Not So Great Penne alla Primavera
With the name "Mario Batali" attached to this recipe, I expected so much more. The flavour was great, but the cooking times may have been too long: Where were the bright greens of spring? The additional of the mint was a nice twist, but the "sauce" the recipe referred to at the end never materialized, resulting in a rather dry dish. I don't think this will go into the menu rotation.
