Description

This pasta requires only 8 simple ingredients and takes 30 minutes to prepare. Al dente pasta is served with lightly caramelized poblano peppers and onions. The pasta and vegetables are tossed in a sauce made from blended chiles, cream, and spices for flavor-packed meal. The sauce is thick and creamy and perfectly accents the flavors of the onions, peppers, and pasta. A sprinkle of goat cheese finishes the dish off perfectly and brings it all together. The leftovers warm up nicely, so you can pack the extra for lunch tomorrow.

Ingredients

  • 250 grams short-cut pasta
  • 2 poblano chilies (roasted, peeled, seeded, and in strips)
  • 1/2 red onion (sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon chicken-flavored soup powder
  • ground cumin
  • goat cheese (crumbled)

Directions

  1. Cook the pasta al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, saute 1/4 of the poblano chili strips and the onion until the onion is transparent.

  4. Add to the pasta and cook for 5 minutes to bring out the flavor.
