Rajas (Roasted Poblano Cream Sauce) with Pasta


It’s snowing! (Bah…it’s snowing.) Winter is one of my love/hate thangs. On the plus side is warm comfort food, like pasta and cheese. Rajas is a creamy mixture of roasted chiles, fresh corn, onions, crema and cheese. It makes a great taco filling or side dish. I am lucky to have chile roasters at the farmers market and in local grocery stores, making these really easy to make. I transformed rajas into a one pot meal by adding campanelle pasta, more cream and some diced green apple for a tart crunch. It tastes like a smoky, warm chile mac ‘n cheese. Next time, bacon!
