Pasta Linguine Bonita, Simple and Delicious

Pasta has got to be one, if not thee most versatile dish there is. Every culture has a form of pasta, that’s how incredibly versatile pasta can be. My Pasta linguine Bonita will become an instant classic in your kitchen.

Pasta

Simple yet full of flavor.

This pasta is reminiscent of New Orleans to me, my home away from home, my birth place. We all know that New Orleans is a culinary mecca in its own right. And I am so glad, I watched and paid close attention to all the flavors I tasted growing up in New Orleans.

First are the flavors, three simple ingredients that are the foundation to this luscious pasta…

  • Onion (in this case I used Vidallia)
  • Garlic
  • Celery

This would be called the Trinity. Now, some may use bell peppers in place of garlic and vice versa. For pasta dishes I usually always go with the onion, garlic, and celery version of the Trinity. And for a dish like Gumbo I would use the bell peppers in place of the garlic. Just a little lesson on the New Orleans flavors for you.

The garlic does give it that classic Italian flavor as well.

You will start off by making a spice mix that you can use again and again it’s a combo of;

  • Garlic powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Creole seasoning (Tony Chachere’s)
  • White pepper
  • Ground mustard

You will have enough of this lovely seasoning mix for a few dinners you’re welcome.

Get your grocery list out now and add to it

  • Chile’s in adobo sauce ( can be found in the Hispanic food aisle in all groceries stores)
  • Andouille sausage
  • Shrimp (preferably wild-caught, not farm raised)
  • White wine (Riesling is a good one)
  • Heavy cream
  • Tomato sauce
  • Mini Tri-colored sweet peppers
  • Lemon
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Linguine pasta
  • Fresh thyme

Once you have gathered all your ingredients it’s quite simple to mash-up all the flavors together.

Preparation of the ingredients took about 20 minutes and cook time about 25. Not too bad for a delectable ensemble of a dish.

Pasta

  • The first juice is my infamous beet, pomegranate and cherry juice 🥤 If you are looking for a full gut cleanse, well baby this is it. Make absolutely no plans for the evening after drinking two glasses of this😂 .
.

The second juice is spinach, apple and ginger, delicious is an understatement to this drink. Cheers to good health!
  • The level of cold it is outside simply makes no sense at all! I don’t get folks who believe in global warming, How Sway!?! How? .

Ok, lemme stop ranting and talk about this pot of delicious ova here. Vegan Roasted Veggie Pasta! It was so simple just use a pasta made with no eggs, season, (I used one pack of  sazon to flavor up) and roast zucchini, butternut squash, grape tomatoes and onions on 425 for about 15 minutes. Cook pasta, drain, reserve some of the pasta water about half of it, add vegan butter (soy free kind) canned fire roasted tomatoes and one vegetable bouillon cube. This will be your sauce. Take about 3 tablespoons of the sauce, add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, stir until combined and add back into the sauce (this is to thicken up the sauce). Add pasta back in, add roasted veggies stir add some oregano, salt and pepper to taste adjust seasoning if you need to, squeeze a lemon wedge to finish it off and boom 💥
  • Ginger, Fennel, Orange = Medicine. Slice the ginger thin, cut your oranges in segments, julienne your fennel and squeeze the leftover orange parts for the juices. And my friends you have created a tasty bowl of pure cold-flu fighting medicine.
  • This was two years ago today, thanks Facebook for the reminder. I’m excited to do a few of these this season and I absolutely love seeing the varieties that are made from my beloved hometown New Orleans 💚💜💛 Happy Kings Day!
  • Divine is an understatement of how delicious this salad was. Arugula has a mildly spicy taste, it’s also known as rocket in some countries. Whatever you choose to call it these tasty green leaves instantly elevates a salad. Not to mention sweet pomegranate seeds and blackberries add texture and natural sweetness. Oh! And the dressing! To live for! Swipe for the recipe🥗 .

  • Instead of adding croutons to your salad, add salad to your crouton. Genius! A simple spring mixed salad with sweet grape tomatoes on top of a buttery- toasted pecorino romano cheese crusted bread. Drizzle your salad with your fave vinaigrette, salt & pepper and enjoy 😉. Bonita, Bonita, Bonita...
  • Check out my story for this wonderful pasta dish! It’s was the bomb! I used @raoshomemade sweet eggplant sauce, so that saved me some cooking time. .
.

The pasta shell is stuffed with a sweet Italian sausage-mushroom ricotta-mozzarella filling, on top of a herbed Panko crusted eggplant. Parmesan and basil topped off with more sauce, the family was pleased 😄 #nobsfood
