Recipes around the globe tried

Orecchiette with eggplant and peppers

 It was a holiday today…and this week again I decided to try by blogger friend’s recipes as I am feeling lazy inventing and writing recipes and want some adventure in my kitchen and this recipe is just too wonderful. I love Italian dishes and I love to know more about them and so I decided to cook
“Orecchiette with sweet peppers and eggplants ” by  +Loretta Sebastiani
the link to the recipe
Orecchitte with eggplant and peppers
The dish was amazing but I had to learn making Orecchiette at home which is a special ear shaped pasta made of semolina and flour.
I had even managed to get the exotic ingredient capers here ,thanks to my husband. I could not get fillets of  anchovies instead added some fish sausages. I followed her recipe very diligently and result was a dish full of flavors and beautiful looking ..kids favorite and guilt free too without cheese. But it tastes best with lots of grated cheese. This week I made it twice. Thanks to Loretta for sharing this beautiful recipe…I am going to make more of these with the other sauces as well.
