I came up with the idea of this tagliatelle prawns in tomato and pepper sauce when I was wondering what to do with an abundance of tomatoes and peppers I had left over from various other dishes I’d been making.
Nah that would seem the obvious choice. Salad? Eh, no, whilst I love salads, it’s colder here now and I want something warming and comforting.
Hmmm, some kind of sauce? OK yeah but not just a basic tomato sauce, maybe a bit sweeter than usual….hmmm, sauté everything and chuck it in a food processor, add some cumin…oh yes, that’s it!
I used dried tagliatelle for this tagliatelle prawns in tomato and pepper sauce recipe, as I didn’t have time to make my own pasta.
Lynne and I had a fantastic day out in The Lomonds on Saturday, despite me being sceptical about the weather as I mentioned previously.
We DID actually manage to see off the top of both East Lomond and West Lomond and had some fantastic views over the Fife countryside!!
So, instead of a recipe on Thursday, I’ll be bring you the best of those photographs in another of our active lifestyle posts! 🙂
