Pasta Cooked Risotto-Style: Chocolate & Zucchini's been experimenting with this technique which supposedly is ancient. Makes sense to me. I used to make a pasta and broccoli dish from Ed Giobbi via Craig Claiborne that used this technique and it was wonderful. Sadly, when broccoli-hating kids came along I quit making it and haven't thought of it until now. Hmmm ... time to pull out those old cookbooks and look it up. (Yes, I care less about their broccoli-hating now, insensitive mother that I am.)
