsley. Keep it on a high heat and stir as necessary.

    The pasta will only take a few minutes, so drain, shake through a little olive oil and serve. Add a few leaves of rocket on top of the pasta to make a bed for the sauce, then add the sauce. Drizzle a bit more olive oil (or some of the pasta cooking water) for moisture and cover with parmesan to taste.

    Bloody lovely!

      Ha! Good question, Dylan. I'm not sure who's doing the cooking this year. I reckon we'll sort something out, though!

      Thanks, Jonas! The first Railscamp this year is over the weekend of June 20. See the website for details.

      I didn't know you were into Rails/Ruby? I'm pretty sure the current camp is sold out, but I might be able to hook you up with a ticket if you're interested. Let me know!

      I got the Pick Axe book laying under my coffee table, but haven't really gotten into Ruby yet. Did Python at uni and loved it, and share your view on cross pollination between developer communities.

      Ant now that Microsoft is bringing Python and Ruby to the .NET platform (including support for Silverlight) it's even more interesting to learn about the dynamic programming languages… But no, I'm not really into Ruby or Rails, just curious ;)

      Any other user gruops / events I should know of? I have a good overview of the .NET community, but always interested in learning new ideas.

      PS: Should we move this developer community talk from this Flickr food comment section to say Twitter? :)

      You don't have to be crazy into it. Railscamp is more fun and willing to learn. And now that IronRuby can run Rails there might be some really interesting stuff in there for you :)

      You've just missed the monthly Melbourne Ruby/Rails meetup - it was on Wednesday night. The next one will actually be after Railscamp on the 26th of June. That'd be a great one to go to as there will be a bunch of guys back and talking about Railsconf (on in Portland, Oregon, right now) and Railscamp as well.

      You can find out more about local Rails and/or Ruby meetups at the RORO site.

      Another great local meetup for quality web development is the Web Standards Group. The local Melbourne meetings rock (I went to one while I was down the other week) so you could get along to those to meet some other folks interested in pushing best practice development.

      And if you want to know anything else, you can always contact me! :)
