Easy Pasta Dishy

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.
