Pasta with Roasted Pepper and Tomato Sauce QED
I hate to admit that I had not heard of Cat Cora before 6 months ago. Here, she is the only female Iron Chef and I had never even heard her name. Now, I have one of her cookbooks and know who she is. I keep planning to make more of her recipes and time doesn't allow it.
Do you have a problem with recipes collecting and not getting to them? I am totally honest when I say, I plan to make something, during the week but then ten more great recipes come my way and I want to make them. How much can we eat? More so, how many cakes and cookies can a home accommodate?
I had to stop baking specifically for my class because I was piling up the goodies. I still have brownies and chocolate chip cookies from Passover to share with them. Of course, that does not completely get me off the hook. I told, last year's class that I would bake for them. They even know what to request, "you know the cookies, you made last year, we loved so much." I do love them all. They are not getting pasta though so here is that recipe.
Pasta with Roasted Pepper and Tomato Sauce Cat Cora
1/2 jar roasted red bell peppers or the equivalent in fresh bell peppers. (I was out of the jarred peppers)
2/3 cup sliced mushrooms
1 onion, chopped
1 can (6 ounces) chopped tomatoes with juice
1/2 pound gluten-free pasta
1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Parmesan cheese , for garnish
Cook pasta according to package directions.
In a large skillet, add the peppers, mushrooms and onions.
Remove about one third of the vegetables and add the tomatoes and juice.
Bring to a simmer and let cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove the skillet from the stove and let the mixture cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
Whirl the tomato mixture in a food processor or blender, taking care to cover the lid with a towel and hold it on tightly if using a blender. Process or blend until smooth. Set aside.
Drain the pasta and transfer to a large serving bowl.
Ladle on the tomato sauce and vegetables with a little Parmesan. Serve immediately
delicious n so quick..:PReplyDelete
