Bringing you heart healthy recipes twice weekly can be a little daunting at times. I know that people love meat and potatoes. When I was a kid if meat and potatoes were not on the table it just didn’t seem like a meal. But the more I study nutrition, and the latest research from plant based medical doctors, the more I shy away from the norm. So this week something a little different from the kitchens of “Real Simple” Enjoy this Italian dish and try a meatless night once a week.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 pound Campanella or penne pasta
  • 4 red or orange bell peppers, seeded and cut into quarters
  • ¾ cup pitted kalamata olives
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped roasted almonds
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • kosher salt and black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve ¼ cup of the cooking water; drain the pasta and return it to the pot.
  2. Meanwhile, heat broiler. Place the peppers on a baking sheet skin-side up and broil until blackened, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Scrape the charred skin from the peppers with a paring knife and wipe clean with paper towels.. Cut the flesh into 1-inch pieces.
  4. Add the peppers, olives, almonds, oil, thyme, 2 tablespoons of the reserved cooking water, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper to the pasta and toss to combine (add more cooking water as needed to loosen the sauce).
