wild mushroom gnocchi + linguine

By Wednesday, January 31, 2007 No Comments

recently I’ve been watching some of lidia’s shows. my folks love her show, though it would be nice to see my mom with a show of her own. anyway lidia is like mrs. teti, except a lot younger and a lot more friendlier. when i was a kid, one of my dad’s patients was an older gentleman in his 70’s. a mushroom farmer, mr teti and his wife were a nice older italian couple who would babysit me from time to time. my mom enjoyed spending time with mrs teti, guess she reminded her of my grandma back in india; and from time to time i’d get dropped off there for the night. though there wasn’t much to do – mrs teti did make some mean pasta. maybe that’s where this comes from, but i made everything from scratch, except the linguine. though i can see the pasta machine in Mrs. Teti’s old house now…
