Directions

  1. *NOTE: original recipe specified 1 tablespoon chili powder.
  2. Leave the dried pasta in the bag and using a rolling pin, crush the pasta until it is 1/8"-1/4" long.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the pasta; stirring constantly until light browned, approximately 4-5 minutes.
  4. In another small pan, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and lightly saute the red bell pepper until softened.
  5. Place the white onion, garlic, tomatoes, oregano and jalapeno in a blender and puree until smoothe. Add the puree to the fideos pasta, then add the broth (or water) and the red bell pepper. Stir only a few times.
  6. Cover pan and cook over low heat 10 minutes or until all moisture is absorbed.
  7. Fluff with a fork, transfer to a serving platter and top with the cheese and parsley.
