Week 24: Pasta With Bell Pepper

The Recipe
Olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
150g bacon, sliced
2 large bell peppers, diced
1 can (400g) tomatoes
1dl white wine (optional)
1dl cream (optional)
50g cashew nuts

Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, warm the oil in a pot. Add onions, garlic and bacon and cook for about 5 minutes while stirring. Add bell peppers and cook for another 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes, white wine and cream and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer under lid for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and cook for another 15'ish minutes until the sauce has reduced to your liking. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add cashew nuts and cook for another 5 minutes.

Add pasta to the pot. Stir and serve.

The Verdict
Really good in all its simplicity. I added chili cream cheese to my serving which I think improved it GREATLY - so next time I might just add it straight to the pot.
