Goat’s Cheese, Roasted Pepper & Basil Pasta

June 24th, 2008 · 3 Comments

This recipe involved the dazzling debut of our latest item of kitchen equipment – a Black Iron Omelette Pan bought for the bargain price of £7.60. It came from Dentons Catering Equipment Ltd – a magnificent shop crammed with professional quality cooking gear and definitely worth a pilgrimage – providing you can tolerate the multitude of cityboy urban tossers infesting Clapham.

    Finally made it onto your site. I’ve been on here for ages now. Haven’t had dinner yet and all this is making my mouth water. I’ve written down the recipe for this pasta dish and I’m going to have a stab at it tomorrow…

    Hi Mrs Ergül
    The peppers should take 15 – 20 minutes, but check on them from time to time.
