PAPRIKA PASTA AND MEATBALLS

2nd Man recently threw this meal together (I keep telling him he should try out for "Chopped" on Food Network, ha).  He made some homemade pasta and decided to add some Spanish Smoked Paprika to the dough.  

It made a gorgeous looking pasta...

Paprika Pasta
Such a smokey flavor and definitely a beautiful color...


While the dough was 'resting', he made some meatballs, sautéed them in a skillet with peppers and tomatoes and onions...

...and just ladled it over the pasta, sprinkled some Parmesan shavings on top and we were ready to eat.  It was so good and seemed like a great Autumn/Winter dish.

I think everyone has just about said it all. 2nd man is sure making some beautiful meals. He can come a throw a meal together for me anytime. I bet chili would be good on his smoked paprika pasta too.

Mm, is it possible for cooking smells to slither down the lines of cyberspace and land on one's desk??
Well it did! :)

It was really good. And this Spanish smoked is such a good strong flavor, smoky and lovely. He usually just makes it up as he goes along but i'll pin him down to a recipe next time he does it. :-)

1st Man said...

ALWAYS!!!

1st Man said...

Come on down! I can't guarantee leftovers however....LOL!

1st Man said...

Thank you (and coming from your amazing food, that's a very big thank you).

1st Man said...

It was a random thought he had and it turned out so good. I am not sure how much he used, it might be possible to overdo it I suppose, but it's fun to experiment.

1st Man said...

HA! Thank you, I will pass along the compliment, he'll appreciate it.

1st Man said...

Aww, thanks! He does love to cook. Of course his job keeps him working long hours so if he had more time no telling what he could come up with, ha.

1st Man said...

Another sweet comment, thank you! Oh my, chili and pasta like that, wow, that does sound good. I will pass that suggestion along!!

1st Man said...

Thanks, it was good for sure. :-)

1st Man said...

Actually, wouldn't that be cool? Thanks for the kind words.
