Kayti's Kitchen: Spaghetti Onyourknees

Welcome back to Kayti's Kitchen! Ever since I moved from Denver to Kansas City, I've super (super) missed my work wife, Kayti McGee, cooking me yummy things. These days, I'm coercing her–or domming her, one of the two–into coming up with a recipe inspired by a book of my choosing each week.

Be sure to share this post to enter the giveaway at the bottom!

This week, Kayti has whipped up a fantastic recipe to go with my own 1001 Dark Nights: Falling Under You release. I hope you enjoy Norma and Boyd's story as much as I know you're going to love this meal! xoxo- Laurelin

Spaghetti Onyourknees

By Kayti McGee

When Norma and Boyd have their first night together, nothing could possibly satisfy their long-held desires like Italian food. This is a simple homemade sauce that will impress anyone you may wish to bring home–or anyone whose home you’d like to visit.

28 oz can crushed tomatoes
½ stick butter
3 minced cloves garlic
⅓ cup red wine
1 sprig rosemary
16 oz fresh or dried pasta
1 cup chopped fresh basil

Combine first five ingredients in a saucepan and simmer gently for an hour to an hour and a half. Stir occasionally, while thinking romantic thoughts. Remove rosemary after an hour.

When the sauce approaches readiness, cook pasta according to package directions. When al dente, drain and add to sauce, tossing to combine.

Serve in 3 oz portions, sprinkling fresh basil and parmesan over the bowls. Serves two lovers hot before a night of passion, and the same two cold in bed once they’re sated.
