Focaccia & Pasta

Herb Foccacia

What a great dinner we had last night. My daughter is home, for the week, because it's reading week at the University. So she is enjoying mom's homemade meals.

Today I decided to make focaccia. It was my first time making it, but I love eating it in restaurants. I prepared all the ingredients and put everything in the breadmaker. It's that simple for the first part. Just use the dough cycle on the BM. After it's done, the dough needs a second rise. Once it's done I like to poke the holes on top of the dough, and I added olive oil and fresh rosemary. What a great smell in the house while it's cooking.

To go with the focaccia I prepared a Pappardelle with Creamy Sundried Tomato Sauce and Toasted Walnuts. I wanted something tasty and quick to prepare. It was ready in about 10 minutes. Everyone enjoyed.
