BAREFOOT BLOGGERS - Sundried Tomato Pasta

Cat of Delta Whiskey has chosen Pasta with Sundried Tomatoes from Ina Garten's collection. Check out Cat's blog to get the recipe.

Nothing holds me back from making a good pasta dish so I couldn't wait to try this one of Ina's. So on the way home from work I stopped at my favorite local grocer's, trusty ingredient list in hand, and as I approached the store there were four police cars lined up in front. I hesitated just for a moment as to whether or not I should go in, but pasta was calling me so in I went. Nothing seemed awry in the store so I went about my shopping. At the checkout, I asked the clerk why the cops were out there hovering. She whispered and said the lady had left her children in the car to pop into the pharmacy and the kids started screaming so the police came. I told her I had been known to do that myself when my kids were little and sick. She rolled her eyes as if to say she had done the same thing. When I left, all I could think was here were four cop cars lined up and we have real criminals out there they could be going after instead of coming after this poor mom. I mean one policeman okay, but FOUR? Geez.

The pasta dish was quite easy to prepare and we loved it. It was very flavorful. I thought I had plenty of fresh parmesan, but low and behold I was lacking in that area because the yankee did not tell me we were almost out. He eats that stuff like I eat chocolate.

Great recipe, but try it for yourself!

That looks really good. Must try.

Left my dau in car once, she was balling when I came out (10 seconds later). thought she would have to drive home alone. And she was 5. I felt terrible. She still reminds me of it. And yes, we have probably ALL done it.

My parents used to leave me in the car too, when they "popped" into a restaurant for dinner or a bar for some drinks. It didn't leave any permanent damage, I still hug my mom, on her birthday.

Just kidding, I never hug here.

(ok really j/k now) :)
