Sometimes you just have sides 'cause it seems like the responsible thing to do. These would do just fine with a side of bun.

I have never made anything sous vide. I'd appreciate some pictures to see how it turned out.

Wife wanted pasta, so she got it. She also wanted a roasted veg, but the fridge didn't give anything good up. So I made a salad. This would've been better served perhaps w/ some Spanish rice and pinto beans, but we suffered through it. For the pasta, I roasted some garlic and tossed it in w/ EVOO, lots of Parm and fresh ground pepper. This was 2.5 hours in sous vide at 128F and seared over lump w/ a chunk of mesquite. Normally, I'd go w/ oak on this, but was out.

Well, well, well.... It appears sous vide may require further study.

Looks just about perfect. I am glad you could reach within yourself to suffer through it although the sides were not quite up to par for you. Moments like that build character!

@Boatboy24 Jim, If I may ask, what do you pay for broccolini in your area? Here a bunch about the size you show is $2.79. Do you have a Wegman's market near you?

@bstnh1 Brian, what is your stuffing recipe for your "hand grenades"? We use ground beef, rice, peppers, tomato sauce, onions, garlic and spices.
