This spaghetti is sauced with uncooked tomatoes. They are fragrant with uncooked green garlic and sybaritic glugs of olive oil. Salt, pepper. An early version of this "recipe" included basil leaves, but I just can't fall in love with basil leaves. Out of season, anyway. There was a dab of arugula pesto from the freezer. (And the tomato was grown in a hothouse; shoot me.)
I told Cranky yesterday that it was the only sauce I ever wanted on spaghetti, forever.
Then today, I saw a sexy photo of spaghetti in cooked marinara sauce, all tangled through (pasta finished in the sugo, I suspect). And I wanted that.
I'm going through a sort of "me-time" state. Thank goodness the dog is such an adorable clown, and that Cranky is SO good with her.
I'd call it a spaghetti with red sauce period.
