Peppers... the Love-Hate Tango.

Peppers... love them, or hate them?  I've got a spicy love affair with green peppers that's been sizzling in my culinary repertoire.  If you've been following along with my master creations, er... um... I mean my made up recipe escapades, then you know these vibrant green beauties have a tendency to salsa their way into many of my gastronomic concoctions.   

Now, I'll admit, I'm not always the most adventurous eater, but when my husband strolled in with a bag of peppers from a coworker, I thought, 'Challenge accepted!  What can I whip up?'   

So, this recipe came to life because our fridge was suddenly pepper-packed.  But honestly, I could use some help here.  We received a motley crew of peppers: green, Hungarian, and a mix of fiery red, orange, and crimson that I suspect are chili peppers.  I mean, they're like a spicy rainbow, right?  

I took a close-up pic of these peppers just to get a better look.  There's even a tiny green pepper in the mix that's trying to pass as a chili pepper.  Sneaky little guy. 

Now, here's the kicker: My husband's friend explained that the redder the pepper, the hotter it gets.  So, in the name of culinary science, I braved a piece of red pepper and expected fireworks.  But no, it was surprisingly tame.  The ones that hang out in the middle of the green-to-red spectrum?  They're like sweet little surprises.  One thing's for sure: I've been having a blast whipping up recipes with spicy fellows.  

With all these peppers at my disposal, I decided to take a break from the usual and dive back into pasta land.  Here's what you'll need to embark on this pepper-infused culinary journey: 

Spicy Pepper Pasta 

  1. Peppers, I used 1 Hungarian pepper, and 3 chili peppers (one green, one red, one orangish), and one large green pepper, all thinly sliced and into small pieces
  2. 1/2 large white onion, diced
  3. 1 pound ground turkey, cooked and drained 
  4. 1 package of chickpea pasta prepared 
  5. 1 c shredded cheese, I used Monterey Jack cheese
  6. 2 T almond milk (you can use regular milk too)
  7. 2 T butter 

  • In a skillet, cook the ground turkey with a pinch of salt and pepper until it's no longer pink
  • Slice and dice the peppers and onion, then throw them into the turkey party and cook it all up
  • White the peppers and turkey are mingling, boil some water and cook the pasta as directed on box
  • Drain it and add to the turkey-pepper fiesta
  • Stir in the milk, butter, and cheese until the cheese gets all melty 
  • Serve up a spicy, cheesy, and wholesome delight! 

My husband gifted me ceramic knives one
Christmas, and let mt tell you, they're sharp. They make dicing things into teeny tiny pieces a breeze. But don't underestimate them, they're like the ninjas of the kitchen!

When I embarked on creating this recipe, it was like a culinary rhapsody in my head.  I had a hankering for Mac and Cheese but decided to invite ground turkey to the party, and of course, let the peppers steal the limelight.  And the result?  A symphony of flavors that'll have your taste buds dancing the Ch-Cha.  Let us know if you decide to give this recipe a try, it was mighty tasty and very flavorful.

    1. We love chickpea pasta, after we went low glycemic, I stumbled upon it, and we think it is delicious. It has been a lot of fun coming up with new recipes over the past few months.
