And Black Olives~
I love Italian dishes..Once a week I crave pasta..
In Italy once a day:)
I had a lot of arugula in the fridge so I decided to make Ann Lindsay's Sweet Red Pepper,Black Olive and Arugula Penne..
What I like doing with this recipe is preparing all the ingredients beforehand..and letting the flavors meld..
When I come home..I cook my pasta..and add it to the already delicious mixture.. add a bit of the cooking liquid and some red pepper flakes and lots of freshly grated parmesan Cheese..Season.
2 sweet red peppers
8 ozs of penne
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 tbsps EVOO
3 cups of arugula..
12 pitted black olives(I use the good Kalamata Olives..not canned)
pepper(I add crushed chili peppers)
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan
Broil red peppers until charred turning frequently..ap 20 mins(Mine are all done in the fall on the BBQ.. the then sit in a brown bag..are peeled and put in Basil EVOO..then bagged and frozen) .We do it once a year...)
Let cool ...save juices... peel,core and seed..cut into strips.
Microwave garlic with oil on high for 1 minute..
In a large bowl add peppers ,arugula,garlic mix , red pepper flakes and olives,.
Add pasta..Toss... add reserved pepper juice and cheese..
