taste of the mediterranean

i have to share a meal i made this evening with all of you. i happen to love Greek and Mediterranean flavors. salty and full of flavor. i also happen to love Italian food, so tonight i made a recipe from myrecipes.com.

Antipasto-Style Penne

Looks tasty right? I substituted chicken for the prosciutto. One, because I can never find the stuff, and two, I have a husband who doesn't eat "strange" food, or wants to try new things... He did enjoy the meal though, after picking thru anything red for fear it was a tomato. :)

This is a super easy recipe to make, and pretty quick. I just served some bread with it, but those broccoli spears look pretty tasty, or even a side salad would be nice with it.

Fact: This was my 1st time to make my own roasted red peppers. Very simple, and very delish! Might just start doing that from now on. Plus its kinda fun to peel off the "roasted" part.
