Have you tried making your own infused oil...it can be garlic infused or herbs infused. For me, I prefer fresh herbs...especially rosemary and thyme. I used heat the oil method .You can check it out here if you are keen to make your own fancy flavors infused oil :) . With this infused oil, you can drizzle on your pasta, as a salad dressing or as an appetizer with chunks of artisan bread. I not only used them for pasta but mixed it with balsamic vinegar...gosh...drooling just thinking of balsamic vinegar with rosemary infused oil as a dip for my artisan bread :) When Iam fully recovered, I will be baking bread again and you can guess , I will surely make balsamic vinegar dip with the rosemary infused olive oil .
For today, I drizzle the rosemary infused oil on my linguine and gosh ,it does make a difference to usually bland linguine. I added cherry tomato and pan grilled salmon and some chinese mushrooms to it. The perfect pasta for a light lunch :)
