a beautiful little island but a perfectly planted and nurtured garden awaited us and I had nothing to do with it. Never planted a seed, pulled a weed, or dug anything. I know, it's awful.
Chive Flower Pasta:
1 pound high quality dried pasta
big bouquet fresh chives, finely chopped, plus purple flowers
1/2 teaspoon salt
a lot of fresh black pepper
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons high quality unsalted butter
zest of 1 lemon
Easy. Boil a big pot of salted water and cook pasta al dente. When it's ready, turn the heat off and add the drained pasta back into the hot pan. Toss in everything and gently mix.
As this dish is so simple you really want to taste the butter, salt, pepper, and lemon. So if any are subtle add more. Drop some flowers on top when serving and dig in.
