Spaghetti Muffins mit Tomatensalat

Spaghetti - quite addictive

February 18th, 2018 | main dishes

Italians probably will tear their hair about my recipe for spaghetti muffins. I have the heart to publish it anyway. There are at least seven good reasons for it:

Spaghetti - quite addictive

Our spaghetti cupcakes are

  • very easy to prepare
  • done at lightning speed
  • super tasty
  • ideal as a lunch-time snack
  • taste hot and cold
  • great on a buffet or for a picnic
  • the big hit with children

With this post I take part in the blogparade “Unkompliziert und geschmackvoll” of “Optic Food”.

100 g of bacon, diced

And that’s how the wife of the captain does it

With a salad of tomato, Burrata [Italian creamy cheese], pesto and some roasted pine nuts the small compact pasta packages are a nice main dish.

In times when we cannot travel due to the corona pandemic, why not bring a holiday feeling on our plate at home! Last weekend we were on a short culinary trip in Mexico, more precisely in Veracruz on the east coast of Mexico. A wonderful tuna fish with a fiery, colorful sauce awaited us and it was as if we were listening to the sounds of marimba and mariachi in the humid, warm evening air… Viva México!

Shore leave St. Cruz de La Palma/Canary Islands

The Italian ship’s doctor, known for his passion for good food, invited us to this restaurant. He has been visiting it for years on every port stay in Santa Cruz. Now we know why. A tiny house with an even tinier kitchen, six tables, great taste and even greater hospitality. Happy, who gets a table at Doña Carmen, at the ENRICLAI in Santa Cruz de La Palma.
