Summer Recipe Challenge

Ever since starting my food blog I’ve gotten to meet some amazing food bloggers from all over the world.

thetipsyhousewife in collaboration with Chateau Dumplings, a Czech potato dumpling company from Chicago invited me and a few other food blfoggers to participate in their online summer recipe challenge.

The rules were simple; create a delicious recipe including Chateau mini potato dumplings, using not more than 15 ingredients and 30 minutes cooking time .

I decided to keep it pretty simple and make a favorite of ours. Pancetta, peas in a light cream sauce.

Recipe

Ingredients:

Chateau Dumplings

Pancetta (cubed)

Frozen Peas

Small Tomatoes (halved)

1/3 cup heavy cream

1/3 cup chicken broth

Salt and Pepper to taste

Chopped Garlic

 

Instructions

In a medium heat pan sauté the cubed pancetta until crispy. Add chopped garlic and cooked until translucent. Put pancetta and garlic aside. In same pan add tomatoes until they start to soften up.

Lower heat to low and add chicken broth and heavy cream. Stir until liquids marry and slightly bubble. Return pancetta and peas to the pan and mix everything together.

Meanwhile boil dumplings in salted water for 5 minutes. *Dumplings will float to the surface once they’re done. Drain and put in serving bowl.

Pour the pancetta and peas mix on top of the dumplings and serve!

**For extra flavor and texture I like sautéing the dumplings in a pan with a little bit of butter or olive oil after boiling them.
