Re: FEBRUARY RECIPE EXCHANGE GAME

Pardon the interruption....

 

@rrpell

 

I just had to tell you how much we enjoyed your recipe for

 

Basmati Pilaf with Dried Fruits and Almonds

 

posted earlier.  The flavors were fantastic.

 

I made it as a side to @mtc  Hawaiian Sloppy Joes (AKA Hula Joe's)

 

I will be making this again and again.  I used dried cheeries since I had some to use up.

 

Thanks!

 

 

NEXT INGREDIENT:  TOMATO SAUCE

Thanks @rrpell  !!

 

 

Cheesy chicken, rice, corn, black bean and rice casserole.

<

  • 2 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 4 cups Cooked Rice  (any kind, but I use white)
  • ¾ cups Frozen Corn
  • 15 ounces, fluid Can Black Beans, Drained And Rinsed
  • 1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt (or Sour Cream)
  • 4 ounces, fluid Can Green Chilis
  • ½ cups Salsa
  • 1 cup Low-fat Cheddar Cheese, Plus More For Topping
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro For Garnish


Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for cilantro and mix thoroughly to combine. Make sure the yogurt and cheese are stirred in throughout the entire bowl. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Transfer to an oven-safe dish and top with extra cheese if you would like. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until heated through. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

To make this process easier, I always have cooked chicken on hand, and use Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice. If you have those two things, this can be thrown together in a matter of minutes! It can also easily be made ahead of time and reheated.

Re: FEBRUARY RECIPE EXCHANGE GAME


Spaghetti Squash with Garlic and Parmesan

Prep time
10 mins
Cook time
1 hour 15 mins
Total time
1 hour 25 mins

Author: Justin McChesney-Wachs | Salt Pepper Skillet


Serves: 4
Ingredients


1 spaghetti squash (3-4 pounds)
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced or garlic powder
1 shallot, chopped
¼ cup finely minced parsley
¼ cup parmesan cheese, shredded (plus extra for serving)
salt + freshly ground pepper to taste
Instructions


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.


Carefully cut squash in half lengthwise, then scoop out and discard the seeds.
Place squash cut side up on a parchment paper lined sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt + pepper.


Bake for about 60 minutes, or until the squash can easily be pierced with a paring knife or a fork. Let the squash cool for 10 minutes.


Meanwhile, sauté the shallots and garlic in a skillet until translucent, but not browned (about 5 minutes). When shallots and garlic are done, add the butter and parsley.
Scoop out the spaghetti strands from the squash with a fork (trying to maintain the long strands) and add to the skillet.


Cook for a minute or two to combine all ingredients and warm through. Remove from heat and add grated parmesan cheese.


Garnish with more parmesan and parsley.

Sorry about the underlining. I know that looks weird.  I make this every week and the family loves it.  Sometimes I sautée spinach to incorporate for more nutrients.
