Red Bell Pepper Pasta


It was a long weekend last week. It was loaded with loads of dishes and fun. I didn't get time to cook (click) anything for the blog. As usual, I had to dig out my drafts to post something today. Found couple of 'how-to's and a simple, quick, delicious pasta recipe.

'How-to's obiviously take a long time to edit and publish and so I picked up the pasta recipe. It was prepared from the pioneer woman and tweaked as per my personal need.


Basic Information:

Preparation time: <10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves: 2


Ingredients:

Uncooked Pasta - 1 cup (I used penne pasta)
Red bell pepper - 1 no., medium size, cubed (about a cup when cubed)
Garlic cloves - 3 nos., medium size, chopped
Onion - 1 no., small size, chopped
Butter - 2 tablespoons
Black pepper powder - 1/2 teaspoon or to taste
Salt - to taste
Dry herbs - 1/4 teaspoon (Thyme and Oregano)

Method:

1) Wash pasta well and cook as per the instructions given in the pack.
2) In a pan, heat a tablespoon of butter.
3) When it melts, add garlic. Fry for a minute.
4) Add onion. Saute it until it becomes soft.
5) Add red bell pepper. Saute till it becomes soft.
6) Allow these ingredients to cool. Once it is cooled to room temperature, grind it to a smooth paste. If required add very little water(a tablespoon).
7) In the same pan, heat remaining butter. Add the ground puree to it. Use 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water to rince the mixie jar and pour to the pan. Mix well.
8) Add dry herbs, black pepper powder and salt. Taste and adjust spices.
9) Allow it to cook until it reaches the sauce consistency.
10) Add the cooked pasta to it after draining the water completely.
11) Mix well carefully without breaking pasta.
12) Serve hot.

Notes:

1) Use any of your favorite shaped pasta. Instead of butter you can also use olive oil. Use freshly ground black pepper for nice flavor.
