I don’t know about you, but I feel like I have cooked four hundred meals in the last four weeks. We’ve only ordered take out a couple of times, and with a twenty-two year old son still living at home (who is lucky enough to be still working at his construction job), I can’t get lazy and open a can of soup for dinner. In order to keep boredom from setting in, I’ve started experimenting with new recipes, which is why I thought this week’s topic on the Romance Writers Weekly Blog Hop might be fun for us all.
It’s recipe Swap time! Share your favourite dinner recipe. Can be as easy or complicated as you like.
I am sharing one of my favourite one-pot meals. I cobbled it together from two recipes in the Company’s Coming Pasta Cookbook.
1 lb. ground beef
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup green pepper, chopped
Butter, margarine or oil
14 oz. can brown beans
28 oz. can canned diced tomatoes
Generous squirt of ketchup
½ tsp. basil
½ tsp. oregano
½ tsp. salt
1.5 cup water
2 cups macaroni (or other small pasta)
1 cup (or more) shredded Cheddar cheese
There are two ways to make this recipe.
In a large, deep skillet, saute onion and green pepper until soft.
Add next six ingredients. Stir until well mixed.
Add macaroni and water (and ground beef if pre-cooked). Stir well. Cover and cook until macaroni is just tender.
Add cheese and stir until melted. Enjoy!
Now, hop over to Leslie Hachtel for another new-to-you recipe!
