Quick and Easy Recipes

Do you have any?  Those that take hardly any time at all and taste good?
 
I've been keeping cooked pasta in the refrigerator to dress up in different sauces for a quick dinner.

    Mar, my wife does the same when we have the occasion to whip up something quickly. She makes a fine jar of Ragu.

    I have recently started doing the same thing, Mar. Just add marinara, or whip up a quick stroganoff( I cheat-cr. of mushroom soup, sour cream, spices) or just buttered noodles as a side dish!

    I guess everyone is in the kitchen fussing over the stove.

    Well I was tempted to give out my chili cheese dog cassarolle recipe topped with Pillsberry crescent rolls but I was afraid this crowd might be a little high brow.

    I'm so lazy, when I want a couple of my (Thumann's brand) hot dogs, I'll just wrap a few in a paper towel and "nuke" em. Then to add insult to injury, I'll double (and triple) dip them in the mustard jar. 
    Please! Don't mention this to anyone. It's a secret.

    To a canned chicken soup..........noodles....rice, most veggies.......add a tbl of smooth peanut butter or 2.  Gives it a velvet texture and a tase that is delightful but noone can guess what the "secret ingedient" is.
     
    Couple it it a Grilled Cheese on Rye Bread......maybe with a piece or two of bacon or some very thinly sliced and grilled summer sausage (sliced lengthwise). Onion and or Tomato as your tastes prefer.
     
    A side of quickly made coleslaw with some finely chopped apple or some canned crushed pineapple, rounds it off

    Whatever's leftover in the refrigeraor.
    A can of soup and a  sandwich - peanut butter, tomato in season,  can of tuna, whatever cold meat that might be handy.
    But, I guess those are not recipes...
     
    Cheers, John

    While you're thawing frozen cooked cocktail shrimp in cold running water add some horseradish to Heinz or Bennet's Chili Sauce.
     
    Or...
     
    Boil salted water.  Add live lobster.  Microwave some butter while "Larry" cooks.

    chicken soup - add 3-4 cups of chicken broth to a large saucepan, 2-3 TBS. finely, chopped parsley, drained canned  chicken, and bring to a boil.  Add egg noodles and cook until done.
     
    Alfredo sauce for leftover pasta - In a Dutch oven, melt 2-3 TBS butter, add about 1/2 -3/4 cup milk (half-and half or cream obviously better), add grated Parmesan or Romano, cracked black pepper, nutmeg, simmer a few minutes to melt  the cheese and thicken a little, then add pasta and toss to coat.

    Since when did cooking become a chore?  I thought it was a pleasure.  Well, it always was for my great-grandmother, my grandmother, my mother and me.

    My quick, 30 min or less type recipe for short notice has always been a macaroni skillet dinner using a pound of ground turkey, leftover or bottled spaghetti sauce, small shells,and ricotta cheese with half a bag of mozzerella mixed in and the rest on top. Variation using bottled salsa and cheddar with crushed fritos on top. If you have the time, place frying pan under the broiler to brown the cheese topping. The recipe is posted somewhere on this board a few years ago.
     
    My other quickie is if I have any leftover spaghetti or fettucine, I freeze it and usually have some on hand. Revive it with a dip in boiling water. With a non-stick frying pan, add a few tbsp of the low grade, pomace olive oil and heat it, add a tsp of the pre-minced garlic that you buy in jars and a shake of some red pepper flakes. Quickly before the garlic browns, add the pasta and toss to coat it a few times. Super fast and simple, but has a wonderful taste on very short notice. Serve with a good quality, deli grade pre-grated romano.
