Linguine Peperonata with Toasted Rosemary Breadcrumbs

Linguine Peperonata with Toasted Rosemary Breadcrumbs

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

To make this peperonata kid-friendly, we held the onions.
  • 2 Tbs. plus ½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 3 Tbs. olive oil, divided
  • 2 ½ tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary, divided
  • 3 bell peppers (red, yellow, orange)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)
  • ⅛ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 6 oz. fresh linguine pasta, strands halved
  • 2 Tbs. white wine vinegar

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine 2 Tbs. Parmesan, breadcrumbs, 1 Tbs. oil, and 11/4 tsp. rosemary on small baking sheet; season with salt and pepper, if desired. Toast 7 minutes, or until topping is golden. Stir to blend; set aside.

2. Slice tops and bottoms from bell peppers to make 3-inch-thick rings. Remove core and seeds from pepper rings, then slice rings vertically into 1/4-inch-wide strips.

3. Heat remaining 2 Tbs. oil in skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, red pepper flakes, and remaining 11/4 tsp. rosemary. Stir 30 seconds. Add bell pepper strips, and sauté 5 minutes, or until just tender.

4. Meanwhile, cook linguine according to package directions for al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid.

5. Toss linguine, 1/2 cup reserved cooking liquid or more if necessary, vinegar, and remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan with bell peppers in skillet. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Divide pasta among 4 plates, and sprinkle each with 
2 Tbs. crumb topping.

Hi Cassandra, Parmesan made with vegetable rennet is available. For example, Trader Joe's shredded Parmesan is made with vegetable rennet, and they provide source info for the rennet used in all of their cheeses. Hope this helps!

Why is this recipe on VT? Parmesan is not vegetarian! You could at least suggest a good veggie parmesan alternative.
