Recipe 32: I remember a recipe from my mum i used to like a lot. It’s pasta with cream of peppers. I wasn’t a big fan of peppers when i was little, but the pasta done in this way i always liked it. Last week i had some of them in the fridge and some cream left from another dish, so i decided to try this again.
Ingredients for 2 people: 200gr pasta, 2 big peppers, around 100gr single cream, one or two shots of vodka, garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil and Parmesan cheese.
Wash the peppers, cut the top, take off the seeds and stuff inside and cut them in little pieces. Put some oil in a pan, hot it up and add some garlic coves. Let it cook a bit and then take it of. In this way you will just taste the garlic without eat it. If you want to have more garlic taste, just crush it before to put it in the oil. Then add the peppers in pieces and some salt and pepper.
Let them cook well for some time and when quite soft you can prepare a sauce pan with some water and salt to then cook the pasta. While the water is boiling, place the peppers in a blender until you create a cream with them.Now you can also put the pasta in the water.
Place the peppers cream again in the pan and add some single cream. Let it cook for a bit and then add some vodka. This will give a special taste to the dish. For the quantities i used one of these little airplane bottle that i found in a supermarket near me.
When the pasta is ready just drain it and place it in the pan with the sauce, toss it a bit and serve it with some fresh grated Parmesan . Enjoy!
PS. Mamy non so se ti ricordi queste penne al sugo di pepperoni. Le hai fatte per alcune cene ed io le trovo buonissime perche invece di essere le classiche penne che sanno per lo piu’ di panna, hanno quel tocco in piu’ della Vodka che ci sta proprio bene!
