I wanted to pair Paper Roses with this chili recipe I have, but I can’t find the recipe book ANYWHERE. Oh well, when I find the cookbook, I’ll post it. Until then, I have a different recipe for you all.
Thoughts Before Cooking:
I found this recipe out of a Good Housekeeping magazine, August 2016 issue. It is low-calorie, healthy, and vegetarian. I had to tweak the recipe a bit as I didn’t like some of the ingredients.
- 1 Pint of Grape Tomatoes
- 2 Large Summer Squash
- 1 Small Red Onion
- 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
- 8 oz of Whole-Wheat Fusilli (Or a pasta of your choice: I used Campanelle)
- 1/4 Cup of Pecorino Cheese (Can be substituted by Parmesan)
- 1/2 Cup of Part-Skim Ricotta or Cottage Cheese (I did cottage as I hate ricotta cheese)
- Prepare the pasta according to package directions.
- While the pasta is cooking, slice the grape tomatoes in half.
- Chop the squash into 1/4 an inch pieces
- Slice the onion.
- Toss the vegetables, olive oil, and salt in a bowl; then arrange on a rimmed baking sheet.
- Bake at 450 degrees F for ten minutes
- Remove the sheet and rotate, baking for ten more minutes.
- Toss vegetables, pasta, and 1/4 cup of the Pecorino or Parmesan cheese.
- Dollop with ricotta or cottage cheese and garnish with basil. Serves ~ 4
Thoughts After Cooking:
I loved it!
In fact just reading this makes me want to make it again…and eat it all.
