Gemelli with tomato sauce:

6 red ripe Early Girl tomatoes, $2/lb at the farmer’s market, seeded and diced.

1 can diced Italian-style tomatoes (ran short)

1 yellow onion, minced

5? cloves garlic, minced

1 shallot, minced

A splash or two of Cabernet (Forestville, which we drank with dinner)

Vegetarian meatballs (disintegrated, not so good)

2 small cans sliced black olives

1 large spoonful capers

1 small handful pine nuts

Red pepper flakes




Dried oregano

Around 1 cup chopped fresh basil

Butter and EVOO base to fry in.

Freshly grated parmesan to sprinkle.

Cranky mood turned good with strange Mad Libs and substances.
