Today was non-other than productive. Every time a semester ends I do a semi-thorough room cleanse. Why, "semi" because today I found paperwork from long ago that obviously found its way to the trash today. Basically everything that doesn't get done during the semester, gets done on days like today.
Also I thought today was Thursday, not Wednesday, so major disappointment when I got home from my niece's award ceremony, and found that Grey's Anatomy was not on. Any Grey's fans out there? Please let me know what you think about this CRAZY season finale!!
So I made this spaghetti after seeing it somewhere online, and because I didn't have enough tomato sauce. (Note to self: get tomato sauce). One of the things that I really liked about this recipe was that it was simply butter and crackled pepper. I am not against butter or hot pepper, no way!
Simple, Spicy Spaghetti
- olive oil (about 3-4 tablespoons)
- butter (about 3 tablespoons)
- garlic (1 crushed clove)
- black pepper (a pinch)
- crackled pepper (to taste)
- cheddar cheese (optional)
Place a large skillet, or large enough skillet at medium heat, heat 8 cups of water once it begins to boil add spaghetti and then 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Turn to high heat. Leave spaghetti in boiling water, stir, bottom to top, top to bottom. Peel and crush the garlic and set aside. Once the pasta is ready (about 10 minutes), drain the water, and put the spaghetti back in the pan, add butter, black pepper, garlic, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and crackled pepper. And it's ready to serve!
|As you can tell this is a lot of pepper, even for me, so I added shredded cheddar cheese and wow even better!|
