One Pot Pasta

I created this dish for dinner last night. It was an easy and tasty meal and quite healthy although it tasted very rich. I tried the yoke less egg noodles for the first time and they are delicious and a healthy pasta alternative. This dish is ready in less than 30 minutes and is probably one of the simplest thing I’ve made to date. Have it for dinner tonight!

Ingredients List:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion sliced
  • 2 cups mushrooms sliced (i used a mixture of white sliced and portobello)
  • 1 lb  extra lean turkey
  • 1 large can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 jalapeño sliced
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 4 cups  chicken broth
  • 1 pkg  broad yokeless egg noodles
  • 1 container of Philadelphia Cooking Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup  loosely chopped fresh basil

In a large pan add your olive oil and cook the onion, jalapeño and mushrooms on medium high heat until softened. Add the turkey and cook until browned and no liquid remains-about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and wine cook for about 5 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Add the Pasta to the pot and cook (stirring occasionally) until pasta is al dente about 8 minutes. Add cream cheese,parm cheese and basil and stir into the mixture. Serve immediately.

Happy Friday!

I dream of Mexico…

I recently booked a trip to Mexico City to spend a week with one of my oldest gal pals. I leave the first week of Feb and it won’t come soon enough. It is -15 degress in Toronto right now! (YUCK!) I realize that I am Canadian (and a Canadian from Northern Ontario nonetheless) but I cannot get used to this brutal weather!!!! Anyway, my friend Jen is coming over this evening for dinner and a catch up and so feeling inspired by my trip I decided to make something a little Mexican (Mexican Lasagna with Guacamole Rice) and a little Naughty. Perfect for girls night. Bring on the Tequila!

Ingredients List:

  • 1 package lean ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup of lime juice
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • handful of cilantro chopped
  • 1 small sweet onion chopped
  • 1 cup of corn
  • 1 cup of black beans
  • half a red pepper chopped
  • half a jalapeno pepper chopped
  • half a tomato chopped
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese (i used the taco/nacho shredded cheese mix)
  • 4 tbsp of salsa ( this is just a guideline)
  • 3 corn tortillas
  • handful of tortilla chips
  • 1 1-/2 cups cooked rice
  • 1 1-/2 ripe avacado’s
  • 1 cup packed fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • 6 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Gloves of Garlic
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 Tbsp of butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

Serves 4

The rice is intense and the sour cream adds the perfect flavour and creaminess to cut that intensity. Everything works really well with the Mexican Lasagna and it is a fun and very tasty dish!

I’d love to hear from you and know if you have tried to make anything at home. Thanks for reading. Stay Warm!
