Tagliatelle Pasta with Fennel, Orange and Broccoli

Dinner 6/09

Tagliatelle Pasta with Fennel, Orange and Broccoli

Long story short: Our pantry doors weren't installed properly 12 years ago, and had been become so misaligned that the doors never closed properly, causing the hinges to break periodically. Last week, a two-man crew came and fixed them -- finally. They had to remove the pantry "box" (which was screwed into the wall), add a 2" piece of wood as a spacer between the pantry and the fridge and install a new type of hinge. Now it closes perfectly. It was a good time to re-org the items in the pantry as well.

One of the things we found in the pantry was a package of taliatelle pasta from Trader Joe's that was a little bit... old. For the topping we combined a quick saute of red onion, fennel, tofu and orange segments along with some steamed broccoli and coated the whole thing with a sauce of reduced veg stock and nutritional yeast.
