Fall Baking

This time of year I get excited to bake cookies. I’ve been collecting cookie cutters for a long time and have them organized by occasion and holiday. Recently someone anonymously sent me a fox cookie cutter which appeared at my front door. Here are the cookies I made this week. Let the baking begin!

Angel Hair Amore

This summer I had a fabulous pasta dish at Fountain Cafe in Port Townsend. Yesterday I made a vegetarian version of the dish they called Capellini Amore.

Angel Hair Pasta Prep.jpg

Recipe

  • 1/2 Lb Angel Hair Pasta
  • 2 Ripe Tomatoes Chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Basil Chopped
  • 1/3 Cup Kalamata Olives Chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Capers
  • 4 Garlic Cloves Chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Pasta Water
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

Cook the pasta and reserve some of the water for the sauce. Chop the garlic, tomatoes, basil and olives. Saute the garlic in olive oil and add the tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes, add the pasta water, olives and capers. Right before topping the pasta with the mixture add the basil. Serve with Parmesan cheese.  I have to admit this dish is wonderful but the Fountain Cafe’s was better.
