I do not have an iPad or iPhone, but I did get to try the wonderful Bertolli Olive Oil. It is so nice and easy to use. You can use it in many recipes, and I even liked it with a little seasoning then dipping bread in it. Fantastic. Here is a recipe that you might like to try from the iPad app with the olive oil:
FRESH FETTUCCINE WITH CRISPY PANCETTA, SAUTEED MUSHROOM AND CHERRY TOMATO
by Chef Fabio Viviani
Serves 2, double ingredients for 4 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
2 cups cherry tomatoes (20 small), halved and seeded
2 Tbsp. Bertolli® Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
2 ounces pancetta or bacon, diced
1 Tbsp. Bertolli® Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil
4 to 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
12 ounces oyster mushrooms, very thinly sliced
1/2 cup chicken broth, divided
8 ounces fresh fettuccine
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
Shaved Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 475°. Drizzle tomatoes with Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste. Arrange in baking pan and roast 5 to 10 minutes or until wilted.
Sauté pancetta with Bertolli Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil over medium-high heat until crisp. Season with fresh ground black pepper and very little salt. Add garlic and mushrooms and sauté until golden brown.
Add roasted tomatoes and 1/4 cup broth to sauté pan. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered.
Add fettuccini to boiling water over high heat, stirring occasionally until it floats, approx. 5 to 8 minutes.
Add cooked fettuccine to sauté pan and remaining broth. Increase heat and drizzle with Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add parsley. Simmer 2 to 5 minutes.
Top with shaved Parmesan and serve.
Mmmm, that sounds delicious. This is a recipe that I would definitely make for my family. If this is a sampling of the Let's Cook app, then it will be a great app.
