  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips

  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian herbs or herbes de Provence

  • 15 cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

On a large heavy baking sheet, toss all of the vegetables with the oil, salt, pepper, and dried herbs to coat. Transfer half of the vegetable mixture to another heavy large baking sheet and arrange evenly over the baking sheets. Bake until the carrots are tender and the vegetables begin to brown, stirring after the first 10 minutes, about 20 minutes total.

 

Toss the pasta with the vegetable mixtures in a large bowl to combine. Toss with the cherry

tomatoes and enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten. Season the pasta with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and serve immediately

PASTA WITH CLAMS

Ingredients:

  • Salt

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 5 to 6 anchovies

  • 1 pint small cherry tomatoes

  • 1 red onion, finely chopped

  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 2 stems oregano, leaves stripped and finely chopped

  • A handful flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

  • Black pepper

  • 1 cup dry white wine

  • 3 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces

  • 3 pounds Manilla clams, scru

 

Directions:

Heat extra-virgin olive oil over medium to medium-high heat. Add anchovies and melt into oil. Add tomatoes, onions and garlic to the pan, season with crushed red pepper flakes, oregano, parsley and pepper, saute until the tomatoes and onions are soft, 8 to 10 minutes.

 

Add wine and reduce for 1 or 2 minutes, melt butter into sauce and add clams to pot. Cover the pot and cook clams until they open, 6 to 7 minutes.

 

Remove any unopened clams and add pasta to the pan. Toss with sauce for about 2 to 3 minutes so the pasta absorbs the flavors. Add basil to pasta and taste to adjust seasonings.
