I just ate them too, and beautifully prepared by Ubi Dubius himself. I'm pretty sure there was no mutton in the meatballs either.

I just ate spaghetti. Homemade tomato sauce with mushrooms, black olives, and garlic. Possibly a bit too much wine, but who cares.

I just ate spagetti.

Well, a few hours ago. We had spaghetti at school. I think it was supposed to be cajun style because it was a little bit spicy. It wasn't incredible but it was a decent meal.

I ate spaghetti last night, but then I couldn't find this thread, and when I tried to search for it, the search option decided to ignore the words "spaghetti", "I" and "ate", so I kind-of lost the will to live at that point. The spaghetti was nice, though.

I just ate spaghetti, with the last of my homemade sauce. :D It's always sad to see no more left in the freezer, but, on the other side, I always have fun making it.

Always good to see another homemade sauce person. My wife won't tell me how exactly she concocts hers, but it's out of this world. I can't tolerate the idea of store-bought sauce any more.

I refuse to give away my recipe. Weird how it's kind of a personal family thing. My brothers and I will give you recipes for just about anything we make, but our sauce and meatballs, never.

I just ate spaghetti. Pan-fried up ramps and crushed red pepper flakes in olive oil, then mixed that up with the spaghetti and some bread crumbs.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

I just ate spaghetti, only it was in the shape of a double garlic pizza.

Brasciolle recipe


Ingredients:

one flank steak (around a pound - a pound and a half), pounded thin
one half bulb FRESH garlic, chopped
two garlic cloves (set aside)
two - three tablespoons FRESH chopped Italian parsley (the other kind will NOT do)
a generous amount of Parmesan Reggiano cheese FRESHLY grated (No, Kraft will NOT suffice and to use that sawdust is a sacrilege!)
Extra virgin olive oil

Instructions:

Pound the flank steak thin
spread the chopped parsley, chopped garlic and Parmesan cheese onto the steak
roll the steak up tightly and tie it up with string.
cover the bottom of a large skillet with the olive oil; just enough to cover the bottom of the pan with a thin layer.
brown the two garlic cloves in the olive oil on a medium low heat.
take the cloves out of the pan after they have browned
transfer the steak to the frying pan and brown all sides.
take the steak out of the pan after it has browned and transfer it to your sauce pot where you should have a pot of sauce going.
let the sauce and brasciolle cook, and cook, and cook, on a low heat for most of the afternoon. Make sure that you stir the pot often so that the sauce doesn't burn; you know, all of the regular precautions.

Once you have cooked the sauce to perfection and the aroma has filled your house and you can't wait to dive in, take the brasciolle out of the pot and place it onto a platter (use tongs). Cut the strings off and then slice, with a nice sharp carving knife, the brasciolle into slices about an inch wide. Cover the brasciolle with sauce and serve the platter, along with the sauce your preferred pasta. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! :worship:

Oh, it doesn't hurt your sauce to include meatballs and Italian sausage! :wink:

I just ate spaghetti a few days ago, and a few weeks ago...

I need to remember to get on the forum more often.

I just ate spaghetti...last Sunday night. It was the first night of the GLADE thing I was at. It was really good. It also helped me to start talking about the FSM with people...more on that on a thread I will start soon.

I had garlic bread yesterday as a midnight (or 2 AM, rather) snack!

It was delicious...

The spaghetti was consumed earlier.
