This week for the thirty-fourth recipe I've made for Thirty Minute Thursdays, cooking our way through Giuliano Hazan's Thirty Minute Pasta book I made Tagliatelle al Ragu Veloce (Tagliatelle with a Quick and Simple Meat Sauce), on page 156.
The ingredient list: onion, olive oil, butter, tomatoes, ground chuck, salt, tagliatelle (or pappardelle or rigatoni or shells), and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
This is basically noodles and meat sauce, but with a little extra kick with the fresh tomatoes and onion sauteed into it. It's nice to have a pasta sauce with meat on a weeknight as it incorporates all the food groups into one quick, easy meal. My regular meat sauce takes hours on the stovetop and is truly wonderful with a depth that you can't get with just a quick sauce like this. That said, this is a very nice sauce as the fresh tomatoes retain some of their firmness and body so it gives the sauce a lovely fresh taste. Definitely a repeat.
Here's Margaret's entry this week. If you like the looks and sounds of it, buy the book as I am a believer in encouraging people to support the authors who put together these fabulous books by buying a copy, so you won't find the recipes posted from this book here. (Buy it, the recipes are easy, the ingredients are easy to locate, it's not pricey, and there are photos of almost all the recipes.)
