puta-carbo-nesca-fredo


W
hat would you call a pasta sauce that has bacon, cream, garlic, onions, cheese and anchovies - well besides 'a mess'?



I didnt know what to call it so I ended up naming her 'velvet' since this combination was so smooth yet full bodied, not crisp like a tulle or bumpy like a chenille just soft and plush like a velvet. I still had a little left over carrot pasta and it was lunch time so you put two and two together with me and you end up with a threesome.



While I plowed through this the pup had himself a cheesesteak with salt and vinegar chips, but I sneak in flavors on him all the time and this time I had put in a little of the pickle juice from some pickled jalapenos I had made. He couldnt figure out how 'it was a little spicy but really good!' Shhh, secrets are secrets ok?




On another note my tomatoes are making little 'maters.

- the anchovies and I would call that heaven...why did you have to ruin it with those stinky anchovies?
btw, happy Father's Day :)

Marjie said...

Dammit! Your tomatoes have hopscotched right past mine! We have not even gotten to 65 this week.

Your pasta looks good, other than those anchovies. My dearly beloved would like them. A mess often tastes best.

Looks delicious!

Jenn said...

Velvet sounds like a good name to me. I'll some of that along with that sandwich. Mmmm...Cheesesteak.

Happy Father's Day!!

KennyT said...

After this post of yours, I may find Velvet on restaurant menus one day in the near future. Btw, have a nice weekend!

Velvet it is! Velvet is so not a mess..it looks like something that would comfort me on my worst day.

Happy father's day

I would call "velvet" perfect. You should bottle that.

Pam said...

I don't call that mess or velvet, I call that good!

Great idea on adding a little of the pickle juice to the sandwich!

Denise said...

Looks great to me!!!!!

Can I have half a cheesesteak with a small pasta side?

I happen to LOVE anchovies. It's such a shame that so many pizza places don't offer them as a topping anymore.

jalapenio juice! brilliant! and that sauce is just .... wow

I was really excited to see my tomatoes are starting to flower too. yippee!!! And I have a little baby habenero starting. At least those I know the squirrels won't eat...

snugs: it was only a tiny amount of anchovie paste - thanks for the happy wishes

marjie: these tomatoes are the renegades that popped up early by themselves - the ones I planted are limping along..

jason: thanks - it tastes way better than it looks

jenn: thanks for the fathers day wishes

kenny: velvet needs a more attractive pasta - these colors are not working

peachkins: thanks for the fathers day wishes

TW: thats flattery 'par excellence' thanks

pam: he also claims not to like mushrooms but I dry them and mix them in like a condiment and he thinks the flavor is great....

denise: you have a good eye

townhouselady: no anchovies!? where do you live!

LK: I have some tomato plants indoors as well and my cats keep nibbling off the blossoms

Cheesesteak, please... Tomato plant photos were really great! Happy F Day- bet you do the cooking too....

Jill said...

Full Bodied, Secrets, Velvet, Threesome...sounds like a Telenovela

Grace said...

girlichef said...

You just wanted to say puta ;) Velvet sounds like a puta-esque name, actually...so I think that's perfect! And I love adding a little pickling juice to sammies, too...get that from hubby.

doggybloggy said...

buff: thanks - the plants did it all by themselves - I do cook its true

jill: turn the page,turn the page....

grace: 'drool inducing' that will be the name of a future sauce....

girli: dang you read right between the lines didnt you - no gettin'one over on you

mikky said...

Pooja said...

I would call that scrumptious! What a combo! Wow fresh tomatoes! How nice it would be to pluck n have from your own garden. Hoping to do it some day :)

Reeni♥ said...

A plate of pasta like that would erase all my cares away. The cheese steak looks pretty darn tasty, too. Cool pics of the maters!

TavoLini said...

Smart use of pickle juice--my dad was also a fan of putting a bit of spice in our food, the same way!

Isn't it exciting with the tomatoes?? Tavo and I were jumping up and down and showing all our friends our little green tomatoes. We get excited quite easily...
