Scarborough Fair Pasta

Scarborough Fair Pasta

Confession: in the not too distant past, I thought that the Pauls in both The Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel were the same Paul.

You know, Paul Simon and Paul McCartney? Yeah, I thought they were the same guy. Both Matty B and Unk C are judging me right now.

Sorry boys. Sorry Paul…s…

The best way to apologize, especially to boys, is food. Side note: the best way to apologize to girls is chores. Sparkling clean kitchen floors and piles of mail and other junk that has magically disappeared? That’s the way to my heart.

But back to the Pauls. In an attempt to rectify this situation, I made Scarborough Fair Pasta. You know, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme?

I would bet that none of The Beatles were vegan as none of their songs lend themselves to vegan cooking. “Honey Pie”? Vegans don’t eat honey. “Blackbird”? Vegans don’t eat those. “Sour Milk Sea”? I’m gonna go out on a limb and say no one should eat sour milk.

This pasta tasted like Thanksgiving. Easy Thanksgiving, that is. Pasta is cooked and then sautéed with olive oil and garlic. A handful of each, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme is beauty.

If you are a member of The Beatles, you might want a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese on top. Just don’t use sour milk.

  1. Actually (as Reagan would say) , Paul McCartney is vegan.

  2. Paul McCartney has actually been vegetarian for a very long time. Not vegan, but still close. He’s certainly not eating blackbirds! He is a huge supporter of the Meatless Monday movement.
