Pasta with Bell Peppers, Feta Cheese, and Balsamico Vinegar

29 Jan

Hello people,

this isn’t much of a recipe, but definitively the most interesting thing we had for dinner this week, and also, in order to stick to my promise to myself to blog once a week, yadda yadda yadda, I’ll just post this, here we go.

Ingredients:
serves 3-4

about a pound of the pasta of your choice

4 bell peppers, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
dried basil leaves (use fresh, if you have it)
olive oil

2 tbsps. orange juice
3 tbsps. balsamico vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

about 1/2 pound feta cheese, roughly chopped

Directions:

Cook the pasta.

Meanwhile, heat about 2 tbsps. olive oil in a large pan. Add the pepper slices and fry them slowly over medium heat until soft. Add the garlic and basil leaves to taste; stir. Add the orange juice and vinegar, stir, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat immediately. Season with salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, combine the drained pasta and the pepper mix. Sprinkle with feta cheese. Serve with wine and a green salad. Enjoy!

On a completely different note: I squeezed the most beautiful oranges this morning. They were so pretty I was almost sorry to turn them into juice!

A little bit of sunshine on this grey, grey day.
Have a good weekend! Don’t forget to eat, and drink, and be merry.
xoxo, F.
