Garlic Pasta

Ingredients:
Tri-Color Orzo or Israeli Couscous (Israeli Couscous is larger pearled couscous which is toasted pasta)
1/8 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon butter (optional)
2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil (optional)
Grated Italian cheese

Directions:
Cook the pasta according to package directions based on the serving size. Couscous absorbs the liquid that it is cooked in, but orzo must be drained. In a microwave safe measuring cup, cook the garlic in the olive oil for 25 seconds. Add the optional tablespoon of butter to the garlic mixture. When the pasta/couscous is done cooking, drain (if pasta) and add the garlic mixture and the optional basil. Sprinkle with grated cheese.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
