So returns the food snob with a recipe I keep meaning to share!
So I first tried this spaghetti at a baby shower. I wasn’t sure what it was but was intrigued by the aroma of poblano peppers. I served myself some with whatever else was being offered. And fell immediately in love. I asked around “what is this?” to which my cousin Miros replied “Crazy chic, its green spaghetti”. Ok I don’t recall the exact conversation but it definitely left an impression. So months passed and I was craving something. This often happens to me and I may not recall what the item is called that I am craving. So pinpointing what I'm craving can be quite challenging. And it finally came to me, it was the green spaghetti. SO I searched for my phone to ask Miros for the recipe. She didn’t know it but directed me to ask our aunt Norma. My aunt gave me her recipe and I ran out for all the required ingredients. As I raced to the store I was savoring what was to come……
After making the green spaghetti…. I started imagining what I can combine with this dish. Or how can I put my own twist on it. And thus was born “Thank you for getting knocked up pasta” or TYFGKUP for short! HA!
You will require the following:
6-8 Poblano Pepper
1+ Serrano pepper(optional depending on spice level desired)
Heavy Cream-Small container whatever size that is
Box (16oz) Spaghetti
Salt/Pepper to taste
Parmesan Cheese to top off
Roast them, peal outer skin, remove stem and seeds. This step is my least favorite and possibly the reason why I don’t make Chile Rellenos often. Refer to chile relleno recipe for detailed step by step.
Meanwhile put some water to boil for your pasta.
Pictured below are a pic of them roasting and after I did all that darn work….. but so worth it!
After Chiles are done toss them in the blender with the salt, pepper, garlic clove, one chicken bouillon cube/tablespoon and the heavy cream. Blend! After sauce was made I cooked my shrimp. And added my sauce to the shrimp and brought it to a simmer. Slow simmer. No overcooking shrimp over here.
Once spaghetti was cooked I drained it and added the sauce/shrimp to the pasta!
ps this post is a bit rusty as the only writing I have done lately has been addressed to Tom Riddle aka my diary!
