Bowtie Neapolitan

Sounds impressive and complicated, doesn't it? It isn't. It's super simple. 

RECIPE: Bowtie Neapolitan









Chives (optional)

Salt & Pepper


> boil water in a pot and cook noodles as recommended on the package

> chop and fry one onion in the oil over fairly high heat; you will make the sauce and shred the cheese in the time it takes the pasta to cook

> chop and add two tomatoes

> chop and add garlic, basil, and chives

> finish with salt and pepper 

> chop or shred some fresh or aged mozzarella (or ANY other cheese)

> drain the pasta

> toss the pasta in the sauce 

> add the cheese either to the pot and toss or leave it separate to self-serve at the table

This one takes 10 minutes, start to finish (if you start with a pot of water that is already hot from the tap). 

It's a great side to any dinner or lunch and is great served hot or cold. If serving cold, do not toss the cheese in while the pasta and sauce are hot.

Apparently, it's been a while...

I haven't been on here in a while.

Life is busy and I let my inspiration wane.

What have we been eating lately? Mostly just veggies and meat. I make hash with yams and other chopped veggies sautéed together. Salads with various chopped veggies and simple dressing of mayo, garlic, and wine.

The flooding in Southern Alberta has affected us, but we are dry. Our focus now is disaster recovery and helping out friends.

I will be back on, talking about food, family, and all manner of good things.
