Mama Emily's Pasta RecipePosted on 2007.10.17 at 09:33
One box of your favorite pasta (I always used linguini)
One jar of your favorite pasta sauce (I used TJ’s Garlic and Basil Marinara) SO GOOD!
½ of a red bell pepper
½ of a green bell pepper
1 jalapeño pepper
½ red onion
2-3 Roma tomatoes
Some olive oil
Salt and pepper
Crushed red pepper
Garlic (crushed cloves or garlic powder)
And if you wanna be saucy about it:
Grill up a whole chicken breast. Make sure you get all of the fat off beforehand. Rub a LITTLE bit of the Asian garlic crushed red pepper sauce on the outside of the chicken breast, some basil, salt and pepper and grill it up SLOWLY until it’s tender on the inside, but grilled on the outside so it gives it a nice texture with the soft pasta.
When you turn on the gas to heat up the water, start Slowly grilling your chicken making sure it doesn’t get seared too quickly. You should also be dicing your peppers, onion, and tomatoes at this time. Do not get rid of the inside of the tomato because that will combine with the sauce. Put some olive oil in the water for the pasta. When the water starts boiling, add your pasta. In a separate smaller pan, add a tiny bit of olive oil and water, your chopped peppers, onion, and tomatoes with some basil, salt, pepper, and oregano. Mix that all together and cook at a very low heat. To make the chicken grilled on the outside, put the lid of a pan on top of it to trap the air. Once the chicken is done, put it on a cutting board and cut it into strips. Once your pasta is done, drain it in a colander, put enough pasta sauce on the bottom of the pot your pasta was cooking in, add some basil, garlic, oregano, and crushed red pepper, your chicken, and then re-add the cooked pasta. Mix it all together and get yo’self some BREAD!
So GOOD I want it right now! I just seriously made myself hungry. J
