On a completely different note, here’s a recipe for awesome pasta:

Boil pasta according to instructions. When *nearly* al dente (ie. nearly ready), heat another saucepan; add a little olive oil, a few torn cherry bocconcini, a couple of dessert spoons of mascarpone and a handful of chopped shaved ham, and plenty of cracked pepper. Cook for a few minutes until the cheese melts. The pasta should become al dente while you’re cooking this, so it can all be thrown together while fresh. Enjoy.
