You know how I love a 15 minute meal. Sometimes that’s all I have to pull dinner together. Such was the case the night I made this, but the inspiration for the dish had come a few months before.
When I went to Nashville for Blissdom, a group of us had dinner together the first night. Tricia from Once a Month Mom was our ring leader and she took us downtown to Demo’s Restaurant. I chose the spaghetti with brown butter garlic sauce. It tasted really good, but I had an inkling that I could make it better at home.
