Kodi-kins' Bow Ties

This is from Kodi Smith. We had a pasta and sauce night at Enrichment so I will be posting quite a few of the recipes here. Kodi could not make it, but sent the recipe. Several people attested to the fact that it was really good. Kodi called this Bow Tie Pasta with Red Sauce. I had to change the name to distinguish it from a zillion other recipes.

So I tried it and it was wonderful. What I really loved: It was simple comfort food, but the herbs added a little sophistication. Everyone loved it, even the little ones. I sauce is light, but not too light. I tastes fresh, even though it uses canned tomoatoes (most likely thanks to the fresh herbs.) This recipe makes me want to start that herb garden that has been on my To Do list for the last decade.

1/4 cup butter
1 tsp fresh sage, chopped
1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped
2 tsp fresh basil, chopped
1/2 cube of beef bouillon (the Knorr jumbo cube which is 1" square.)
2 cans stewed tomatoes (1 lb)
1/2 pint whipping cream
1 lb pasta

Put water on to boil for pasta. Add pasta and cook as directed for al dente and drain.

Meanwhile melt butter and add sage, rosemary, and basil and beef bouillon. Process tomatoes and add to above mixture. Add the whipping cream.

Combine with pasta.

LOVE the name. This is one of my girls favs so I make it a couple of times a month. Hope you like it!

So somehow I've missed the existence of this blog. Which was probably good for me. Since now all I want to do is bake everything sweet I saw, and the rolls, and the black bean-corn salsa. YUM. This is going to make an awesome cook book when you blurb it eh?

I CAN attest to this's to die for, really.
