Quick Meal Deal: Fall Harvest

November 21, 2011 Leave a comment

I’m a fan of seasonal eating so was pleased to see that my favorite pasta stand at Eastern Market whipped up some beautiful pumpkin fettuccine for the fall.   I added a little butter, salt and olive oil to the orange ribbons for this quick  meal.  My appetizer was deviled eggs with capers – random pairing, but needed a quick protein.    Enjoyed the ribbons of pasta with a side of broccoli.

I didn’t time it but the eggs were the most time consuming part of the dish – takes 10-12 minutes for them to cook, a quick ice bath to cool them down, then a few minutes to mix in mayo, capers and dill.   The pasta took about 3 minutes and the fresh broccoli steams in under 5 minutes.
