It was a nice Wednesday on Maui, as a couple with two kids wanted to eat something Italian. Though I am not Italian, I swung a pasta for them..from almost scratch. I did not have the time to make the fettucini from scratch, nor the pomodoro from scratch, though I doctored up some tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes from can, and sautéed onions, mushrooms, lots of garlic in olive oil to kick up the Italiano flavors, a splash of cooking sherry, and grated parmesan. Made them garlic bread, a light salad, and of course sautéed shrimp scampi in infused garlic butter, oregano, Italian seasons, salt and pepper, and cooking sherry. The dinner was a success the family ate it all. So, if you need something Italiano, can do.

Lettuce, Cherry Tomatoes, Olives tossed in garlic, olive oil, sesame oil, and some Hawaiian POG

Cooked Bacon from the oven, I chopped up and put some as a garnish, but also put it in the pomodoro sauce, totally home cooking to the max!

Stirring the pomodoro with onions, mushrooms, garlic, oregano (fresh), and Italian seasons, the neighbors could smell it!

Out of sequence this is the beginning of the pomodoro sauce, as I begin the sautéing of the onions, mushrooms and herbs in some light olive oil

The shrimp in butter infused with fresh garlic, herbs and sherry wine, yes my friends beautiful.

Okay enough already, I’m making myself hungry again… but you get the idea, yes, not everything was made from the chef, I had to use some ready made items because of time, and also clients was good with that…remember it will cost more for me to make everything from scratch, if so, then no problem I’ll just be in your house longer 🙂

Al dente fettucini pasta, believe me, this one was good. If some fancy restaurants boil pasta and sell out, well…I’ll use it if you like.

Yes the fettucini and pomodoro are in concert my friends, yes.. beautiful. Sorry no presentation photos, I had to hurry and feed the family, and they didn’t want their pictures taken. You know, I believe they may have been in the witness protection program or something…no just kidding my friends, happy life to you, happy eating. Give me an email we’ll cook and have fun.
