Veggie Pasta with Mustard-Curcuma sauce

Because of a strange infection, I'm forced to be a bit more creative than usual when cooking - I can not eat things I usually eat. Unintresting, let's get to work.

Today I present:

Veggie Pasta with Mustard-Parmesan

What you need for that

  • About 120g noodles (I choose Barilla Integrale - because of the wholemeal. Taste very good, but not to everything. Carborana for example are not suited for them!)
  • A half courgette (Zucchini)
  • A half Aubergine
  • A half onion
  • If you want, Broccoli
  • Curcuma, Salt, Pepper
  • One spoon mustard
  • Two spoon grated Parmesan cheese (or comparable)
    (can also be a little bit more. OK, forget the little, it can be MORE ;-))

How to cook it

  1. Cook the noodles.
    OK, I assume you know how to do that.
  2. Parallel you can cut the veggies (thin slices)
  3. Put some oil into a coated pan1
  4. When the oil is hot, put the vegetable into it and roast it gently
  5. Add salt, pepper and curcuma to the vegetables
  6. When the noodles are finished, put them into the pan with the vegetables. Add some oil to give some more taste to your pasta
  7. Roast the whole thing for about 10 seconds
  8. Add the mustard and the Parmesan.
  9. Bon apetit! πŸ™‚
Delicate veggie pasta with broccoli-mustard sauce. A bit more Parmesan is allowed πŸ˜‰

1 Why a coated pan? Because you do not need much olive oil in this case - In other pans the veggies is going to burn.

Solution for the broken r8169 driver in Ubuntu

I had troubles with the Ubuntu r8169 driver and my Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller for a long time.

Finally it semms that I found a solution for a stable ethernet connections: The new r8168 driver (Version 8.031.00 - found here on Google Code) seems to work quite good out of the box.

Just extract it, and run (as root) via

Of course, you have to do this after a kernel update once again.
Don't forget this - It frakked me one time!

Thats all πŸ™‚

Seems to do it's work quite good
