Take a trip to Umbria with me…

I know I said when I first entered Project Food Blog that I would not bug you to vote.  Well here I am breaking my own rules.  There were a few glitches in this round of PFB and contestants were afforded a week’s extension to submit their videos.  Since I submitted mine in the original time frame, it seems like so long ago…  I thought I would remind you about it!

(if you are reading this in an email, you will need to click on the post title to see the video)

You can read the original post here to see why I chose this recipe.  My goal was to chose a recipe with a bit of a story behind it that would be easy to demo in about 5 minutes.  I apparently achieved my goal because at least three people have made this dish since I posted, including the lovely JennCuisine – check out the step by step plating photos here and look at the finished dish…

Spaghetti with tomatoes, lemon, feta and pine nutsJenn says: I’ve made [the pasta] 3x already since you posted your video, it’s freaking awesome – I’ve been making a big batch of it and then using it for lunch to bring to work.  It’s perfect and flavorful and satisfying and totally different from any other pasta dish I’ve ever had.  And so incredibly simple and easy.

People wanting to make this dish and loving it? I am a happy camper!

And should you feel so inclined, you can vote for me here (note: link no longer live). I would love your vote to move on to Round 8, where we have to bake with pumpkin.  I have some pretty fun ideas…  Voting will be open at until 6PM Pacific Time on Thursday November 18th.   Many thanks for your continued support.

** Did you know? Jamie Oliver is speaking in Toronto on November 18th.  Thanks to The Art of Cooking, I am able to offer a discount to you, my readers, of $10 per ticket (more if you purchase more than 5 tickets).  Click here for the special promotion code to be applied to your ticket price.  Don’t miss this event – I saw Jamie speak last year and it was inspirational to say the least. It inspired me to start Les Petits Chefs, for one…
