Bell pepper and crumbs spaghetti

Hey guys! Did you know? A couple of days ago it was my birthday! Yep, my birthday is on the international woman’s day, the 8th of march. It may looks like a blessing but actually is not…have you ever tryied to book a restaurant or a club in that day? Is not easy at all, and if you succeed you have to deal with overpriced menu.
Btw I’ve spent a really happy birthday, me and my bf went to my mom’s house to have a lunch with her, and she made that wonderful and delicious vegetarian meatloaf made with dried tomatoes, lentils and walnuts and some baked potatoes . It was so delicious, when se gave me the recipe I’ll definitely share that with you.

In the evening luckly we went to my favourite sushi restaurant (yes, the one in my previous post) Β and we had an amazing dinner.

Anyway, this post is about something else. Again pasta. And the funny part is that I don’t even like pasta that much. Ahahah. But my bf does, and I’m italian, so I try always to create some new recipes for him, and for me as well. Actually, I really liked this one, is crunchy an full of flavor.

Cut the bell pepper in little pieces, heat a large pan, add some olive oil and fry the garlic clove. Add the bell pepper and fry until is soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside and bring some salted water to a boil. Now cut the tomatoes in pieces, put it in na bowl and season with minced garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil. After some minutes heat a grille, and grill the tomatoes for a couple of minutes per side. Cook the spaghetti for some minute less than usual ( for me, they requires 9 minutes but I’ve drained after 7).
On the same grille that you’ve used for tomatoes, put the bread crums, some olive oil, chili flakes and basil and fry until the texture is crispy and Β the bread is golden brown.

Add the tomatoes and the spaghetti in the bell pepper pan, with a couple of tablespoons of cooking water and cook them together until everithing is ready. Add some feta cheese and the bread crumbs on top.

See you soon πŸ™‚
