Four Foods on Friday is hosted by Fun, Crafts and Recipes. Here are this week’s four questions. Once again its four questions that all share a theme. The theme this week is “inspiration”.
#1. Name one cookbook, cooking website or food blog that you frequently use.
I must say that often I go to my default dishes in which I don't use a recipe at all... we're in a cooking rut sometimes. But when I do want something different I often go to KraftFoods.com - most of their recipes are pretty simple but they have some more interesting and challenging stuff too. And they have alot of family friendly suggestions.
#2. Do you watch any cooking shows on tv? Which ones?
Not usually... but occasionally I'll watch 30min Meals w/ Rachel Ray. I like her - she's fun! Yum-O!
#3. Are you in a cooking rut? Name a food or dish that you’d like to find a recipe for.
I'm definitely in a cooking rut! We have our family favorites and it seems like thats what we eat, almost all the time. I'd love to try something fun like making Pad Thai from scratch instead of getting the instant kind in a box!
#4. Share a recipe created by somebody else that you haven’t tried but would like to.
This is a recipe my aunt emailed me awhile ago and I just never got around to trying. It sure sounds good though.
Grilled Chicken w/Tortellini
1-2 pkgs Tortellini ( your preference)
1- jar of
1-2 pkgs grilled chicken ( can grill your own)
1/2 pkg of grated Romano cheese ( or cheese of choice)
Drain cooked pasta and save about 1 cup of water it was cooked in. Add pesto sauce with 1/4 cup of water, mix well. Add grilled chicken or serve on side. If needs more moisture add some olive oil and a little more water. Add cheese on top or mix in.
SERVE and ENJOY !
This is also good with pork tender loin.If you do not want tortellini you can use just plain pasta. Penne is great.
