Creamy Poblano Pasta Recipe

Serves: 4 Portions
Prep time: 45 mim +-

Ingredients:

  • Pasta of your choice (I used Spaghetti)
  • 3 or 4 Poblano Peppers (roasted, peeled and seeds removed)
  • Chicken boullion Cube or 1 tbsp chicken bouillon in powder
  • 1 cup of Media Crema Nestle OR Heavy Cream 35% OR  Greek Yogurt for a light version
  • 1/3 cup of milk (optional)
  • 1 tbsp canola oil or butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 minced garlic
  • Salt Pepper to taste

Preparation:

1. Cooked pasta according to package instructions.

2. Roast Poblano Peppers and when roasted from all sides, place them in plastic bag for about 10 min, then remove skin and seeds.

3. Place in a blender the poblano peppers, cream, milk and chicken bouillon, mix well and set a side.

4. Heat a large skillet and add the canola or butter, chopped onion and garlic and cook until onion is transparent. Add the creamy salsa and let it simmer for about 5 min (taste it and if need salt, add to your liking) add the pasta and mix well.

Buen Provecho ! Enjoy !

Notes:

  1. I love cooking with media crema nestle, but sometime is difficult to find it here in Montreal, so in those days i ran out of media crema nestle I use Heavy Cream 35% (brand Québon) and when I use greek yogurt I like Liberté brand.
  2.  Also you can add Grilled Chicken, you will love the mix of poblano pepper and chicken.
  3. If the creamy sauce starts crumbling add pasta water as you need in order to loosen it up a bit.
  4. If you want, you also can add cheese of your choice.

  1. I’ve recently been getting into cooking a lot more recently. My favorite food is Mexican food, so I definitely can appreciate this post. This should prove to be a great meal that I could make for my wife this week. I think I’ll even add grilled chicken as you suggested in your notes. Thanks!

    1. I’m happy to read and know you are getting into the cooking adventure ! I love the idea of you cooking for your wife ! I’d like to know how it all went and if she enjoyed the creamy poblano pasta and yes, definitely chicken is a great option for the poblano pasta, I like to marinated the chicken breast with a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper and splash of lime (let it marinate for about 30 min) aand grill it for 6 min each side. Hope this help you !

      Thank you for passing by Kyler Brown !
