Chipotle Alfredo Pasta

Chipotle Alfredo Pasta

There are a lot of things that I miss from Ohio, but when it comes to cooking there’s one that is almost driving me crazy, the tiny kitchen of the apartment I am sharing right now. Supposedly, it was just upgraded, and don’t get me wrong, the new cabinets and tile are gorgeous, but the person who planned the layout clearly is not a cook. It’s almost impossible to cook there, well, at least as much as I am used to cooking. And don’t even get me started with the “ecological” stove…

That’s why when I cook there I try to make very simple dishes that don’t require a lot of preparation of cooking. I decided that for more complicated dishes I will go to my parents’ house and use their kitchen. Besides, I’ve been cooking just for one, and that’s not a lot of fun, is it? Today I just prepared a very simple lunch that turned out to amazingly delicious. I will be making it for my parents soon to get the seal of approval. But I am sure they are going to love it.

  • What a great combo of flavors! I'm feeling your pain over that kitchen. My house before this one had a poorly laidd out design. I suffered through it for years..

  • I bet your parents love that new kitchen, since they now have you cooking for them more. Good take on an old standard here, very creative.

  • […] to the stove), but I dream of a day not-so-far-off when I will have the space to make things like Chipotle & Rosemary Alfredo and Potato-Stuffed Acorn Squash. However, for today I am “settling” (hardly) with these […]

  • Ben… you always impress. And this time, my friend, you'ev even outdone yourself! I love it. As for working in a crappy little kitchen. My mantra for years was "I HATE this kitchen". Now I have a beautiful one, but I still look back fondly on amazing feasts I managed to cook up. Thanks for sharing the story and the awesome dish with Presto Pasta Nights.
