We're living in an age when seeing people cooking on television has become commonplace,但在1963年，一个高个子的年轻女子
朱丽亚的孩子started using television to engage America in her love for home cooking,it was a very unique thing indeed.自从朱莉娅以来，很多人在电视上做饭，但从那以后，很少有人用这种风格和如此非凡的幽默感来做这件事。当我翻阅我唯一的一本茱莉亚儿童食谱时，我开始思考那种幽默感，

What I settled on was this recipe for Spaghetti Marco Polo,where even the name of the recipe is an inside joke,with Julia is reminding us that noodles like spaghetti really came from China,and when she made the recipe on her TV program she urged viewers to eat the spaghetti with chopsticks.Another bit of humor in the recipe is her admonition not to overcook spaghetti: "It's inedible if not cooked enough,but sad when mushy,bite with an alert tooth,因此，“当我想起茱莉亚的时候，我记得的那些迷人的评论。她于2004年去世，when there were only a few bloggers writing about food,但我想，如果她今天还活着，她可能会非常喜欢看到人们在互联网上以一种全新的方式分享对美食的热爱。当我昨天意识到我即将错过为第二年制作茱莉亚儿童食谱的机会时，I quickly found this recipe,一大早就做好了，and ate some for breakfast.I gave the rest to Rand and Bradley when they came over later to help me set up my new computer,and we all completely loved the fresh taste of this dish,which may well become a favorite,since it took only minutes to make.Here's how Julia would have done it.
Julia Child's Spaghetti Marco Polo ((Makes 4 servings,Recipe slightly adapted from one which appeared inFrom Julia Child's Kitchen）
Ingredients: 1/2 lb.spaghetti (I usedDreamfields Low Carb Pasta南方海滩饮食。） 2/3杯烤松子（茱莉亚用核桃） 1/2 cup chopped black olives 1/2 cup roasted red peppers (from a jar) 1/4杯切碎的欧芹 1/4 cup fresh basil,cut in strips (I used more basil than Julia did) sea salt/fresh ground black pepper to taste 1茶匙。garlic puree or finely minced fresh garlic 4 T good quality olive oil 提供新鲜磨碎的帕尔马干酪（茱莉亚说两杯，but I got by with a lot less!)
Fill a large pot with water,add a good sized pinch of salt,把水加热到沸腾。当水加热时，toast pine nuts in a dry pan for 2-3 minutes until just starting to brown,drain canned olives and red peppers and chop coarsely,and chop herbs.组合螺母，橄榄，红辣椒，草本植物，salt,and pepper in a bowl.
当水烧开时，加入意大利面，stir,稍微减少热量，让意大利面在相当剧烈的沸腾中煮8-9分钟，until barely "al dente" or slightly chewy in the center.大约七分钟后，你需要开始咬一块意大利面来判断它什么时候做得很好。
当意大利面做好后，用一个大的滤器排干。把橄榄油放在你用来煮意大利面的锅里加热，add garlic,and cook just a minute,足够长的时间，你几乎没有闻到大蒜味，taking care not to let the garlic brown.Add spaghetti to the pan,toss to coat with oil and garlic mixture,and season with salt and pepper if desired.(I didn't bother with this since there was salt and pepper in the herb mixture.)
Remove spaghetti to large serving bowl,top with mixture of nuts,橄榄，胡椒粉，和草药，还有“用戏剧性的手势和一个大汤匙和叉子，在上意大利面之前，把意大利面放在高处，与调味料混合在一起。and pass parmesan cheese for each guest to add to their portion.

whole wheat spaghetti,这道意大利面是第二阶段的一道很好的配菜。
南海滩饮食,or it could be served as a main course for phase three.Because it's a fairly high-fat dish with the olives,松子，olive oil,and Parmesan cheese,I'd probably consider it a "once in a while treat" for South Beach dieters.
