Those silky mother fuckers have done it again!!
Another excellent recipe.
Silky roasted bell pepper pasta with zucchini and basil ribbons. Hell yeah.
It was quite easy too. Especially if you don’t mind chopping. It can be quite therapeutic once you get going, can’t it? chop chop bitches, chop chop.
Or you can totally cheat and use a machine. (Not that I’m saying I’d EVER do that. ahem. cough cough)
I was just so excited to have an excuse to use my food processor! I got a secondhand one for my birthday last year from my amazing cousin, and I use that biatch all the time.
The food processor, not my cousin. Obvs.
But even cooler than that, I went to the local Health Food Store…The old HFS…Which can stand for many things in this house…Herbivores For Sure! Her Freaky Salads. Herpes For Sally. and so on…and I located nootch and Silken Tofu.(It’s the small joys in life people)
I’m sure if you live somewhere in the States it’s much easier to find the ingredients. Usually the Thugs are good at telling you ‘it’s on the same shelf as the…’ or ‘don’t freak out, it’s in the same aisle as the -insert random ingredient here- stop whining before you’ve even looked.’ that sorta thing. I paraphrase, but you know I’m telling you the truth. Let them Thugs guide your asses, they know what they is talking about. YouknowwhatI’msayin?!
Anyhoo, after roasting these bad boys in the oven:
I threw it all together as per the instructions.
(Sorta looks like a block of feta cheese, doesn’t it?)
(Don’t worry – No feta was harmed in the making of this tasty grub.)
A minute later we had a sauce that looked like this:
Mmm mmm mmm!
We threw together some pasta (I used spinach pasta because the green went well with the zucchini and basil), mixed it all together, and then went to town on that Silky bitch.
All the plates were clean.
But there were legit leftovers, just like the Thugs promised.
And if there’s one thing I’ve learnt about those smooth talking bastards, it’s that they honour their word.
