today's featured recipe
Made with a combination of jalapeño, poblano and red bell peppers and Mexican-inspired flavors like cumin, garlic, lime and cilantro, this easy, one-pan pasta dish features a unique method of preparation. Angel hair pasta is broken into short lengths, and toasted in oil, then simmered in a broth mixture until the liquid is absorbed. Topped with a dollop of crema (or sour cream) flavored with lime juice and chopped cilantro and garnished with a few slices of avocado, the dish makes a robustly flavored meatless dinner.
