Simple to put together with a gourmet finish. An interesting twist on a Southern favorite. My own creation.

Directions

  1. Combine ingredients. Best with lots of black pepper, in my opinion.
  2. Orange flavor will get stronger as it sits in the fridge. Zesting all the peel from the 1/2 orange will make the orange flavor rather strong, especially if you plan to refrigerate before serving.
  3. If you don't have a zester, crosshatch an area of orange peel with light cuts from a sharp knife, then "shave" the pieces off. It's very easy and with heavy crosshatching yields results comparable to using a good zester.

Now here's a great new way to serve pasta! Absolutely delicious! I did include the optional bell pepper, scallions & garlic powder, but did leave out the paprika! A very, very nice keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chef in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
