Portuguese Cowboy Spaghetti
My love for Italian and Portuguese food, and being a former cowgirl have collided into this surprising dish. If you think this might be Italian sauce with linguica thrown in … guess again. It’s truly Portuguese in flavor through and through. Would be delicious even without the linguica … so my daughter says. For a real cowgirl dish mix the sauce thoroughly through the cooked spaghetti and sprinkle with a little Jack Cheese … Pepper Jack even.
As far as ingredients go, if your pantry has all you need for Italian spaghetti sauce you are more than half way there. Just a little Santo Domingo Sweet Paprika, and pickling spices to bring out the taste that is so familiar in Portuguese cuisine and you have it made. It’s amazing!
