Recipe: Chicken Pappardelle

Pappardelle with Chicken Recipe


Pappardelle In My Belly!

Not too long after posting about my Roasted Tomato and Garlic Pesto Pasta recipe, I fell in love with this dish. It seems I like pasta as much as the blue Texas sky.

Pappardelle? It’s a wonderfully wide noodle that hails from Tuscany. It was during a trip to Italy when I first discovered a delightful dish of pappardelle resting underneath cinghiale (wild boar) paired with a nice glass of red. Despite the fact that Italy is half the size of Texas, its 20 regions are wildly diverse in geography, dialect, and food. Pappardelle is authentic to the hills of Tuscany.

Try this dish and I’ll hope you enjoy it!

Italy vs Italy Size

Foodie Tips:

❤  You can find pappardelle pasta at Central Market and HEB.

Pappardelle costs about $5 and it’s worth its weight in gold!

If you’re adventurous you can also make pappardelle by hand – here’s a fun video that shows you the magic:

❤  Many foodies prefer to cook pasta 1 minute less than the package directions indicate for al dente perfection! What does “al dente” mean? In Italian… “to the tooth,” which implies the pasta is tender, but not mushy.

❤  I once had an Italian finger shaken at me for using red sauce from a jar. “Why would you use jarred sauce?” If you’re not in a hurry, try my homemade red sauce recipe.

Ingredients:

3 Tablespoons  |  Olive Oil
1 ½ Pounds  |  Chicken Breast or Boneless Thighs, Chopped Into Chunks
To Taste  |  Salt and Pepper
1  |  Yellow Onion, Diced
2 Stalks   Celery, Diced
1  |  Red Pepper, Diced
1 ½ Teaspoons  |  Fresh Rosemary, Chopped
½ Teaspoon  |  Red Pepper Flakes
2 Cups  |  Bertolli Organic Pasta Sauce (Olive Oil, Garlic & Basil)
⅔ Cup  |  Chicken Broth
1 Pound  |  Pappardelle
¼ Cup  |  Italian Flat Leaf Parsley, Chopped
To Love  |  Parmigiano-Reggiano, Shredded

What To Do:

1. Heat the olive oil in a dutch oven or medium-sized pot over medium-high heat.

2. Season the chicken with the salt and pepper and saute it until golden brown (about 5 minutes).

3. Add the onion, celery, and red pepper – cook until the onion is soft and translucent (about 3 minutes).

4. Add the fresh rosemary and red pepper flakes. Cook 1-2 minutes to marry.

5. Add the pasta sauce and broth, stir, and bring to a boil. Shred the chicken with a fork or wooden spoon. Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

6. While the sauce is simmering, prepare the pappardelle and add to the sauce.

7. Transfer your chicken pappardelle to a pasta bowl (or plate). Top with freshly chopped parsley and parmigiano-reggiano. Molto bene!

Spicy Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Spicy Pumpkin and Avocado Soup Recipe

Pumpkin + Sausage + Avocado = Our New Fall Flavorite

The taste of fall. The warmth of Texas.

Thanks to a memorable Texas tasty trio of pumpkin, avocado and smoked sausage, this new fall flavor “flavorite” marries sweet and savory in a most delicious way.

Foodie Tips:

  Use your favorite smoked sausage in this soup – we found the more savory sausage, the merrier. We discovered this pecan smoked pepper jack sausage at HEB and we found it the perfect smokey complement to the bowl of orange.

  If you don’t have an immersion blender, no worries – you can transfer the soup in batches into a blender and purée away. We have a Cuisinart SmartStick Hand Blender that has brought quite a few years of good dishes.

Rosemary Veggie Dog Treats

The Best Dog Treat Recipe

The Best Dog Treat Recipe!


Their 
Favorite Dog Treat Recipe

I used to run an eco friendly pet specialty company, so I’m a big fan when it comes time to care for our furry friends. In fact, some of my very best friends have four legs and I consider myself the lucky one to have known some of these loyal, gentle souls.

To make a tasty dish they’ll really love, we make a batch of these homemade dog treats which were my company’s signature treat – I handmade thousands of them! I hope you enjoy these treats from my pack to yours! I can honestly say that my Labs love these treats as much as I love sharing them. They smell wonderful!

