Fettuccine in Rosa Sauce.

wpid-wp-1441895219559.jpg    Hello again.

You may wandered what did I do with all these cherry tomatoes in the oven, well they were very ripe and tender so this what you do…

I baked the whole tomatoes with one chili pepper, sweet yellow pepper, garlic,rosemary, oregano,salt and olive oil alongside the cake till all tender and a thick sauce is out. I then mixed all together in the blender.

Used this sauce with some fresh mushrooms,pesto and fresh cooking cream as sauce for fettuccine.
Sprinkle with Parmesan and oregano when served.

Easy simple end of the week lunch.

Summery Watermelon Salad.

Hello everybody.

Back to normal life routine today, went grocery shopping and kitchen started buzzing after a three day vacation.

Since it’s extremely hot and nobody wants to eat something hot or heavy after eating in restaurants past couple of days one feels so full right?
Well end result for lunch was this amazingly cool salad which consists of watermelon cubes, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and sprinkled with green onions, mints and lemon slices, I then added a drizzle of pomegranate sauce and olive oil. Really yummy.

I also made some pasta with white cheese and parsley and tacos. All very delicious.
