Reheating pasta for a work cooking contest
We are having a pasta cook-off at work next week and, as the newbie, I want to prove my mettle!
I was thinking of a simple butternut squash ravioli with a brown butter sage. But our place does not have an oven or stove. Just a disgusting microwave. I thought of a hot pot to make the pasta fresh, but what about the brown butter? Will it reheat okay?
Should I change my recipe or do you have any ideas? What would you make for this contest?
I was also considering a slow-cooked meaty ragu or doing Cincinnati chili four-way (last month was chili-cooking contest, which I missed, so this could be best of both worlds!)
