Updated Post with new video!
I hope this finds you well!
This is one of my original posts, a perfect dish to have in the fridge for the never ending snacks and meals required when everyone is staying at home.
I have just added a video, my third. Apart from only filming half of my head I seem to be getting the hang of it!
As we are just getting to know each other, I want to share all my absolutely favorite, foolproof, you will love me and be so impressed, recipes with you. I also have, however, to warn you about my tendency to vagueness. This pasta dish is a perfect example.
but it works with beef, pork or chicken. The individual parts can also be made ahead, and transported in Ziplock bags if you are bringing the dish to a potluck ( and hopefully those days will be back soon). When you are ready to assemble the pasta, you can you can do so in a matter of minutes. Afterwards, any leftover pasta keeps really well and makes a great grab and go lunch. What more can you ask of a recipe?
I also like to serve the pasta on a large platter, rather than a bowl, the colors of the green pasta, roasted vegetables and creamy white feta make it really attractive.
And the thorny question of quantities? I am going to try to give some guidance, since we are just getting acquainted. If I am serving more than one side dish, I use a small bag of Trader Joes orzo pasta for twenty people. On its own, that bag would easily feed ten. So, if you want enough for five to six people, half a small bag of pasta would be perfect.
Add enough pesto to cover the pasta completely. For a whole bag of pasta, a small container of fresh pesto is usually enough. I love the large jar from Costco. Less stressful. However, If you want a treat and to support local business, pick up a tub from my favorite Cheese Shop in Goodwives (and maybe their feta too), when you are collecting your Easter Cheese!
Thank you ANN!
