A note about serious food allergies

Peperonata sounds like a fancy pepperoni, but not so! It is sweet peppers cooked in olive oil. (It can also be tomatoes, onion, garlic, and herbs, or served hot or cold.) Thus ends the dictionary portion of this meal description. Onto the flavors: peppers, onion, garlic, pesto, tomatoes… and delightful, rich delightful, rich tortellini mixed right in. Nothing fancy, nothing overwhelming, just plain delicious.

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If adding protein, pat dry, season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and cook with 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. If using diced chicken breasts, stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using Impossible burger, break up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes. If using flank steak, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. If using shrimp, cook until shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. Add to pasta as desired.

    Make the Sauce

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add onion and red bell pepper to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender, 4-6 minutes.
