Pasta with Oil & Spices


So rather than go to the store yesterday after work for some fancy-pants ingredients needed for a new dish, I went for a run instead. 

There will be no running today in this rain, so new dish will be tonight. 

Last night I made Rhys's favorite pasta, which I've shared here before but it's worth revisiting. And, there's a picture this time! 

Cook 1 lb of mostaccioli (this will feed an army, so cut in half if you're not feeding, well, an army).
Once the pasta is cooked and drained, return it to the pot and add 1/4 cup of EVOO. Add a little more if all the pasta isn't nicely covered with oil. 

Add a lot of oregano, about 2 tbsp but adjust to taste. Add black pepper, about 1 tbsp. 

Top with crushed red pepper to taste, depending how spicy you like it. And that's it!

Rose's Roasted Red Potatoes

We had a pork chop repeat last night as the main course, but this is quite possibly my favorite side dish: About 3 lbs red potatoes, wash and dice into bite-size pieces. Do not peel the skins. Heat your oven to 400 Put the diced potatoes in a large baking dish (13x9), and add about 1/4 cup of EVOO (enough to cover all of them but not soaking) Season with oregano (lots, like 2-3 tbsp), garlic powder, black pepper, and a little kosher salt. Stir that all around so they're evenly seasoned. Bake for about an hour and stir them a couple times during that hour. When the potatoes are soft and you can cut right through them, they're ready. Simple but delicious and works with nearly any chicken/steak/pork dish!

Weekend Edition - Bad@ss Enchiladas

So over the weekend (Client name redacted) got tweeted about by the President, and the (state name redacted) governor got in a public spat with the (agency name redacted) over (client name redacted)'s (solution redacted), so last night I was not cooking!  However, on Saturday I made something brand new, which I am dubbing "Bad@ss Enchiladas." Without further ado... Take 2-4 chicken breasts and put them in a slow cooker (grease the slow cooker with olive oil), season both sides with cumin, paprika, chili powder, and some garlic (I used minced fresh garlic but garlic powder would work too). Cook them on high for 6 hours, and when they're done, shred them with a big fork. When the chicken is close to done, dice 1 zucchini, 1/2 bell pepper, 1/4 onion and sautee in EVOO with those same spices mentioned above. When the veggies are softened, add a can of (rinsed/drained) black beans. Stir. At the same time, or thereabouts, make the enchilada sauce: 3

Chipotle

That's right, I ordered Chipotle for pick up last night! And it was delicious.  With (client name redacted) being crazy town there was no time for cooking, but I did make it to the store this morning so we'll be back on track tonight!
