Sometimes, there’s no recipe. You just pick the first thing in the shop aisle and the first thing in your cupboard and the first thing in your fridge. You never know what you’re going to get.
I received this goodie box from Simonsberg yesterday. Feta, Cream cheese, Camembert and Simonzola. I don’t really like cheese as is, so I’ll have to cook with these delicacies. And quickly. I’m afraid to say last time I got a goodie box from them the brie went off before I could use it. Don’t stone me please!
Kassler and Feta Pasta
200g of wholewheat pasta – I used linguine
4 smoked Kassler steaks
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
50-100ml of white wine
1 tomato, cubed
handful of chopped fresh or frozen peppers
half a round of feta, crumbled
1 tbs of cream cheese
pinch of herbs
Cook the pasta until it’s ready. Trust yourself. This isn’t so hard. Fry the Kassler steaks in a pan until seared and golden. Then cut them up into bits.
Fry the garlic, tomato and peppers in the pan with the Kassler fat for about 5 minutes.Add the wine at the end and let it cook away.
Drain the pasta and return to the pot, or a serving dish. Add the Kassler bits and tomato mix to the pot. Mix it all up. Add the cream cheese, feta and herbs. Mix it all up and give the feta a chance to melt a little. If it’s being stubborn, pop your plate in the microwave like I did.
This was great Wednesday-night-at-home-alone food.
