Tagliatelle with Puttanesca Sauce.

Tuesday 4th October 2011

“Look at that,” He said pointing at one of the dishes on the menu.

I don’t wear reading glasses (yet!) but imagine me leaning in, squinting my eyes to see what his little finger was pointing at.

“Puttanesca.” I read. “What?”

“It says puta-nesca” He said grinning to himself as he slowly read out the word, emphasising the first two syllables.

Of course I feigned ignorance & said I didn’t get it which seemed to satisfy him. It wasn’t about me understanding what he had stubbled across, it was more about him pointing it out to me.

Cheeky bugger. 😉

More by luck than judgment, I had everything I needed to make this in the fridge. I roasted a red pepper and 3 halved & cored tomatoes. Then sautéed a large onion with a tin of anchovies & about 20 pitted black olives. Finally, I put the roasted veg & a handful of capers in with the onion mixture & put the whole lot threw the food processor until it was thick & smooth.

About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    Smart boy. Am sending to a friend. She loves this dish. I think it is the capers she likes the best.

    He’s a little sassy bugger… he’s certainly one to watch out for. 🙂

    I don’t wear reading glasses yet, either; but I fear my day is coming. Soon. 😦
