Next of course are the noodles. While boiling your water, add salt, pepper, 2-3 crushed
garlic, olive oil, oregano, & parsley. Place your noodles in when the water comes to a good boil. It seems everyone likes their noodles a different consistency... Yet I remember an old woman once told me the way to check for doneness is to take a couple noodles and throw them at the wall.. If they stick they are done.. Now I dont necessarily do that yet I found her method quite funny. Strain the noodles in a colandar. Much of the herbs added eariler will cling to them giving that much more flavor and appearance to the finished product. The olive oil also helps to keep them from sticking.
Of course no spaghetti dinner would be complete without garlic toast. Slice up a small loaf
of french bread and place on a cookie sheet. In a small bowl combine: olive oil, pepper, sesame seeds, 1 Tablespoon butter, and 1-2 crushed garlic cloves. Microwave this briefly just to melt the butter . Spread on both sides of cut bread and broil in oven until lightly brown. Turn as needed. The rest... well that is simple... sit down and enjoy. Needless to say it was an enjoyable dinner and just the right meal to start off our Fall season.
The weather this morning is cloudy and a cool 56... I may just have to bake a little.. I did promise my son a goodie box in the mail.... Enjoy your day.
