Edible Art: Tony Stark’s Seductively Good Arc Reactor Pasta

Kitchen Overlord Iron Man Pasta Recipe

There’s more to life than good schwarma. Inspire your own home team of Avengers with Tony’s own artfully narcissistic pasta dish. Represent the rest of the team with a spinach and kale smoothie as green as the Hulk, some moussaka for Hawkeye’s smooth purple and black look, or an uberpartiotic edible version of Captain America’s Shield.

Tony Stark’s Seductively Good Arc Reactor Pasta Recipe:

1/2 pound fettuccine noodles
1 jar roasted red bell peppers, sliced into strips
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup flour
round slice of mozzarella cheese (optional)

Sometimes you have to follow the rules, so cook the pasta according to package directions.Other times, you have to follow your own path, like making your own Alfredo sauce from scratch. Start by melting your butter in a saucepan over a medium heat.When the butter is completely melted, whisk in the flour. Beat it like an alien invader until it’s as smooth as you are.Pour the milk into the battle. Whisk it until all lumps are defeated.

Add the white pepper, salt, garlic, and Parmesan cheese. Put the pan back on a medium heat, because everyone sweats a little when you walk in the room.

Keep stirring the mix until everything melts like a woman succumbing to your charms. When the sauce is as thick and eager as you like, let it cool down for a few minutes. It never pays to look easy.

When you’re ready to take this sauce to the next level, first set the scene. Twirl the cooked pasta into a neat circle in the middle of your plate.

Pour a quarter cup of Alfredo sauce over the pasta until it glows as whitely as your Arc Reactor. If it’s not white enough, cut a circle of mozzarella cheese and lay it on top of the pasta.

Arrange a neat circle of roasted red bell pepper strips around the mound of pasta.

Admire your creativity before opening a bottle of Pinot Noir to share.

This is best served after a press conference, product unveiling, or the defeat of anyone stupid enough to attack New York City. Enjoy it with supermodels, personal assistants, or fellow superheroes.

  • I love your recipes, but I have noticed you seem to fall into the same trap as most of the food industry, that of assuming that all vegetarians like bell peppers, when in fact they are HATEFUL and VILE and you can’t just pick them out because you can TASTE WHEN THEY’VE SO MUCH AS BEEN WITHIN A FOOT OF WHAT YOU’RE EATING AAAAAARGH.

    So, um, yeah. FYI.

      I adore red bell peppers, Valerie. My use of them has nothing to do with cooking for vegetarians and everything to do with rocking an awesome flavor. I put them on burgers as well as pasta. I get you hate them. I feel the same way about broccoli, which is a darn shame since the entire rest of the world seems to love the nasty stuff. I assure you, using them here was based entirely on making a tasty dish look Tony Stakr-tastic.
