Easy Recipes For The Culinary-challenged-zibba

Do you have a severe lack of skills in the kitchen? Unfortunately, not everyone has the natural ability to throw ingredients together to yield a tasty masterpiece; however, I have a solution for those of us who lack culinary finesse! If you’re tired of stove-top Ramen and Hot Pockets, then get ready to wow your stomach with these simple recipes! Homemade Pizza 1 package pizza dough 1 jar pizza sauce (tomato puree works, too—and it’s cheaper!) grated cheddar cheese toppings of your choice (pineapple, onions, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, etc.) Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste To prepare: If the pizza dough .es in a package, prepare it according to the instructions (usually you just add water, then knead it). If it .es in a tube (like biscuits), then you just have to roll it out. To do this, just sprinkle a bit of flour on the (clean) counter top, roll the dough with a rolling pin. If you don’t have a rolling pin, use a round glass or do as best as you can with your palms. If you prefer a truly deep dish pizza, then leave your dough about half an inch thick. If you like it a little thinner, roll it out until it’s 1/4 inch thick. Transfer the dough to a greased cookie sheet. Preheat the oven according to the temperature on the pizza dough packet. Next is the sauce. Spread the sauce over the dough—as much or as little as you like! Sprinkle salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning on top, then a little of the grated cheese. Throw on your toppings (ground beef and sausage need to be browned in a skillet beforehand), then coat with more cheese. Sprinkle a bit more Italian seasoning, then pop it in the oven. Use the cooking time on the pizza dough as a guide, but keep an eye on it. The pizza will be ready when the crust has turned golden brown and the cheese has melted. Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo 1 package Knorr "Pasta Sides" Alfredo (or you can just buy a cheap jar of Alfredo sauce and a package of noodles) 1 cup broccoli 1 cup grilled chicken breast strips (frozen kind works fine as long as it’s fully cooked) salt and pepper to taste If you opt for the jar sauce and noodles: boil some water in a pot, add the noodles, and cook for about 8 – 10 minutes. Heat the sauce in a saucepan on a medium heat. If you chose the packaged Alfredo, just prepare is per the directions on the package. Fill a small saucepan about half full of water and put on the stove to boil. Chop most of the stems from the broccoli (I like to leave about 1/2 an inch of stem on mine), then chuck in the pan of boiling water. When the noodles are done, strain them. Toss a spoonful of butter into the pot and return the noodles to it (this keeps them from sticking). Check on the sauce—is it piping hot? If so, add it to the noodles and mix it well. The broccoli should be done after about 8 – 10 minutes of boiling. Test a piece to make sure the texture is to your liking, then strain the broccoli and add to the noodles. In a microwaveable bowl, heat the chicken in the microwave until steaming hot, then add to the noodles. Give it all a good mix and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot. Tuna Salad 1 can tuna (drained) 3 cups wide egg noodles 1/2 cup mayonnaise (real mayo, not miracle whip) 1/4 cup ranch dressing 1/2 can corn 4 spoonfuls relish Boil the noodles in a pan of water for about 10 minutes, or until fully cooked. Strain them and rinse with cold water to cool them. Throw the noodles in a large container (preferably one with a lid). Mix in all the ingredients together, stirring well. Cover and refrigerate. (It makes a lot, but this lasts a few days in the fridge, so you can munch on it whenever you’re feeling peckish.) 相关的主题文章:
