Cream of peppers, oregano and parmigiano…

Cream of peppers, oregano and parmigiano…



  1. Place oil and shallots in a frying pan and sauté gently making sure shallots don’t brown (as they become bitter).
  2. Add the peppers and sauté until very tender; if the mix becomes too dry add some boiling water (a glass will do).
  3. Season to taste (please remember that extra salt will go in with the parmigiano, so don’t overdo it).
  4. Place the sauce in a food processor and blitz to a cream, add the oregano.

To cook the pasta: 

  1.  Use a large capacity pan and bring to the boil 4 litres of water, add salt and then the pasta.
  2. The golden rule for cooking pasta properly is to use 1 litre of water for every 100 gr of pasta! 
  3. Don’t bother adding ANY oil (it has better uses) to prevent pasta from sticking: it is the quantity of water and regular stirring that will ensure pasta doesn’t stick.
  4. Place the sauce on the drained pasta, stir well and add plenty of grated parmigiano. 
  5. You may wish to add a splash of extra virgin olive oil. 
  6. Serve at once and enjoy this most flavoursome, light and inexpensive dish.
  7. This is a wonderfully tasty sauce and its creamy consistency makes it ideal with the penne: some (but crucially not all) of the sauce finding its way into each penna!

    Sounds yummy!! That's good advice about the pasta. My son is learning to cook dinners, but often forgets to stir. 🙂
