Premium Cheesy Italian Pasta

I invited my coworkers over for a happy hour tomorrow. I'm quite pleased with the e-mail invitation. Check it out:

Hi,

I know this is short notice for most of you, but you’re all welcome to come over tomorrow after school to sample my newest pumpkin beverage or whatever else I have. I live in downtown xxxxx, so it’s just a short drive north on xxxxx road just past xxxxx street. My apartment overlooks scenic xxxxx Park and the xxxxx. The address is xxxxx xxxxx, Apt xxxxx, xxxxx, xxxxx xxxxx. I’m going to leave shortly after school, so 4:45 or 5 for a little bit would be nice. I’m a laid back guy, so whatever.

Pretty sick, right.

Anyway, I made this super-delicious and highly cheesy pasta dish. Yes it's restaurant quality. Yes, it's so cheesy that it can't be good for you.

Premium Cheesy Italian Pasta



7 oz. Pasta of Your Choice (Personally I like it a little thicker. That's what she said. I used Fettuccine.)
3 Roma Tomatos Sliced
0.25 lb. Salad Greens
6 oz. Basil
Olive Oil
5 Hot Italian Sausages Cut to Pieces
Pinch of Oregano
Pinch of Fennel
Pinch of Cracked Red Peppers
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1 lb. Mozzarella Cut Thinly
Parmesan for Garnish

Bring Water to a boil. If you're as cool as I am you'd include the liquid from the Mozzarella with the water and then walk away and find that it foams like a can of shaving cream all over the stove. Wicked. Cook the Pasta. Drain. Place noodles back into pot and drizzle with Olive Oil. Add Salad Greens, Chopped Basil, Spices, and Sausage. When Sausage is pretty much cooked add Mozzarella. When serving garnish with Parmesan. This is decadently delicious. In fact: this dish:decadently delicious::I am:awesomely alliterative.

By the way, I discovered the Tah-Dahs in college and always sing "Alcoholic" and "Temporary" to myself despite the fact that I haven't heard either song in probably 5 years. They got about two seconds of airtime and I'm quite sure nobody has any idea who they are. Their wikipedia page still refers to an album we should expect out sometime in 2006. I can't say that they're a terribly good or innovative band, but I love them nonetheless and found their one album, Le Fun, on spotify. Bless you spotify, seriously. Anyway, you should listen to "Alcoholic" and "Temporary" if you're ever in the mood to have a little of Le Fun. Expect a few Tah-Dah quotes in the posts to come. Also, expect severe celebration when the Rangers win tonight. And expect some sweet Beavis and Butthead watchage when tonight's episode goes online.

F*** St. Louis. At least it was a good game.
