.......and I thought we'd only see 'throwing on the barbecue' type food once heading away from town and out into
the Kakadu wilderness....the real Australian bush country!
This was a favorite of mine (I don't eat meat)...and in a
hotel dining room no less. I snapped the menu description
with my iPhone to remind me of the ingredients,
then worked to replicate in my kitchen recently.
Their version was a bit better because they added some
type of tasty sauce I believe, however mine was
healthier for lack of it!
Bob doesn't like dry dishes so if I make this again
I will add a little veggie broth to the skillet perhaps.
This cook book, The Roasted Vegetable is great, the roasting timing chart handy, recipes yummy.
Cooked and drained mini penne, which was all I had in the cupboard, but it worked well. In a large skillet I heated a little olive oil, added a bag of washed and dried baby spinach and allowed it to wilt, threw in the warm penne. Tossed in a small log, cut into chunks, of Trader Joe's fresh goat cheese with black olives, stirred gently until heated through, then added the pumpkin cubes (which I first reheated in the micro because they had cooled off). Plated scattered with a wee bit of fresh grated Parmesan cheese, and more fresh ground pepper - we're off the salt these days. It was very good.......next day leftovers even better perhaps because I did add a dash of heavy cream........and I gobbled it all for lunch.......
..... while Bob indulged himself with a KFC sandwich, enough said!!!
