Pasta with Roasted Peppers, Basil and Garlic!
Delicious Spaghetti for anyone who is looking for a quick yet very tasty pasta dish!!
1- Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and fry the garlic for 30 seconds until golden. Add the roasted Peppers, stir and cook for a further 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
2- Put 4 litres water in a large saucepan with 3 tablespoons salt and bring to boil. Cook the pasta in the boiling salted water until al dente. To get that perfect “bite”, cook the pasta for 1 minute less than instructed on the packet.
3 Once the pasta is ready, drain, reserving 3 tablespoons of the cooking water. Tip the pasta into the frying pan with the peppers and increase the heat to high. Scatter over the basil and pour in the reserved water. Toss everything together for 30 seconds to allow the sauce to coat the pasta evenly. Serve immediately.
I’m a broccoli lover and enjoy it many different ways from raw to sautéed to adorning this yummy pizza! Individually there are some amazing flavors here, but served all together on a crispy crust and you get a flavor explosion!
Named for the island of Capri, this classic Italian salad is as summery as it gets. Juicy ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil leaves are the three main ingredients. Thinly sliced red onions are a wonderful addition, but optional. Layer on a platter, sprinkle with salt & pepper, drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top. Serve with crusty bread.
My family loves marinara. I think I have a love-hate relationship with tomatoes.. Pesto is my answer to all the tomatoes that I get subjected to.. I love pistachios and zucchini. This is a comfort food I can dig into anytime ... too bad if my waist line groans.. Oh, I have sneaked in some tomatoes into this one .. just for color.He is not invited to be part of the official recipe 😊 There is no garlic in the recipe too, as sometimes I restrict the use of garlic in my cooking. Feel free to add in some chopped garlic, if you love your pastas garlicky..
Cool and crispy salad nestled on a classic red and white picnic tablecloth. Fresh-from-the-garden strawberries and basil, accented with creamy mozzarella and a crunch of walnuts, then drizzled with punchy balsamic and your best olive oil. Perfect fare to cool and freshen the palate on a warm summer afternoon!
Caprese Salad, a classic summertime salad, was created in the 50s in Capri and should always be dressed with a drizzle of EVOO only! Balsamic vinegar would destroy the delicate flavor of the cheese. And use only the finest ingredients since it's such a simple salad!
Think of this recipe as a traditional fruit salad with an upgrade! The combination of fresh fruit with zesty lime juice, a hint of sweet basil, and little extra yummy goodness from the honey will leave your tastebuds wanting more!
