Spring for a Day and a Repeat Recipe

Oh my, did we ever get a taste (a real teaser) of spring time yesterday!  Our thermometer in the shade read 42°, and I know it must have been at least 50° out in the bright sunshine.  We could almost watch the snow melting.

Now today we have 20° and a steady snow has been falling all morning.  Typical, crazy, back and forth weather for late winter/almost early spring in our area.

This morning Kristina over at Pioneer Woman at Heart wrote about a dinner dish she made up last night that was a hit at her house.  She called it Mexican Linguine, and it reminded me of an Italian dish that's a favorite in our house.

I did a post on my Tagliarini just about exactly four years ago (in March of 2012 . . . my, how time flies), and I thought it was worth repeating again here.  I admit I haven't made it in a while, but Kristina's post reminded me of it so I think it may appear on the menu this coming week.

Although guys especially seem to like it, it's popular with females, too.  Once on a camping trip with some good friends, I made it for an evening meal.  The following morning in our camp, we were all sitting around the fire sipping our morning brews when I asked what we should make for breakfast.

"I don't know what anybody else wants," said Rose, "but I'm eating more of that leftover Tagliarini."

It is just as good heated up the next day (some would say even better) so don't be daunted by the big batch the recipe makes.  Unless you're serving a whole soccer team (or two teenage sons), you'll have enough for some yummy leftovers.

Kristina - You're so welcome. It was you post that made me think of it again.

This sounds like something we would enjoy. I copied it to my files and sent one to my cooking Sis in Iowa.

Thanks for sharing.

gld - Hope you get a chance to make it . . . and that you and your Iowa sister both enjoy it. It's a good summer time meal that's different from the usual (and always appreciated!) fresh salad fare because it can be done on top of the stove with no need to light the oven and heat up the kitchen!
