    Default Pasta Recipe & More

    Hello,

    I'm new to Budget 101, so this "hello" goes out to you all.

    COOLCATPANTHER was looking for recipes for pasta, beans, etc... Wanted to change things up a little. That's quite an inventory she has. Anyway here's a recipe I got from a friend with some additions (*) I made. Will also include a couple others.

    From a friend:

    Meat and Pasta Casserole

    1 box ( 1 lb. ) cooked Rotini pasta ( could use other )
    1 lb. ground meat (* chicken, turkey, pork, beef ) - I used grd. turkey/ friend used beef
    1 med. onion, diced
    2 enve. taco seasoning (*reg./mild, your choice - can use spicier ) OR 1/4 c. bulk taco seasoning
    2 cans ( 8 oz. ea.) tomato sauce
    1 can ( 15.25 oz ) black beans, rinsed *
    1 - 2 c. frozen sweet corn * (could use canned/fresh )
    8 oz. shredded cheese * ( i used "mexican blend" - could use other )

    Cook pasta and drain. While pasta is cooking, brown ground meat with diced onion in med.-lg. saucepan. Drain meat juice if using beef or pork. Can use meat juice if using chicken or turkey because it's less fatty. Add taco seasoning and tomato sauce to meat mixture; simmer for 10 mins. Put everything in lg. mixing bowl, reserving enough shredded cheese to sprinkle on top of casserole, and mix well. Put in 9" x 13" baking dish, sprinkle reserved cheese on top and bake, uncoveredin 350* oven for 30 mins. Serves 6

    This one is mine:

    Homemade Cheesy Chicken Pasta Bake

    1 box ( 1 lb.) cooked Rotini pasta ( could use other)
    1 lb. grilled, diced boneless, skinless chicken breast seasoned w/lemon pepper ( about 4 ) - could use ground chicken or turkey, even canned would work
    2 cans (10 3/4 oz. ea.) cheese soup ( have used 1 cheese soup & 1 nacho cheese soup OR 1 cheese soup & 1 creamed soup like celery, broccoli, etc...)
    1 can ( 14 oz. ) chicken broth
    1 med. onion, diced
    2-3 stalks celery, diced/sliced
    2 carrots, sliced OR 1-2 c. frozen mixed vegetables

    Cook pasta and drain. Saute raw vegetables, if using. Put everything in lg. mixing bowl and mix well. Put in 9" x 13" baking dish and bake, uncovered in 350* oven for 30 mins. Serves 6.

    From a friend:

    Chicken Enchilada Dip

    1 lg. bag or box bulk tortilla chips/strips (Sam's/Cosco)

    1 can ( 13 oz.) drained chicken OR 3 grilled shredded (food processor) chicken breasts seasoned w/lemon pepper ( I used grilled)
    1 can ( 10 oz.) green chile enchilada sauce, mild or med.
    1 pk. cream cheese, softened
    1/2 c. mayonnaise
    1/2 c. sour cream
    8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese ( I used "mexican blend" )
    1 can ( 4 oz. ) diced green chili

    Mix everything together and cook uncovered in a 9" x 9" baking dish at 350* for 30 mins. Serve with chips and a salad for a complete meal OR as a appetizer.

    Hope you can use these recipes! Enjoy reading my daily e-mails. Everybody has good ideas. Keep up the good ideas, I'm enjoying them. Nice to meet you all.
