I didn't want to make a post just for announcing the giveaway winner, without recipe, that's why I've been absent for quite some time. I've been very busy and I haven't had the time for posting until today. Sorry for that. First of all, I guess you're all anxious (more or less...) to know the name of the winner of the Le Creuset giveaway. I'm acompanying the reveal with another of my very famous traditional Spanish recipes... yes, I have one of those high-self-esteem-days...
First things first: after substracting all the comments from people who were not interested in the giveaway and also the ones living outside USA and Canada, congratulations to Sinful Southern Sweets! You're the lucky one. The people from CSN Stores will soon contact you to send you your ramekins!
And now to the recipe. Pisto manchego is a thick and chunky sauce, made with a mixture of stir-fried vegetables and originating from the region of La Mancha (where Don Quixote was born and Manchego cheese is made...). It's easy to make and healthy, similar to the French ratatouille and absolutely nothing to do with Italian pesto! It's used as accompaniment in a lot of dishes, like grilled meat and eggs or even pasta, and also as filling for empanadillas. It's a staple in my household and it never lasts for very long... I'm giving you my take on pisto:
Yields 6 servings
You can enjoy it by a tasty Spanish tortilla like me... no, the recipe for Spanish tortilla will come soon, but only if you behave yourselves...
