Just before dinner I whipped up some whipped cream and piped it onto the tops of them. They looked sooo good! Then came the shot where I wanted to show the inside of one. This meant I had to finally take a bite. I used a fork and couldn't wait for the fork to hit my mouth. Only, it wasn't all I was hoping for. It was, sadly, kind of tasteless. : ( All my waiting had been for this?? Ahh, man! I thought after all my work I might as well tell you about it and share the link to the recipe. If I did make them again I would up the spice amount and possibly add a 1/4 cup more sugar. Just goes to show things don't always work out like we plan.
Doesn't it look soo yummy? : (
The recipe I am sharing is one of my own, it's very tasty and quick to make.
Now please keep in mind that I don't really measure when I cook. So, I'm not quite sure
about exact amounts, but I'll try my best for ya.
Tomato & Feta Pasta
4 - 6 tomatoes, chopped and seeded
1 red pepper
1/2 red onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1 cup or to taste, diced feta
salt & pepper to taste
Enough cooked pasta to feed your family.
I used spaghetti, but you could use
whatever kind you want.
1. Cook your pasta. I'm pretty sure I don't need to tell you how to do this. : )
2. Chop all the veggies and cheese.
3. Add some oil to a large fry pan, enough to coat the bottom. Saute pepper, onions and garlic. Once the onions are a bit translucent add the tomatoes. Cook for a minute or two longer, then add the cheese. Cook an additional minute or two.
4. Toss with pasta and salt and pepper to taste. That's it!! Enjoy!
The cooking time for this dish is as long it takes to boil water and cook the pasta. That's what, maybe 20 minutes? I had leftover pasta on hand and it took me about 10 minutes to make. I love a quick dinner fix. This would be a great recipe if you do Meatless Monday at your house. If you'd like some meat in it, just add diced chicken. I've done that before and it's delish!! Please share if you try this.
