Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Making Spaghetti………………

To cook spaghetti is simple. Put the pasta into plenty of boiling water, stir it, bring it to a simmer, turn the heat off, put a lid on and leave it to finish cooking for 10-12 mins. This method works perfectly fine every time.

For your Sauce, If you’re using a plain tomato (marinara) sauce, stir in seasonings to add extra flavor. Red pepper flakes, dehydrated or fresh garlic, dried oregano, parsley, or basil, or an Italian seasoning blend are all good options.

Thank you Pattie M. for passing this hint along………

Take your pasta off the stove just a tinge before al dente. When you pour it into the colander, quickly pop the pot back below to catch the water. The steam will keep the noodles hot and stop them from sticking.

Chicken Parmigiana and Texas Toast (Light)

Today’s Menu: Chicken Parmigiana and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. I was up and out the door by 6:50 this morning. Partly sunny and 42 degrees out today. I went to Meijer for me and Mom and for an elderly neighbor. As I said before I like going early, get what I need, and get out before it starts getting crowded. Picked up Breakfast for Mom and our neighbor at McDonald’s. Back home dropped off our neighbor’s groceries and her McDonald’s. Not a lot going on. Just did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Chicken Parmigiana and Texas Toast (Light).

 

While at Meijer I picked up a Michael Angelo’s Chicken Parmigiana. I was looking for something for Dinner tonight and I came across the Michael Angelo’s Chicken Parmigiana. The picture on the box along with the description of the dish had me sold the first time I purchased it. The dish turned out delicious, so I have found tonight’s Dinner!

 

To prepare it you either bake it or microwave it, as most times I’m baking it. To start I preheat the oven to 400°F. Removed the tray from the carton. Placed the tray on a cookie sheet. Cooked with the film on for 50 minutes. Removed it from the oven and removed the film, let it stand for 5 minutes before serving.

 

This is so delicious! The Breaded Chicken is fantastic, the Breading of the Chicken was excellent, the Seasoning is spot on, and Spaghetti came out tender. Put all that together and you have one delicious Chicken Parmigiana! They have 13 different Family Dinners and we’ve tried 3 of them, all delicious!

 

 

 

To go with the Chicken Parmigiana and baked us some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

BUFFALO CARBONARA
This dish can often be overwhelmed with garlic and the fatty smokiness of traditional bacon. I have held a light hand on the garlic and the lean, meaty flavor of the Bison Bacon will compliment this dish instead of overpower. A perfect dish for springtime celebrations or casual dinners! (Serves 4)

Ingredients:

Wild Idea Buffalo 10 oz. Uncured Smoked Buffalo Bacon, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 eggs + 1 yolk, room temperature
½ lemon, juiced & warmed
1½ to 2 cups Parmesan or Pecorino Romano, grated
1 teaspoon black pepper +
1 pound spaghetti, cooked al dente
1 to 2 cups reserved pasta water
*optional: asparagus tips or frozen peas, cooked al dente
salt to taste

Preparation:

1) Prepare pasta al dente, reserving 2 cups pasta liquid. Rinse pasta and allow to drain.
2) In heavy, large sauté pan over medium high heat, heat oil. Add bacon and brown until crispy, tossing occasionally about 5minutes. Add garlic to bacon a couple of minutes before bacon is done.
3) Remove bacon/garlic from pan and set aside.
4) Place the two eggs in their shell in a cup of boiling water that is removed from heat source. Allow eggs to rest in water for one minute. Remove eggs and crack into blender along with other egg yolk. Coddled eggs may be a little cloudy, which is ok. Whip eggs in blender.
5) Add the warmed lemon juice and 1½ cups grated cheese and pepper to blender and pulse. Add more cheese if desired.
6) In sauté pan that bacon was browned in add 1 cup of the reserved pasta water and bring to a boil. Add pasta to the water and cover for 1 minute or until pasta is hot. Check pasta occasionally, adding more water if needed. Toss pasta gently. Remove pan from heat and drain excess water from pan.
7) Drizzle egg & cheese mixture over hot pasta tossing as you drizzle. Add bacon and hot vegetables and toss again.
8) Season to taste and garnish with shaved Parmesan or Pecorino.

One of America’s Favorites – Barbecue Spaghetti

Barbecue Spaghetti

Barbecue Spaghetti

Barbecue spaghetti is a dish from Memphis, Tennessee, that combines spaghetti with a sauce made from shredded smoked pork or pulled pork, vegetables, and barbecue sauce. It is served as a side dish in some Memphis barbecue restaurants. Southern Living called the dish iconic and “perhaps the city’s most unusual creation”. HuffPost called it “a Memphis staple”.

Barbecue spaghetti can be made with pulled pork or shredded smoked pork. The sauce is “half marinara and half barbecue sauce”, sometimes with onions and peppers included, and is simmered before adding the pork; the consistency is close to that of barbecue sauce. The spaghetti is cooked until soft, then tossed in the hot sauce. This dish is served as a side and sometimes as a main course.

The dish was invented by former railroad cook Brady Vincent, who opened a barbecue restaurant called Brady and Lil’s. In 1980 Frank and Hazel Vernon bought the restaurant and renamed it The Bar-B-Q Shop. Vincent also taught the recipe for barbecue spaghetti to Jim Neely, who opened Interstate Bar-B-Q in the late 1970s; Interstate modified the sauce recipe adding the “extra back flap meat” from a rack of ribs and cooking it in a pot with peppers and onions.

State Park restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts, serves a “Memphis BBQ spaghetti” that uses pulled pork in a marinara that uses a barbecue sauce as its base.

According to John Shelton Reed, “Barbecue spaghetti is to spaghetti Bolognese as Cincinnati chili is to the Tex-Mex variety”. Filipino spaghetti is spaghetti sauced with banana ketchup and topped with hot dogs.
