Harvest Survival Food - The Perfect Pasta

We are pastaholics. We would eat pasta every day if we could. The following recipe is our favourite pasta dish. This meal is a lot of fun at a dinner party because your guests can make their own pasta according to their tastes.

Ingredients:

Spaghettini  

Feta cheese

Shredded Parmesan cheese

Shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)

Toasted pine nuts

Jill's Jalapeño Peppers or hot pepper flakes (OR BOTH!)

Roasted Tomatoes* (recipe below)  

 

Cook pasta. Put bowls of all of the other ingredients on the table. Pile the pasta with generous helpings of each ingredient, including some of the oil from the peppers and tomatoes. Toss and enjoy! *If you use cheddar you can microwave to melt the cheese if desired. 

*Roasted Tomatoes

Cut Cherry tomatoes in half and place on oiled foil on cookie sheet. Roast at 325ºF until they are firm and chewy. Pack in canola oil and store in the fridge or freezer.
