The final outcome ... dinner in a ramekin! I'm going to call this a weird Mediterranean shepard's pie for now ... except that if I put a crust on it you wouldn't see the ingredients, but I could have piped the potato on it and then baked it so it would get that nice crust. See my previous post for the recipe.

Mis-en-place for reduction pasta sauce for tortellini. OMG it smells so good. Red onion, carrots, garlic, crushed fresh tomato, red wine, fresh thyme, rosemary, basil from my garden plus bay leaf & crushed black pepper -- all simmered in a little extra virgin olive oil. The other ingredients to be added later -- spinach, grated parmesan and a little sun dried tomato pesto.

Well here you go, folks. I hit it out of the ballpark with this recipe. Jackie Goofball Pasta test for the Jackie Jimenez RIP memorial service. It's so good OMG the lemon zest with the black pepper and the walnut oil plus the tarragon, chives, cream, butter, parmegiano reggiano & walnuts ... I used some of the pasta water to develop the sauce and the cheese/cream stuck to the pasta perfectly. Our muse Jackie Jimenez  inspired me!

Don't have time to cook from scratch? Repurpose food from Whole Foods Market ... I was inspired by my friend Stephanie Quilao of Vibrantly who sometimes creates recipes from the cold/hot food bar.  Seen here: mushrooms and bell peppers from the hot bar, dill, scallion and carrots from the cold bar. Sautéed and then I added my own fresh kale, slivered garlic, thyme, salt and pepper, plus pecans. So good!

Hoppin' John fusion creole/Spanish south mix ... this was very easy to make and quite tasty. One can of Margaret Holmes hoppin' john (basically black-eyed peas, tomatoes, onions and jalapeños). Add the can to pre-sautéed chopped red onions, slivered garlic, about a tbsp or two of chopped Spanish chorizo and fresh chopped rosemary. Let the juice from the can reduce. Serve over rice.
