Adventures with the new stove

While our new stove has been in our new home for almost a month, it had not been hooked up until a few days ago. Why? Because we had to wait on our counter tops, which finally arrived!

So, on today’s menu was the Buttery Tomato Sauce with pasta and garlic bread.

The recipe states you should coarsely chop the tomatoes, but I am not very handy with a knife, so I just used my handy dandy immersion blender to chop up the large chunks of tomatoes. I got my red hand blender at Kohl’s, here is a similar model: Smart Stick Blender. I’m actually jealous that it comes in pink now! I love that thing, I’ve made pina coladas, salsa, and now this sauce with it.

I’m probably like your picky child, I don’t like marinara or red sauces and prefer just butter and noodles if red sauce is involved, but because of the buttery, tomato goodness, this is delicious. My boyfriend also said this was a make again dish. :o) YAY! Now, because I cooked this dish, it wasn’t quite perfect…it was just a bit too watery, but still delicious!

Hope you enjoy!
