Last night Hubby and I went through the same script we've been having for years.
"What do you want to do for dinner?"
"I could make pasta....."
(Then Hubby threw me for a loop.)
"How about pasta in a white sauce with a serrano pepper?"
"I could.....I guess. Seeds or no seeds?"
Wow. Hubby is hardcore when it comes to hot peppers.
I didn't think this would turn out very good. It just didn't sound right. But I'll try anything once.
I didn't have time to look up a recipe so I just went to work.
I started the water for the pasta. In a saucepan, I melted some butter, added olive oil, cut up a really big serrano pepper and put it in the butter to start cooking. Then I added chopped green onions, garlic salt, black pepper, cream and parmesan cheese.
I cooked the pasta, put it back in the pan, poured the sauce over it, dished it into a bowl and added a little more parmesan.
It was delicious!
Hubby named the dish Serrano-biata.
Warning: Serrano Peppers are feaking hot! Tread carefully. I would try them without the seeds first. And always wash your hands after cutting them.
