So, I haven't blogged in a little while because I have been editing a full version of How Not To Cook with MamaDB. Instead of our "snippets" which are about 2 minutes in length, the full version is a whopping 10 minutes.
Here is the recipe we were attempting:
Pine Nut Paradise Pasta
Source: Sunset Magazine
- 1 LB Mushrooms (finely chopped)
- 1 t(easpoon) Basil
- 1 t Oregano
- 1/3 c(up) Pine Nuts
- 1 medium Onion (finely chopped)
- 4 c Broccoli Flowerettes (chopped)
- 1 small Red Bell Pepper (chopped)
- 4 cloves Garlic (finely chopped)
- Angel Hair Pasta
- 1 1/2 c regular Vegetable Broth
- 1 T(ablespoon) Salad Oil
Step 1: In frying pan, stir pine nuts over medium heat until golden (~8 minutes); Pour from pan and set aside
Step 2: In pan, combine finely chopped mushrooms, onion, garlic, oil, basi and oregano
Step 3: Cover pan and cook on HIGH, stirring often, until liquid appears
Step 4: Uncover pan and stir until vegetables are lightly browned (~8 minutes)
Step 5: Add chopped broccoli, bell pepper and broth, and bring to a boil
Step 6: Cover pan and cook until broccoli is just tender when pierced (~5 minutes)
Step 7: Pour pasta into a large shallow bowl, and pour cooked vegetables and juices into bowl.
Step 8: Sprinkle with roasted pine nuts and parmesan. Salt and pepper to taste.
We doubled the recipe in some parts and only added a 1/2 more in other areas giving us an interesting yet still delicious outcome.
We also added Garlic Bread and a Salad.
Here are the ingredients of the salad:
- Sping Mix Salad
- Gorgonzola Cheese
- Balsalmic Vinegrette Spritzer
- 1/3 Apple-Pear (Asian Pears are better)
- Glazed Pecans
