This recipe used to be part of the Entrees section at the Whispering Canyon’s Menu. Admittedly I didn’t try it there as I was fixated on munching through the Skillet and more. The option was ideal as you didn’t need any KETCHUP!!
The recipe is a little complicated but once broken down in to sections is easy to follow.

Roasted Poblano Pepper
Sounds Great. & posh until you realise that Asda only had thin Chillies or Red Chillies. So I opted for a mild red chilli.
The method here was to stick a fork in it cover in Olive oil and salt. Then hold over a gas hob until blackened. This allows the skin to be peeled off. You then scrape the skin off discard the seeds and chop finely the warm red flesh.

This meal is delicious and full of depth. There are a lot of step involved, but definitely worth the effort. The Rigatoni worked well with the chunky vegetables I used. The Sauce had a slight kick to it, which I believe came from the blackening powder. This recipe served 2 Adults, but they were very hungry adults!
