Whoa! Sorry for the sudden disappearance for a few weeks. I’m still alive Mom! Things have been really crazy over here and work has been in crisis mode. I’m back now and things are going to be really exciting here with some big changes coming in the next couple weeks!
Anyway, lets move on to todays recipe. I recently had a break in my crazy work schedule and was able to carve out a few hours to have a nice night with some good friends. I have been eating really healthy lately and wanted to make something with fresh summer veggies and not much else. I went with these gnocchi made out of roasted cauliflower instead of potatoes and dressed them in a light sauce of roasted tomato, broccoli rabe, garlic, and olive oil. These tasted light and summery but also super savory and filling at the same time. This dinner combined with a fun night with friends was exactly what I needed to get over my long work week.
I had lots of mortadella leftover from my meat slicer party, and here is just another fun way I used it up. What I enjoyed about this pasta was the creamy mustard flavor, and also the fact that the pasta and all the ingredients were similarly sized. You could just sort of shovel it all into your mouth and get all the different ingredients in each bite. Shovel-able is a great attribute for any pasta dish.
I had some co-workers over for a quick bite on the way out to a “Team Building Event” (bar crawl). Had to stick to veggies because one is vegetarian, but I wanted to make something light anyways. I needed it to be really delicious because these people cook my recipes at Cafe Burrito every day and I wanted to show them that I was good at cooking other types of food too. I decided on making a simple cauliflower and chickpea curry and rolling it into some fresh rolls. I made a quick yogurt raita as a dipping sauce and the rolls were a big success.

I think this idea came from an old episode of Iron Chef where Bobby Flay cooks some pasta in jalapeno juice. One of my favorite things to cook with jalapeno is bacon, and it seems to be a very popular thing these days. There is even jalapeno crusted bacon in the grocery store! You would think that this dish is all bold intense flavors, but it actually came out more subtle and perfectly balanced. Boiling the pasta in jalapeno juice didn’t give it a crazy spicy taste, but rather imparted the true jalapeno flavor with just a little bit of the heat that it is so well known for. This was a fairly easy dish with unique and delicious flavors that I would highly suggest anyone who has a juicer to make immediately.
