Spontaneity can make for awesome food and can also make for great rides. Partaking in both in the same day is my continuous goal, day-in and day-out. VeggHead BeerCyclist is all for hydration, but recommends good Beer and cold water to help overcome any muddy paths, colder temperatures or longer rides. And then there’s food. I bought a jar of pesto the other day. Going to prepare Pasta last night, I noticed some ingredients in the pesto that I did not wish to consume. A Mexican-American Pasta masterpiece was discovered instead.
In light Olive Oil, chopped Garlic and Shallots were browned in a pan. Chopped Jalapeños were added with Lime Juice, Lemongrass and Tofurky ‘chorizo’.
Later, Almond Milk was added with (cooked) Beans, Sea Salt and Pepper. Penne Rigate was cooked al dente and strained without rinsing to be added to my sauce. The Noodles finished cooking and absorbed outstanding flavor in the sauce before adding chopped Cucumber, Cilantro, Guacamole and Tofutti’s Better Than Cream Cheese. Basil was my garnishment.
This Pasta truly hit the spot. Now to further contemplate my Gran Fondo today. Have a great day!
