Garidomakaronada Ouzo and Fresh Tomato



I have to admit my cooking skills are getting better every day thanks to blogging. I have started making dishes from all around the world.

This dish is a example. I would have never made this dish if it is not for my blog hopping which I do almost everyday.
I visit my felow blogers to know what new dish they are making and If i think it is a delicious loooking dish I bookmark them.

You should see my Try recipes list, it is just overflowing.
So last week on my daily blog hopping I saw this recipie in Kalofagas - Greek Food & Beyond by Peter, and I was like wow delicious pasta dish I surley should try this.

And that is what I did today, made this dish for lunch.They were super super delicious. This is a dish. I will be making again and again.If you want to try this delicious pasta dish you can find the recipe here.


Peter has also explained what the recipie means.I didn't had the pasta he used so I used the normal thin variety I had at home and I also added a bit of parsley to the sauce.
You can see the steam on my picture as for me it is cooking the food and fast platting it up and inbetween taking the picture for the blog :-)
I am sending this to the Pasta presto night event.

And also sending it to bookmarked Recipes, which is hosted by Pam from Sidewalk Shoes

You wanna let the milk+vinegar sit for about 5 minutes. It doesn't really thicken, but it definitely tastes like buttermilk!
