It being an Ember Friday I ate rather little today, and I am avoiding meat.
So, I thought to prime myself for a workout tonight with some pasta and things from the garden.
I picked a mess of these little bitty tomatoes.
What to do?
I looked in the fridge and saw some olives that needed using.
“Ma va!”, quoth I! “I know what I’ll do!”
So… I gathered a few ingredients.
“But Father! But Father!”, you are surely saying. “Capers? Anchovy paste? EWWEEEEW!”
Those of you who have a little more knowledge see the anchovy, olives, tomatoes, hot pepper, and…
This can only mean Spaghetti “alla puttanesca“.
The water was boiling and the sauce is ready in a flash. Time to move!
And I as reached for the spaghetti, I noticed that package of pasta sent by a reader of this blog who used my wish list.
And.. with a chuckle, I made….
Strozzapreti alla puttanesca.
And if you were wondering… fantastic.
