Okay, so for those of you who have been around me often enough – you’ll know that I LOVE cooking and I will often experiment with different food. Usually, this is inspired by what’s available at home, something I’ve seen on t.v., or in print somewhere.
For dinner yesterday, it was one of those times. We had some sweet peppers that needed cooking… so I cleaned and sliced them along with a little bit of onion and garlic.
I threw those into a food processor with a little olive oil and water. Seconds later it was all liquid. I placed these into a pot, added tomato chunks and their liquid into a sauce pan. For a little added flavor I dashed in some chili powder and a twist or two of black ground pepper.
In a deep skillet, I sautéed onion, mushroom and sliced up healthy versions of chicken sausage. None of the bad stuff in there.
Another pot was heating up pasta.
On the side I prepared steamed broccoli, grated vermont sharp-cheddar cheese, and pineapple chunks.
Each person then served themselves a bed of pasta and built their plate with the ingredients above. Very yummy!!
