I. crave. pasta. If anyone ever told me that I could not eat it, I would be devastated. Likewise, if anyone had ever told me when I was a young girl that I would love it as much as I do now I would have given them a funny look! I hated it as a child. I know, I was weird. Potatoes & Pasta….neither one of them were foods I wanted to eat as a child.
Still, as an adult, I’m not normally a tomato sauced pasta lover. I’d rather have a butter sauce, Asian sauce, or cream sauce with my pasta. However, Saturday I was craving a tomato-ey coated thick pasta. I had some buccatini left in my cupboard and I wanted to use that. I knew to use that I needed a sauce that would flow through the tube of the buccatini.
I decided I had to make do with what was in my cupboard to create a dish because I was not going out in the snowy cold weather we were having on that lovely October day! Seriously, I really hate seeing snow before December. Grumpy is a lot like me when it comes to pasta sauce – and he wants his full of beef if he has it in a tomato based one…so he wasn’t extremely excited about the dinner, however, he did eat it and say it was good. I guess that’s good enough of an endorsement from him!
This will be my submission for Presto Pasta Nights. This week Ruth of Once upon a Feast is hosting. For the guidelines on participating, please check out the PPN website! I hope to see you there 🙂
