Blogging Marathon# 34: Week 1/ Day 1
Theme: Cooking with Capsicum/ Peppers
Dish: Roasted Red Pepper & Pistachio Pesto with Cheese Ravioli
Its time to start this month’s Blogging Marathon, BM# 34. My theme for this week is ‘Cooking with Capsicum/ Pepper’. I use bell peppers a lot in my cooking either to make a curry or sambar or add them to rice dishes. So when I saw the theme, I thought I should try making some new dishes with peppers.
For the first day, I’m using store-bought roasted red peppers from the jar. You could roast your peppers if you have the time, but store bought ones are just as good to make this dish. Recipe is from America’s Test Kitchen.
Here pesto is made with roasted red peppers, toasted pistachios and the usual pesto ingredients, parmesan, olive oil and garlic. This can be used as a pasta sauce or as a sandwich spread or even a dip for some crudites and bread.
