Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 6

Recipe 126
Spicy Shrimp and Penne with Puttanesca Sauce
Matt rating **** (I would rate this 5 stars!)

Ingredients used:

Penne pasta
Course salt
Garlic cloves
Red pepper flakes
Anchovy fillets
Kalamata olives
Canned crushed tomatoes
Canned diced tomatoes
Flat-leaf parsley
(I also added freshly grated parmesan cheese)

I absolutely love puttanesca sauce, so any dish with it will be a winner to me! Puttanesca is named after "ladies of the night" because it's spicy, fast, and easy!!! This dish took me less than 30 minutes to make, and would have been even less time if I would have purchased pre-peeled shrimp, but I got the shrimp that was on sale that just needed a quick peel since it was already de-veined.

I inhaled this dish before Matt had even eaten three bites of his. I am very proud of him considering this had tomatoes, anchovies, and shrimp, all things he is not fond of. He finished every shrimp on his plate and actually gave the dish a better rating than I was expecting. This is a keeper for me, but maybe on a night when I am having girlfriends over.

Well the baby is crying so back to mommy-duty I go!
