Any Pasta toppings?

My mom likes to make spaghetti evey now and then... but I dont like it unless I cover it with garlic butter, or alfredo sauce.
I hate tomato sauce, and the peppers and onions, and mushrooms in it aswell.
Any other things I can put with my pasta so I don't get sick of the two I do eat?

Oh my lord gobo. You can put anything you like on pasta. Just last night I made a garlic cream sauce and sauteed some scallops that we put on top of linguine.

Try a clam sauce.

Try bernaise sauce.

Add any meat you like, and veggies too.

Gobo, it all depends upon what you are interested in eating. I often take just about any vegetable (or combo thereof) in the house and saute them in a little olive ol with garlic, add a touch of white wine or vermouth, cook that down, and dress the hot pasta with the mixture. Add a few grates of Parmigiano or Pecorino, and I have a great meal that I'm not ashamed to serve to friends... just depends uponwhat you like.

Ive never had clam or bernaise sauce....
I have put chicken on it.

Most of the things I like are meals themself.... or candy. :D

Veggies I like are spinach, brussel sprouts, carrots, and some others...
stuff I wouldn't like on my pasta

Gobo, I make a great pasta sauce with brussels sprouts! I use butter along with a dab of olive oil, and I pull the sprouts apart, so the leaves all get coated. I add slivered garlic, and watch to make sure it doesn't burn. This is SO good with pasta like pappardelle, strozzapreti, or penne rigate... and I top it with toasted bread crumbs. It is really good.

Do you like fresh tomatoes? If so, here's a recipe for Pasta alla Caprese:

4 large ripe tomatoes, cored and seeded, cut into ½-inch dice
½ cup fresh basil leaves, slivered
¼ cup fresh mint leaves, coarsely chopped
3 scallions, thinly sliced
7 ounces ripe brie (rind removed) or mozzarella, cut in small cubes
3 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed
1/3 cup olive oil
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
salt, to taste

Mix it together, let it sit for 20 or 30 minutes, then toss it with cooked pasta.

That actually sounds pretty sweet!



I hate everything with tomatos except ketchup

I don't think you have Trader Joe's stores in Canada, but any store that sells lots of jarred ethnic-type tapenades & dips - those all make wonderful pasta toppings.

I've used jarred/canned eggplant caponata, different vegetable pestos, tapenades, jarred crostini toppings, etc., etc. They all work for quick pasta toppings. Just drain your hot pasta, toss it back in it's pot with some extra-virgin olive oil, add your jarred topping, toss again to mix, & serve.
