Chicken Spaghetti Casserole

Chicken Spaghetti Casserole
Chicken Spaghetti Casserole When I asked Facebook fans the other day about the possibility of me posting a new casserole recipe, I received an overwhelming response. It seems that there are a lot of casserole-lovers out there! I live in San Diego- not really the Casserole Capital of America. People here eat grilled chicken, tofu hot dogs and salad with no dressing. Casseroles are among the evils that aren’t spoken here in SoCal. This is quite the cheesy casserole, and I mean that in a good way. Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe. Boil the pasta, just so it’s kinda al dente (still has a slight bite to it). Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a pan. Cook the veggies in that melted butter, just until they’re a little bit softened up. Mix nonfat milk with fat-free cream of mushroom soup. Pour that sauce into the veggies. Mix it up. Add cheese. It melts into the sauce nicely. Mix in chopped, cooked chicken and the pasta. Add some tabasco for flavah. Pour it into a greased baking dish. More cheese. Related:  FoodChicken - Curry

Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp, Asparagus and Basil Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp, Asparagus & Basil When I was first married (16 years ago), I worked full-time as an elementary school teacher. I was up and out the door by 7am, and I didn’t get home until about 6. A pretty normal work schedule, I guess you could say. Here’s the how-to for making Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp, Asparagus & Basil: Here are all the ingredients you need- plus a little white wine & Parmesan. Heat up a little bit of olive oil in a large saute pan. Add in the minced garlic that I love so much. Chopped, fresh tomatoes will add some great color to this dish. Asparagus ends are added next. Add a few glugs of white wine. A little salt too. The vegetables are sauteed in the white wine to help soften then up and bring all of the flavors together. The (softer) asparagus tips are then added in. Shrimp! Add a chunk of butter to the sauce. You certainly can add any pasta you’d like, but I prefer to use the fresh angel hair type (find it near the fresh tortellini at your market).

Honey Glazed Chicken and Bacon Bites I had an idea. Actually, it was more like my three hundred and forty-sixth idea for this month and I now have the hips to show for it. No biggie, I consider it a small sacrifice for eating food that tastes this good. So I asked myself: “Would it be a really crazy idea to wrap loads of bacon around chicken strips and brush them with a spruced up honey marinade?”. See, now that’s what happens when you blog from your desolated home or kitchen (in the burbs). Anyway, it turned out nothing short of a phenomenal idea that I simply have to share here in my little corner of the www. Ingredients: 1 pound boneless chicken breasts 20 thin bacon slices 3 tbsp honey 2 tsp coarse mustard fresh lemon juice Optional: salt Directions: Cut the chicken breasts—or fillets, as we call them here—in thin strips. Note: I’m using the Dutch equivalent to bacon in this recipe. Grab a bowl and combine 3 tbsp honey with 2 tsp coarse mustard. Squeeze in some lemon juice. Bacon rights all the wrongs in this world.

Lasagna bolognese with béchamel « Snixy Kitchen I love lasagna – layers upon layers of rich, decadent sauce, cheese, and pasta that offer up different flavors with each bite. What I don’t love about most lasagna is cooked ricotta cheese. It tastes like chalk when baked and is a colossal mistake when layered into one of the most savory comfort foods in the world. This lasagna recipe I’m sharing below is TO. DIE. It takes some dedication to make, but the result is more than worth it. I made this particular batch in preparation for the ski trip to Tahoe last weekend to share with a cabin full of friends. Since I didn’t have enough room in my tiny freezer for three large casserole dishes, I spent some time debating and researching whether it would be better to a) bake it immediately, store it in the refrigerator for three days all wrapped up tight, and then reheat it in the oven at the cabin, or b) leave it unbaked, store it in the fridge, and bake it up there. Lasagna Bolognese (Adapted from Mario Batali) Serves 8-10 Ragù Béchamel Lasagna

Thermomix Apple Crumble Recipe This all-time favourite makes the whole family happy: Thermomix Apple Crumble is so easy to prepare that you can even get the kids involved, and it will certainly put a smile on dad's face! And who doesn't like apple crumble? Being such a traditional dessert, I find it perfect to serve to guests, especially when I invite new friends over and I'm not sure about what they do or don't like. Actually, many different kinds of fruit can be substituted for apples, and you can base your choice on whatever's in season, like peaches, plums and berries in the summer or pears in the autumn. Sometimes, I like to sprinkle berries on the top of my apples to make it more interesting, but something you really want to do, is serve your Thermomix Apple Crumble with Thermomix Custard or Thermomix Vanilla Ice-Cream. Ingredients For the apple filling - 350 gr Peeled, Cored and Quartered Apples - 30 gr Butter - 25 gr Brown Sugar - 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon Let's make our Apple Crumble Recipe Preheat oven to 160º C.

Garlic-Lime Chicken I’m flirting with going vegetarian. I’m reading up on different kinds of grains, beans and legumes. I dream about finding joy in bowls full of greens. I constantly (weekly) ask my husband if he thinks he could go meat-free (the answers are always inconclusive -or- NO). But for now, I’ll try and focus on eating healthier meats. Like chicken. If you’re anything like me, you eat a TON of chicken. I think chicken is the healthiest lean protein to eat (aside from fish – but I’m not in Seattle here) and one of the cheapest to get all natural, free range, or organic. This is where I run into problems. Here’s one that’s great. Garlic-Lime Chicken Adapted from All Recipes 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1/8 teaspoon paprika 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/8 teaspoon onion powder 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves 1.

Margarita Mac and Cheese Margarita Mac and Cheese I have great memories of macaroni and cheese. As a kid, most of the time my mom served me the Kraft variety (which I still love…shh…), but on special occasions, my mom went all out and made homemade baked macaroni and cheese. The recipe came from an old Betty Crocker cookbook and is still one of my favorite dishes that my mom makes. When I got married and moved out, my mom actually searched ebay to buy me the exact same Betty Crocker cookbook that she always cooked from, and macaroni and cheese was the very first recipe I made. Of course, even the best recipes can be made just a little bit better. Of course I started with my beloved Betty Crocker recipe, but with a few alterations. I was asked to create a recipe for the 30 Days 30 Ways with Macaroni and Cheese blog with my own twist on macaroni and cheese.
