INGREDIENTS:

1 lb wheat penne pasta
1 cup roasted red peppers
1/2 cup sweet chili peppers
1/2 baby bella mushrooms
3/4 cup baby spinach
1/4 cup oregano *see benefits below
2 cups diced tomatoes

DIRECTIONS:

In large pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil.  Once water is at boiling temperature add in 2 tbsp of kosher salt, throw in your pasta - cook around 8-12 minutes, and drain in colander standing in sink. 


While pasta is cooking, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add oil to pan, swirl to coat. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in mushrooms, roasted red peppers, chili peppers and cook for around 2 minutes.  Lastly, add tomatoes, capers, and spinach cook for another 2 minutes. 

Once pasta is ready, turn off heat and remove a cup of the pasta cooking water from pot and set aside. *We will use this later to adjust the thickness consistency of the sauce.

Remove the sauce mixture from heat, stir in cooked pasta, 1/2 cup feta, 1/2 cup -1 cup pasta cooking water, CANNABIS OLIVE OIL, salt and pepper.  Mix well making certain batch is evenly infused! Sprinkle finished pasta dishes evenly with remaining 1/4 cup of feta.

WEED SCIENCE TIP : 

The Happy Chef Fact : Some research suggests that diet can influence your cannabis experience. 

- In a 2011 study, researchers found that a lack of Omega-3 fats in a person's body lowered the medical effects of cannabis.  Most diets practiced in the United States are high in Omega-6 fats, not Omega-3 fats.  Without Omega-3 fats, the receptors in a person's brain that absorb the compounds in cannabis don't function properly.  Therefore relaying that a lack of Omega-3 fats means a patient, or consumer, won't receive the full effects from cannabis. 

terpenoid known as beta caryophyllene or b-caryophyllene that is found in cannabis is also found in oregano and black pepper, which are two ingredients listed in this recipe. Adding strains higher in b-caryophyllene will likely influence your cannabis experience as the ingredients act as a multiplier due to the added potencies from the oregano and black pepper.  So eating healthy may actually add to your high life! (:

Known Strains High in Caryophyllene : 
& also GREAT STRAINS to pair with this dish : OG Kush, Bubba Kush, Girl Scout Cookie GSC, Gorilla Glue #4, Tangerine Dream, Bubble Gum, Sage N Sour, Liberty Haze, Pineapple Express, Hash Plant
*LOOK FOR THE LAB TEST ON PRODUCT TO CONFIRM COMPOUND POTENCIES.

Medical Value of beta caryophyllene : Anti-inflammatory; good for arthritisgastro-protective, ulcers, autoimmune disorders, and other gastrointestinal complications


Therapeutic attributes of Caryophyllene :

Analgesic - Relieves pain

Anti-Bacterial - Slows bacterial growth
