Dora the Explorer and her Spaghetti

Lola my neighbor invited me to her daughters baptism. This celebration was truly special and will always be remembered. She had prepared a menu that was truly exquisite but the dish that caught my attention and appetite was the Spaghetti Putanesca here is how it was done. enjoy:

1/3 cup olive oil 9 anchovies
8 whole garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
4 medium ripe tomatoes, chopped and seeded
(enough to make 3 cups of tomatoes) or
one 28-ounce can tomatoes, chopped, w/juice
12 Calmata olives, pitted and halved
2 teaspoons capers, drained
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1/2 to 3/4 pound fresh pasta
Chopped fresh parsley

Heat the oil in a saute' pan or skillet. Add the anchovies and whole garlic cloves. Cook until the garlic cloves brown and the anchovies fall apart. Add the red pepper flakes and cook a few seconds more. Add the tomatoes, olives, and capers. Simmer for 30 minutes. Add the chopped garlic, parsley, and basil to the sauce and simmer a bit longer.

Cook the fresh pasta in plenty of boiling salted water for 2 to 3 minutes or until al dente. Toss with half of the sauce until well coated. Arrange the pasta on a platter and pour the remaining sauce on top. Sprinkle the chopped parsley over all. Serves 4.

This dish can be combined with just anything that is why it became my favorite, I change the ingredients here and there and it's always a hit no matter what.

These can be bananas, mango, cocoanut, passion fruit, oranges, lemons, limes, and even yams. If you can get enough mangos for everyone at the party, try getting them early enough so that they are almost too ripe to eat. The mango is a very juicy fruit and itís said that you can literally cut a hole in the skin and use a straw to suck out the mango juice when its overripe. This might be a fun activity to try with the kids at your Dora the Explorer party. In addition to whatever main course you decide on try serving up some Marshmallowed Yams as a sweet side dish.

Marshmallowed Yams are great for the Dora the Explorer kids party since they are a fruit from a jungle climate and they are also good for other holidays like Thanksgiving. Get a can of cooked yams and pour into a casserole dish. Add to this a mixture of the juice from the can, corn syrup and some crushed mint leaves or mint flavoring. On top place an even layer of marshmallows. Put into the oven at 350 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes. This is a mushy and fun treat for your Dora the Explorer party.

As with any party, you should be well prepared to deal with the mess, and one of the biggest time savers is of course paper products. Plates, cups, napkins, even disposable table covers can all be used to minimize the amount of time spent cleaning up after a party has ended. Make sure not to neglect these most useful of time savers. By just adding even one simple food item to the menu will help create a complete Dora the Explorer theme party feeling.
