Here is another of my crime to Italian-style dish. Taste fresh and delicious (at least for me), suitable for vegetarians, and perfect for candle-light dinner.


Just like before, here I mixed it with non-Italian ingredients. As the filling for paccheri (you can also use the bigger canneloni), just put vegetables of your choice, chopped to fit the tube size. For non-vegetarians, you may add e.g. tuna slices. The new thing here is that I stuffed also very tasty tempe, fried and cut into small pieces. As usual, make tomato sauce with fresh tomatoes. Cover the paccheri with the sauce and put it in the oven, heat up to 200 C for quarter an hour. For cheese-lovers, add some parmesan. In the mean time, cut eggplant (yes, eggplant!) in lengths, leave the skin, and then fry the pieces in hot oil (with onions, ginger, chili, and others). Add garlic and lots of pepper, it makes the taste really fantastic. When it's ready, pour over some leftover of the tomate sauce, also add some olives and basil.

Finally serve your paccheri with the eggplant. You'll get different taste mixed together: sweet, hot, salty. Buon appetito!

Kyrill, Lancelot

Kyrill storm, with a wind gust record speed of 191 km/h and its catasthrophic effects, seems to be over. But now everyone is preparing for the successor: Lancelot.

In case you don't know yet, these names are determined through sponsorship. If you are ready to shell out 199 euros, then you can decide the name of the next (alphabetically sorted) low and high-pressures. But you'd better be fast, many alphabets are taken already. And not to mention that there is no guarantee such pressures will ever become widely-known storms.
