Buona Domenica con la Gnocchiatta Machorra alla José Luis

Dear readers and fellow bloggers:

Good afternoon and Happy Sunday. Today we decided to prepare in advance the Gnocchi of the 29th day of the month to follow our ancestral Italian tradition, as we have shown you in this article.

It has ben almost 6 months since the unexpected and tragic demise due to the Covid 19 infection of our dear Uncle José Luis in Montevideo and we miss him terribly; in fact one of the dedications of our new upcoming book Emotional Frustration – the hushed plague was made to his dear memory. Whenever we prepared a similar succulent dish with tomato sauce, meat and chorizo, he praised it by saying: “está para criar machorras.” It can be translated as : “fit to raise awesome tiger cubs.”

We prepared a sauce of san Marzano tomatoes, onions, peppers, minced meat, chorizo and walnuts. Together with our grandmother Yolanda and our mother Gladys, José Luis taught us how to prepare a fresh homely tomato sauce with a few ingredients. The chorizo is our latter day decadent addition.

Buon appetito!

Gracias querido Tío José Luis!

Stay distant. Stay safe. Stay beautiful.

Buona Domenica a tutti voi con questa salsa Dotta Plus

Dear readers and fellow bloggers:

Good afternoon. Today the sky has been stubbornly grey and rain pouring intermittently in this “Banana Republic of South Florida”, for which we decided to prepare a hearty pasta. What’s better than cheese-filled agnolottis with a Bolognesa sauce with the plum San Marzano tomatoes and Burrata cheese? We used a few elements that we had bought in the Whole Foods supermarket of Downtown Miami; with just a few bucks you can eat like a prince. The forced Social Isolation has made caged tigers in the kitchen out of us.

The most important thing is to prepare all the major elements of the sauce-(veggies and meat-s) separately and not dump everything in the tomato sauce to cook slowly; we must avoid the burned fatty acids that are inevitably formed when you sauté on the pan. The colander is the best safeguard for your family’s stomachs and arteries. Use it in earnest.
