Oysters Louisiana

Oysters are great and served in many dishes.. Here's a nice old time oyster recipe!

1  doz. oysters and liquid
3 tbs. butter
1/4 red bell pepper minced
1/2 med onion minced
3 tbs. flour
Cayenne pepper
Salt and Pepper
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

In a small pot add oysters and oyster liquid, simmer stirring for 5 minutes. Season, stir, remove and drain liquid (save liquid). Put drained oysters in a medium sized casserole. In the same pot melt butter, add bell pepper and onion, simmer a few minutes. Add flour and stir. Put oyster liquor in a 2 cup measure and add enough water to make about 1-1/2 cups of liquid. Add liquid to pot, mix well and bring to a boil for 2 minutes stirring. Pour over oysters, add cheese and bake in 350ºF oven for 15 minutes.

This would go well with a little angel hair pasta and fresh spinach.
