Farfalle In Herbed Tomato And Walnut Sauce

Farfalle In Herbed Tomato And Walnut Sauce

Last year I had done a series - Let's Play With Herbs, in which I had used fresh herbs, this time I had gone to the Foodhall,
I picked up bottles of dried herbs. So the first thing that came in my mind was I need to cook Pasta. Just few days I gone for an sumptuous Italian Buffet, so Pasta was still lingering on my mind ;)

I have got this really interesting seasoning, it is called Jamaican Jerk Seasoning, besides sugar and salt, it consists onion, thyme, chives, nutmeg, black pepper, all spice, cinnamon and red chilli. So I have used this and other than this I used Oregano, Rosemary and Red Chilli Flakes and fresh Parsley.
I have also added the flavor of roasted Walnuts, which gives a brilliant taste.
By the end of this dish, I was really happy with the look and the taste of the dish prepared. Hope you like it too :)

Had gone to Out Of The Blue with my friends for an Italian Spread  Buffet

To make this pasta, I have cooked bell peppers separately and then added them in the sauce.
Bell pepper, also known as sweet pepper or a pepper and capsicum. Beautiful Cooked Sweet Peppers

Bell Peppers don't require heavy cooking, you just need to cook them for a minute or two.

I have taken one Bell Pepper of each color and then slit them long.

To Cook -

Add Olive Oil in a pan, add Bell Peppers, toss it slightly in oil. Add salt and black pepper powder and sauté it for a minute or two. 

How To Boil Pasta - 

Uncooked Pasta

To cook Pasta, you need to boil 6-8 cups of water in a pan, depending on the quantity, if more, add more water, you should give it enough space and water to cook well. Add salt to taste. When water reaches boiling point, add oil - olive or any cooking oil and then add pasta.
Cook it well till it is almost cooked. Be careful, it should not be over - cooked.
After it is cooked, drain the water with the help of a strainer and run cold tap water over it.
If you are going it use it later, then toss little oil and mix it well. Be careful, it should spoil the shape of pasta.
