“Fresh” Spaghetti

This is a favorite in our house. It is a super quick recipe that my kids have named “fresh” spaghetti. This recipe came out of pure desperation one evening. I had the spaghetti noodles boiling in a pot of water and mushrooms and shallots sauteing in a skillet to add to my tomato starter (regular tomato starter recipe here and roasted tomato starter recipe here), when to my utter disbelief I discovered I was out of BOTH versions of my tomato starter. In a split second of panic, I ran to my fridge to see what was in there that I could add to the now almost finished pot of noodles and sauteed mushrooms and shallots. All I had was fresh tomatoes from my garden and the local farmer’s market. I took a leap of faith and threw it all together….to my surprise it was requested again and again!

Supply List:

Shallots or onion
