Pinterest Recipe Review: Southwest Pasta with Poblano Cream Sauce

Recently, I found the picture below on Pinterest and thought this recipe sounded delicious. I thought it would be the perfect compliment to the brisket the Boy had on the Traeger, and whipped it up last night. Since then I have had tons of you asking for the recipe.

The recipe comes from the Cook Like a Champion blog.

This is what my finished product looked liked.  

I didn't include the black beans since the Boy isn't a fan of them. 

The meal was pretty good but I think it could use a few tweaks. Also, as the original recipe mentions the heat definitely builds, but I think the heat came more from the Rotel rather than the poblano peppers. Something you might consider if you make the recipe is switching out the Rotel for cherry tomatoes and some jalepenos. I felt that the salad didn't have a fresh enough taste and I think that might help. Also, I used can corn. Next time I am going to try and find fresh or I'll do frozen, to give it a "fresher" taste. 

Overall, I would give this recipe a B+, but I think I'll give it another shot with a few of my teaks. 


  1. This looks good! My husband doesn't like spicy, but can usually handle poblanos. Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. You had me at poblano peppers, this does look pretty good! I might give it a whirl and add in some more veggies.

    1. Definitely, keep me updated! Maybe together we can create the ultimate recipe!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from all my readers. Hope you have a fabulous day.
