Tomaten – Käse Spätzle (South German Tomato/Cheese Pasta)

>
>
Käse Spätzle  is tasty homemade pasta tossed with onion and Emmentaler cheese. A German version of mac and cheese you might say. Typically eaten in the alpine regions of Austria, Switzerland and Germany, as well as in other non-alpine South-German regions. (Especially in Baden Wuertemberg, the original home of spätzle).
In order to prepare Käse Spätzle, make the spätzle as usual but add some tomato paste and oregano for color and taste. After you cook and drain the spätzle, saute diced onions in butter until golden, add spaetzle, kosher salt and black pepper. Then layer the  spätzle in a bowl or platter with grated Emmentaler cheese and schmelze (butter sauted brown bread crumbs). Repeat once or twice, then sprinkle top with sliced chives.

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !

Hot Focaccia Sandwich With Prosciutto, Gorgonzola & Avocado

>
>
I was getting hungry at 1.00 am last night and did not feel like having just a boring packaged snack, so I put together this fabulous sandwich. The spiciness of the gorgonzola, the slight acidity and fruitiness of the guacamole and the distinctive taste of the prosciutto made for a great flavor experience, while the different textures of the crispy bread, the gooeyness of the half melted cheese, the crispness of the outside layer of the prosciutto and the soft, delicate inner layers of the ham made all of this into an absolute delicious winner 🙂

Bone-In Rib Eye, Naan With Gorgonzola, Tomato & Walnut

>

>
This  morning at work Gene and I were talking about steaks and how great a good steak would be for lunch. Well, don’t just talk about it, do it ! S0 I went to the market and bought two great bone-in rib eyes, 80 oz in total weight. After work, straight home and put these babies on the heat, seasoned with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Got fancy with the naan too. Instead of doing the more traditional thing and putting the gorgonzola on the steak, I put it together with walnuts, grape tomatoes, scallions and lot’s of black pepper , then baked them in the oven for about five minutes. This would have been a great meal just by itself, but together with the meat and all the juices the bread soaked up – unbeatable 🙂

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !

Gnocchi, Prosciutto, Asparagus & Parmigiano Reggiano

>
>
“Pretty”  is not usually the first thing that comes to my mind as far as food is concerned.
But looking at this dish, the thoughts were first : Pretty ! Then : Let’s eat right NOW !
Usually we saute the prosciutto lightly but in this case, it was so thinly sliced and delicate,
just adding it to the top of the dish seemed the right thing to do.
And yes, I just preferred the texture and taste this way. Good Stuff 🙂

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !
