Hey Look, I Actually Do Cook

My Recipes

Amidst all this fast food and competitive eating information I’m putting up here, I thought I would post documentation of ME actually cooking!   Yes, I do cook.  Just the other day I threw together this beautiful dish:

Breaded chicken topped with pancetta and cheese
Red pepper and cream pasta
Garlic Bread

This is the first time I’ve ever made a pasta sauce using red bell peppers.  Here’s the recipe I used..

Ingredients

  • 3 red bell peppers
  • 1/2 onion – diced
  • 4 cloves garlic (more if you’re like me and love garlic)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 – 1lb heavy pasta

Directions

  • Roast your red peppers until the skins are black.  When you’re done, they should look like this:

  • Place red peppers in a sealed zip lock bag and allow them to sweat for 10-15 mins.
  • Take peppers out of bag, remove skins, stem and seeds.
  • In a blender, puree the red peppers.
  • In a pan, saute onions and garlic in olive oil.  After slightly browned, add pepper puree.
  • Add cream and stir together.  Let it sit and cook for a few minutes.  Add salt to taste.
  • Add pasta and stir together.  Top with shaved Parmesan cheese
