Last night’s dinner was Spaghetti. And because I have been on a cooking roll, I didn’t want to break it with using some ready-made sauce. Sacrilege!
This was also the second dish we had this week with black olives. Might as well use it if we have a Costco sized jar available. I thought I’d make spaghetti ’cause it was the easiest thing, 30 minutes tops! And that already includes all the chopping.
I used the recipe from the “Pasta” cookbook that I borrowed from my friend last year. It was the “Quick Tomato Sauce w/ Black Olives and Cream.” It really was quick and easy. I pretty much had everything available except for the leeks and cream. I finished cooking in no time.
One thing I thought though, while the cooking was easy, the photography in between was a bit challenging. So I give mass props to people who really really do the food design and photography at the same time. I am not posting all the photos.. just an intro and the finished product. The more I do this, the more I’ll master the lighting and plating. We’ll see how it goes.
