Pesto-Mascarpone Pasta

It's been a while since I posted here, and things have changed a lot, as things often do. Perhaps the most relevant change, given the content of this blog, is that my lovely no-longer-new girlfriend Janet is a vegetarian. I haven't converted by any means, but this has nevertheless influenced the way I cook and eat, and I've developed a renewed interest in minimizing and optimizing my meat intake, using meat for flavors and accents rather than for substance. Today's offering is, however, truly vegetarian and provides a great way to feature the tangy vegetable flavors of Mediterranean food.
