I made this recipe up last night – and it was A-MAH-ZINGGGG! I had some various veggies, condiments, etc in the fridge and I just made a pile and started chopping. I love the Orecchiette pasta because the little “ears” hold the goodies you mix with them. It’s really good with cheesy sauces also.
I had a variety of things available. Pepperoncini is something we always have in the house, we eat them at the side of almost every meal. Mushrooms I love, so does my daughter -Hubby and the boy, not so much – so I slice them large enough for everyone to see and pick out or savor as needed. The tomato I had was kind of mealy – so I scooped out the middle and the seeds and just used the outside. It was a good use for this fairly inferior winter fruit – it came in my vegetable basket so I felt compelled to use it somehow. I never buy tomatoes in the winter if I can help it.
Like I said, this concoction is pretty easy to throw together, and can be very versatile – give it a try!
