FRESH PASTA



I prepared this dish for our supper last night.  I do have to say it was probably one of the best (not counting our family goulash) I have fixed all summer.  And, Jon like it too so that is always good. 
I created this recipe last summer (and fortunately saved it) by combining a couple recipes I saw online.


1/4 cup fresh basil
1 tablespoon flat leaf parsley
2 garlic buds
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (I used herb and garlic)
        Salt and pepper   

Run this through a food processor or chop by hand and then add the olive oil.

Then add: 2 large Chopped tomatoes and pulse until everything is combined.
Add 1 pound Italian cooked and drained sausage. Cook 1 Pound Angel Hair or regular Spaghetti, drain and add the above mixture.
Once slightly cooled add 1 1/2 cups Romano cheese

Jon asked me to add some meat next time, hamburger or sausage.  So I did.  Personally. I would just soon to have it without it.

Even better the next day.

Always great to get a nice sauce recipe. It's great to be meat free now and again. I do like my veggies

Sounds yummy Joan, I will try in a week or so, giving my tummy a break from Garlic and oniion right now, and my hubby is like John, he likes meat with his meal, or he is hungry an hour later!!! Thanks again for the recipe, sorry if this is a repeat, I tried to send my comment through the first time but I don't know where it went!!
