Jane Fonda’s Spaghetti in Spicy Peanut Sauce

I love Mondays.  I never go out on a Monday evening.  For me, it’s a night when I cook something nice to eat, and go to bed really, really early.  Tonight was no exception.  I made some of Jane’s spaghetti and I’m about to turn in – it’s 9.30pm.

This recipe sounds a bit odd, but I actually really liked it – here’s Jane’s version:  

The peanut flavour wasn’t too overpowering so it’s weird but good.  Here’s how mine turned out:

My overwhelming desire to make this spaghetti dish was basically led by this photo of Jane Fonda dishing out what looks like spag bol…

there are some other great pics of Jane making a pasta dish in the 1960s on the internet but they have scary looking copyright notices attached so I’m not bunging them in here, but do seek them out by googling Jane Fonda Spaghetti.

Let’s just say that Jane obviously knows her way around massive vats of spaghetti…

P.S.  It is November 2017 and I just found a portion of Jane’s spaghetti sauce in the freezer.  What a treat.  Freezes perfectly and surprised me with how tasty it is.  Fab.

      It is indeed my dear! Glad you like it… I haven’t forgotten about the PEANUT BREAD either!

    This is my “I-really-don’t-feel-like-cooking-tonight” go-to meal. (Probably once every couple of weeks.) It’s fast, easy, and we really, really like it! I add a little fresh or powdered ginger to the mix and omit the bell peppers though. Yours looks lovely and delicious!

    Ooh, I like the idea of the ginger… Mmmmm, making me hungry now!
