Pasta with Prosciutto and Asiago Cheese
2 cups uncooked fusilli (corkscrew) pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 oz sliced fresh mushrooms (3 cups)
6 medium green onions cut into ½ inch pieces
1 medium red bell pepper, coarsely chopped (one cup)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
3 oz sliced prosciutto OR substitute fresh spinach
1 tablespoon fresh basil or ½ teaspoon dried
2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano or ¼ teaspoon
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ – ½ cup shredded Asiago cheese (to taste)
Cook and drain pasta as directed.
Meanwhile heat 1ish tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Cook veggies. Add more oil if needed. Add prosciutto or spinach once other veggies are soft. Stir in basil, oregano, another tablespoon of olive oil, and pasta. Add more oregano and basil because it will taste better! Serve hot with a generous amount of cheese sprinkled over top. Double the mushrooms and garlic if you are a mushroom and garlic lover like me. Actually, just double everything. Leftovers are awesome.

Recently Graduation Month
Yesterday I wrote about graduation speeches.
If you want to read one that is actually memorable, read Anne Lamott’s Berkley commencement speech. It’s pretty amazing. Here’s an excerpt:
“You’ve graduated. You have nothing left to prove, and besides, it’s a fool’s game. If you agree to play, you’ve already lost. It’s Charlie Brown and Lucy, with the football. If you keep getting back on the field, they win. There are so many great things to do right now. Write. Sing. Rest. Eat cherries. Register voters. And — oh my God — I nearly forgot the most important thing: refuse to wear uncomfortable pants, even if they make you look really thin. Promise me you’ll never wear pants that bind or tug or hurt, pants that have an opinion about how much you’ve just eaten. The pants may be lying! There is way too much lying and scolding going on politically right now without your pants getting in on the act, too…”

Coolest cat ever.
I’m going to wait until the end of June to talk about this month’s goal. It’s not a big deal nor is it very top secret, I just think that for my own personal sanity, it should stay quiet until I’m through.
