So, my sister-in-law told me about this recipe, and I just had to make it. She came over with some filets mignon, and I defrosted some venison cutlets, and then I turned this 30-minute meal into more like a 100-minute meal! But, before you navigate away from my blog forever, just give me a moment to defend Rachael Ray. Yes, perhaps she is a bit too commercial these days, with the dog food and the Dunkin' Donuts, but the truth is that she has a lot of creative recipes that are straightforward and delicious. And admit it, if Dunkin' Donuts offered you untold bazillions of dollars, you'd take the money and run even if it made you look a little silly. I know I would!!! Here's a link to the wonderful, albeit awkwardly-named dish:
One thing that I like about these recipes is that they both use methods that I would not have come up on my own. Making pasta sauce out of roasted cherry tomatoes and garlic, with herbs, cheese and pasta cooking water? Sounds crazy, but it was crazy good. And pan frying steaks, then topping them with herbs and blue cheese to finish in the oven? Even better than the pasta! So don't be anti-Rachael, just try this dish!
