Monday’s dinner, Tarragon Chicken and Farro with Mascarpone & Tomatoes was a hit. When I heated our dinner at home Monday night the smell of that tarragon sauce made me so happy. The French really have figured out wine, herbs, and butter. What a winning combination.
We topped the farro with Gioia mascarpone, to be stirred in as the farro heated. It was so rich and lovely – it took the edge off the nutritious aspect of the whole grain. Thank goodness. The farro was served with fresh diced tomato stirred in, which transformed it to a summer dish, I think. My family ate outside and enjoyed the late evening sunshine. I have to say, I love Monday nights. Dinner is cooked, all I have to do is reheat it. It doesn’t even matter that we cooked it ourselves that very day, it’s still a gift.
