Simple Butter and Tomato Sauce

I am delighted to be able to participate in the Saturday Blog Showcase! Each Saturday we have an opportunity to share a recipe that we have made from a fellow blogger's website. The hostesses are Ann at Thibeault's Table and Lori at All That Splatters. The ladies alternate weeks and this week Lori is the hostess. Thank you ladies for taking time to allow us to share!


 What was I going to cook on a Friday night when there was no way that I was going to drive to the store!?  What was in the pantry?  My daughter told me that she had picked up a small container of puttanesca that we could add to something...hmmm...I remembered my friend, Queen B, at Cozy Kitchen by the Sea.  In October she had prepared a dish that caught my eye.  It sounded great and looked even better so I knew that I would be giving it a try.  With two cans of diced tomatoes on hand, 6 Tablespoons of butter, an onion and angel hair pasta, I was ready!  Queen B credits the recipe to Giuliano Hazan and you can find it here at Cozy Kitchen by the Sea.


Preparation was a breeze!  When I served it I did have the small container of puttanesca available for those who like spicy and I also had some crab for those who like seafood.  The sauce was wonderful and no matter what was added at the table, everybody exclaimed how delicious it was.  This is an excellent example of a meal that is quite tasty, only requires a few ingredients, and doesn't take forever to prepare! 


Thank you Queen B!!

  5. When I was a child, I often stirred a pat of butter into my spaghetti sauce over my pasta! I'd forgotten how good that was. Your pasta looks delicious! Great idea to have the other ingredients at the table so people can customize their own dish!!

  7. I just made this recipe for the first time about a month ago and I cant tell you how many times I have made it since. It is def one of my favorites. I cant believe how simple and delicious it really is. And I so relate to your Friday night...I think it is pasta night every Friday night in our house.
