Comfort food…


Comfort food...

It’s good to have another half who steps up to the plate – literally the hotplate in this case – and cook you a supper that hits the spot when you feel grim. Last night my wife made her standby ‘cheer up’ supper. She puts a small can of tuna, flaked, into a bowl with a can of chopped tomatoes, fresh basil chopped, fresh golden oregano chopped, a diced garlic clove, a fresh red chilli finely chopped, black olives, a ball of mozzarella torn up, a good tbsp of rinsed capers, a tiny splash of red wine vinegar, a drizzle of olive oil and a grind of black pepper, sea salt and a dash of tomato sauce. She lets it all marinate for at least an hour – then simply pours it into a pot of just cooked and drained rigatoni. It is delicious and I was very grateful….I’m beginning to feel more alive today…hopefully might get into the kitchen later! But whilst I have been recuperating at least my chief sous chef has come up trumps! Thank you ! x

  1. It was my pleasure! Love making this dish. I call it pasta al pizzaiola. My daughter loves it! Glad I could feed you when you were not well.


  2. Aw, sorry to hear that you’re not well Keith! Glad that you had a beautiful bowl of warm comfort food in front of you, courtesy of your wife Jane (it looks absolutely delicious… drool-worthy with that melty cheese!). Rest up, hope you’re on your way to recovery. Thanks for sharing Jane’s dish with us. I’m going to try this combination soon!
