Tonight I made, "Pasta con acchiughe e pomodoro." Yes, that is anchovy and tomato sauce. First off, I hate anchovies, but when I had this dish for the first time in my life many, many years ago in Rome, I was stupified how delicious this was. The anchovies add a depth and complexity to tomato sauce without overwhelming the the freshness of the organic tomatoes that I bought at the green-market. When I was in Rome, this dish was made with Greek olives too. Till this day, I have yet to have a better tomato sauce.

I'm glad to here that others love this dish as much as myself. Tomatos, anchovies, and olives are a match made in heaven. It reminds me of the first time I had Champagne and caviar. Yes, I like Champagne and yes, I like caviar, but ordinarily they are both delicacies I can pass on (myself being the more rustic type). Yet, when I tried them together for the first time at Petrossian here in New York City, I was transported to a different place. In fact, I could say that Champagne and caviar comes from the heavens, whereas Pasta con acchiughe e pomodoro comes from the center from the earth; of dirt and fire.

I LOVE your first photo (that blue bowl really makes the meat/vegies stand out. I love how you caught the steam!), and I also like the second. Wanting to see more of it, I brightened it a little. Hope that's okay.... great dinner! That is one of my favorite dinners!

Our dinner. Almost an instant replay of Saturday night's. Though, I had baked carrots/celery, mashed potatoes and french bread. I also changed the gravy a little bit.
