If you found yourself with leftover squash from last night's sumptuous meal, put it to good use in an easy weeknight pasta. Take a nod from a seasonal favorite — butternut squash ravioli — and serve up the same earthy flavors of sage, nuts, and browned butter with fresh store-bought or homemade pappardelle pasta. In contrast to its dried counterpart, it cooks up in only a couple of minutes. Want the recipe? Then keep reading.
Now that I know where to find humanely-raised veal, I'm going to start experimenting with this meat more in the kitchen. Tonight, I'm whipping up an Italian classic, veal piccata.
It starts with flattened meat that's flashed in the pan, then served with a sauce made from butter, capers, lemon, and pan drippings. If you're not a fan of veal, you can substitute another type of protein, such as turkey paillards or thinly pounded pork tenderloin.
Serve the piccata over a bed of steamed egg noodles, and a crisp white wine on the side. For a gourmet Italian dinner in minutes, read on.
Earlier this month, Party and I were enticed by one reader's rendition of beef stroganoff. If you, too, found yourself salivating over her creation, here's another dish that you need to bookmark! Unlike the classic course, which has sour cream and mushrooms, the ground beef in this recipe becomes a stew with the help of a roux, beef broth, and Worcestershire. Pile it on top of herbed egg noodles, serve with a salad, and you've got a speedy (and guest-worthy!) dinner. Curious? Then read more.
Do you cook wonderfully delicious dishes and then take photographs of them to show your friends and family? Well, why not go one step further and share them with us in the YumSugar Community? That's what reader MénagèreModerne recently did with this scrumptious sounding stroganoff recipe. Classic stroganoff is made with ground beef, but Ménagère used ground pork because that's what she had on hand and she wanted to "cut down on the salt a bit." The final dish, that combines the meat with sour cream, sherry, and mushrooms, is economical and surprisingly fast.