Foodie Tips:

  Have fun creating these crunchy treats with a variety of cookie cutter shapes! Some of our favorites include a mini Texas, heart, stars, cats, a fire hydrant and of course dog bones. You can also buy seasonal shapes which are perfect for gift-giving (shamrocks, pumpkins, candy canes, etc.). Williams-Sonoma has a great cookie cutter line-up.

  You don’t have to slow-cool the cookies overnight if you (or they) are in a hurry … but allow at least a couple of hours for the treats to crisp up.

Ingredients: 

½ Cup  |  Canned Carrots (no salt added)
½ Cup  |  Canned Green Beans (no salt added)
¼ Cup  |  Low Sodium Chicken Broth
¼ Cup  |  Fresh Rosemary, Finely Chopped
1 ½ Cups  |  Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup  |  Rice Flour
½ Cup  |  Wheat Germ
¼ Cup   |  Brewers Yeast
2 Tablespoons  |  Garlic Powder
¼ Cup  |  Olive Oil

Rosemary Veggie Dog Treats

Directions: 

0. Preheat oven to 350°F.

1. Purée the carrots, beans and chicken broth. We used a Cuisinart Smart Stick (an immersion blender).

2. In a large separate bowl, combine the rosemary, the two flours, wheat germ, yeast and garlic powder. Add the puréed veggies and the olive oil. Mix well by hand. This is a dry mix so don’t give up – work out any frustrations on the dough until it comes together well enough to roll (about 4-5 minutes). Take a moment to enjoy the smell along the way – these treats smell wonderful!

3. Lightly dust a cutting board with a bit of the whole wheat flour. Roll the dough to about ¼” thick. Cut out your doggie treats with their favorite cookie cutter shapes and place them on a cookie sheet lightly coated with non-stick cooking spray.

4. Bake for 15 minutes in your preheated oven. Turn off the heat and allow the treats to slow-cool overnight.

Yield: About 9 dozen Doggie treats if using small cookie cutters about 1-2″ in size.

Stores well in an airtight container or bag.

SXSWern Soup Recipe

SXSWern Soup Recipe From Home Style Austin

A Texas Trifecta 

Since Austin is home to one of the largest conferences in the world, we pay tribute to SXSW with our favorite Southwestern-inspired soup.

Great Things Come In 3s

Interactive, Film and Music are to SXSW as food, design and landscape are to Home Style Austin. This recipe? Turkey gets spiced up with its 3 tastiest BFFs: Black beans, corn and roasted red pepper. The end result? It’ll have your tummy doin’ the Texas 2-step, er, 3-step!

Foodie Tips:

  • Roast your red pepper on the grill or gas stove top by placing the pepper directly on grill or stovetop over medium-high heat. As the skin turns black, turn the pepper and continue blackening on all sides until the pepper is done. Place the pepper in a paper bag or Ziploc bag or bowl covered with cling wrap and let it steam for 15 minutes. Peel the skin off and discard, remove the seeds, then dice the pepper.
  • If you want to enjoy this recipe on the SXSWern fast track, you can substitute the fresh corn, roasted pepper and black beans with 1-2 bags of Bird’s Eye frozen Southwest Blend Veggies. I like the roasted fresh track because of the smoky pepper flavor.

Ingredients: 

Dash  |  Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Pound  | Lean Ground Turkey
1  |  Roasted Red Pepper, Diced
1 Cup  | Frozen  Corn
1 Can (15 Ounces)  |  Ranch Style Black Beans
1 Can (15 Ounces)  |  Hunt’s® Tomato Sauce-No Salt Added
2 Cups  |  Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1 Can (10 Ounces)  | Original Flavor RO*TEL Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies (undrained)
½ Teaspoon  |  Taco Seasoning Mix
To Garnish  |  A Squeeze Of Lime
To Garnish  |  Fritos Corn Chips Want In On The Party

Directions: 

1. If you’re preparing this recipe with fresh roasted peppers, prepare the red pepper (directions above). While the roasted pepper is resting…

2. Lightly pour some olive oil into the bottom of a large saucepan and warm the oil.

3. Add the turkey and cook about 5 minutes stirring occasionally until crumbled and no longer pink.

4. Add the roasted diced pepper and corn to the turkey; cook and stir 3-5 minutes until tender.

5. Add the next 5 ingredients and simmer 10 minutes.

Garnish and serve warm. Enjoy!
