I have once again the honor of hosting an edition of Fresh Produce of the Month, an event authored by Marta, An Italian in the US. She recently posted the roundup of the previous edition, about pears.
This month, the focus is on cabbage (cavolo) in its different incarnations: green, red, Savoy, napa, bok choy. After the Holidays, I think it is a good idea to reach for a lighter fare, which makes ample use of vegetables.
If you are inspired to participate (and I hope you are), here are the simple rules:
- Publish a post on your blog with a recipe involving cabbage. Add a link to the announcement (either this one or the one on Marta's blog) and mention that it's an entry for the Fresh Produce of the Month event. Feel free to place the logo on your post.
- Send an email with a link to your post, your blog homepage and your name to me at simositeATmacDOTcom. Specify 'Fresh Produce of the Month: Cabbage' as subject. A photo is optional, though helpful.
- If you don't have a blog just send me an email with your recipe and, if you have a picture of the food you made, that's great: I will add it to the roundup as well.
The deadline for entry submission is January 31st, 2009. I will post the roundup soon after.
Note: If you don't receive an answer to your email or a comment on your post within two days of sending me the email, please contact me again: sometimes email messages get lost in cyberspace.
Count me in!

Thanks Priya, I have received it.
Certo, puoi mandarmi una ricetta in italiano con ingrediente cavolo cappuccio, cavolo verza (verde o rosso), cavolo napa o bok choy (non so se questi ultimi due si trovano in Italia). Fammi sapere se hai altre domande.

Pasta con verza
In 2 cucchiai olio evo rosolo aglio a lamelle e peperoncino, bagno con poco vino rosso perchè non brucino e, dopo aver dato fuoco all' intingolo, verso la verza a listarelle sottili. Regolo subito di sale, rigiro con l' aiuto di un cucchiaione di legno e lascio cuocere la verza finchè sarà appassita. Non aggiungo acqua, basta quella che rimane attaccat alle foglie dopo il lavaggio. Cuocio, a parte, 100 g ditali e, doopo averli scolati, li spadello con la verza, unendo anche un paio di cucchiai di pinoli tostati.
ci sono anch' io! :-))))))))

Ciao Elle e grazie. La tua ricetta e' molto appetitosa e mi piace come l'hai descritta. Tra l'altro e' una buona idea per utilizzare il vino rosso. Naturalmente nel riepilogo ci sarai anche tu! :-)
