Made pasta with bacon, tomato and pecorino for dinner this evening

Ingredients

- 6 ripe medium tomatoes

- 3 tbsp butter

- 6 slices bacon, roughly chopped

- 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped

- 1 red onion, chopped

- 3 garlic cloves, chopped

- 1tbsp chopped fresh thyme

- kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

- 1 tsp chopped fresh tarragon

- 1 lb orecchiette

- 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

- 4 oz. grated pecorino romano cheese

 

Directions:

1. Chop tomatoes roughly.

2. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until it is crispy, about 5mins. Add the jalapeños, onion and garlic, and cook over medium heat for 10mins. or until nicely caramelized.

3. Add the tomatoes and thyme to the pan, then season to taste with salt and pepper and add the tarragon. Turn the heat down very low to keep the sauce warm while you make the pasta.

4. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the orecchiette and cook until just al dente, 6 to 8mins. Drain the pasta, return it to the pot and add the sauce. Stir to combine then drizzle with olive oil. Cook over medium-high heat for 2mins. Mix in the pecorino and serve.

Made a #Tasty #Vegetarian #Chili :)

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive (or vegetable) oil
2 medium onions, diced
1 medium green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and finely diced
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed through a garlic press
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1½ teaspoons ground coriander
¾ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
2 (15-ounce) cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 cup of Gardein beefless ground (I've tried many meat substitutes and this one actually tastes great! I couldn't tell it wasn't real meat, Delicious!)

Garnishes: lime wedges, sour cream, cheddar cheese, scallions, red onion, cilantro

Directions:

1. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Stir in the onions, bell pepper, garlic, and spices and sauté, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened and beginning to brown, about 10 minutes.

2. Add the tomatoes, beans, salt, and soy sauce. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring the chili to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cook, covered, at a low simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally. If the chili is too thin, cook uncovered until it’s your preferred consistency. Serve with the garnishes.

Have a great #FriskyFriday everyone
