Tay’s TAYsty Pasta

italianbalsamicpasta
AMAZING Dish! With a SECRET Ingredient! Most know of the Italian Salad Recipe. This one has a few things that make it STAND OUT! Plus, Lower in Calories, than most. 

16 oz. Garden Delight Rotini Noodles
1tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4tsp Sea Salt

 SAUCE (Premix):
1 Bottle Regular Italian Salad Dressing (Store Brand: Essential)
1.5T BALSAMIC Vinegar (Use! Don’t skip!)
1.5T Grated Parmesan Cheese (Store shelf kind)
1tsp White Sugar
NICE SIZE 1/2c jarred Roasted SWEET Red & Yellow Peppers in Marinade, chopped

1c Mild Cheddar Cheese Brick, cubed
1c canned Basil Garlic Oregano Tomatoes, drained well
3/4c Cub Foods Signature Honey Ham, minced (*SEE NOTES)
1 pkg. TURKEY Pepperoni Slices
1 can small/pitted Black Olives, drained well
1/2c Red Onions, chopped or minced

PREMIX Sauce Ingredients. Set aside. Cook Noodles in Boiling Water with Salt and Oil (Oil helps noodles from later sticking).  Drain well. Rinse with Cold Water, drain well, again. Be gentle.
Add all to bowl. CAREFULLY MIX all Ingredients. Add to fridge til use.
Please note, the longer it sits, the MORE the noodles will soak up flavor of sauce. Creating a less flavorful dish.

*** NOTES: I was GOING to use Salami instead of Ham (Was even thinking of using BOTH Ham AND Salami!)… Buuut, I forgot Salami. THEN, I was going to use just Ham Steak (Diced) … Buuuut, didn’t cook it… So, I had some FRESH Cut Signature Honey Ham from Cub Foods… Minced it. Was AMAZING. Not looking Back. My laziness paid off!
Salami (Diced) in place of Ham OR, Better Yet BOTH!… Is just fine. MEAT IS YOUR PREFERENCE! We used Turkey Pepperoni to cut Cals. It was AWESOME! Also, for Cheese, you can choose to do: 1/2c Mild Cheddar (Cubed) with 1/2c Other Cheese of Choice (Cubed).

Tay’s Alfredo Beef-sta (Tay’s Alfredo Steak w/ Rice Noodles)

taysalfredosteakricenoodles

Butter Flavor Cooking Spray Pan. Cook Steak with Vegis, Soy Sauce, Worcestershire, and Seasons. Cook down Juices. Then, add in Alfredo Sauce. Simmer a few minutes. Cook Noodles per Instructions (I cooked in part water, part Beef Broth – 6c Water + 2 Beef Broth Cubes, CRUSHED. I also add about 1/2tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil to water to help Noodles w/ sticking). Drain. Serve Noodles and Sauce to consistency desired. Lil Sauce goes long way.

Sprinkle top with Italian 6 Cheese (Optional), then a little Grated Parmesan Cheese. Bake/Broil til cheese is melted! Or, just top each bowl.

Mahalo! Hawaiian Pasta Salad – It’s Grindz!

hawaiianpasta1
A Spin Off from Our Hawaiian Sliders: Recipe Here

2c Uncooked Noodles of choice (I would’ve used Bow Tie, only had Mostaccioli)

1c uncooked Chicken Breasts, cubed largish
1c Ham Steak, diced (Mine was uncooked)
1/2c Lawry’s Hawaiian Marinade
1/2T Coconut Oil

1/2 Red Pepper
1/2 Green Pepper
1/2 Onion

Sauce:
1/2c Mayo
1/2c canned Crushed Pineapple (In juice), slight drain
1/8-1/4tsp Sea Salt
1/4tsp Paprika
1/4tsp Lemon Juice (Fridge Concentrate Kind)

Topping: Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Marinade Chicken and Ham for about 5 hours. Heat skillet with Coconut Oil. Add in marinaded Chicken and Ham. Cook til done. Set aside. Allow to cool.
Mix Sauce ingredients. Set in fridge, til use.
Boil Noodles (Noodle tip: Add in a LIL Oil and a pinch of salt while boiling. Helps noodles sticking.). I drain and rinse in cold water. DRAIN WELL!!!
Chop up Red Pepper, Green Pepper, and Onion.
Combine all together. Serve.
(When premaking for party… Keep in mind, noodles and chicken mix may eat up sauce. So, I always make a lil saucier. Add sauce no longer than 30 minutes prior to serving. Altering sauce amount (Like doubling) is up to your tastes.)

NOTES: I’m sure you can make a “Half the Flavor” pasta with skipping marinade… But, it’s SO TASTY with! And Cheap!
