This day is dedicated to pasta recipes that don't involve marinara sauce. When I was in college, I practically lived off of those little powder packets you get at the grocery store. They cost 97 cents and all I had to do was add milk or oil, chicken, and pasta. Super easy!
When I want something a little fancier, I often make stroganoff or a delicious Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper Cayenne Sauce pasta. There are about as many ways to make stroganoff as there are to skin a cat, but here's how I like to do it:
1 lb beef roast
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
¼ cup butter
2 TB flour
½ cup beef broth
½ tsp mustard
2/3 cup mushrooms
1/3 cup sour cream
3 oz cream cheese
- In large skillet, melt butter and cook the beef and onion.
- Stir in the flour, add broth.
- Bring to boil
- Lower heat, stir in mustard, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Stir in mushrooms, sour cream, cream cheese, and salt and pepper as needed.
