that's amore.

i've been obsessing about making the italian staple cappellini con cacio e pepe (pasta with cheese and pepper) since i read about joanna's version of the dish on cup of jo last week. her cappellini con cacio e pepe was a little healthier than mine: i cooked the nigella lawson version, which consists of penne pasta, butter, lots of parmesan cheese and tons of freshly ground black pepper.

the florida version of fall has finally arrived, so i've been spending a lot of time with the windows and lanai doors open, enjoying the gorgeous weather. this is the perfect dish for a november night wherever you are, whether florida or maine: it's comforting, and the heat from all that pepper gives it a great kick.

what's your favorite comfort food? (soup is my second favorite after pasta.)
