Not every meal with noodles is standard Italian.

 

Exactly. I think this is more Italian American, which a lot of Italian immigrants to the US added to (my family included). It’s worth taking a look at the way Italian Americans do their Parmigiana and Lasagna, btw.  

 

https://memoriediangelina.com/ That website has some info on it. Or you could just go to Wiki and look up Italian American cuisine.

@klingklang77 Does your family make meatball soup?

 

 

My mom does not, but my grandma made it a bit. Usually the meatballs were in the Sunday sauce with Bracciole and served with pasta.

I mix smoked paprika, chilli , black pepper, ginger spices. Lightly brush salmon with melted butter, then roll in spices. Place on foil, slices of lemon over salmon. I use salmon fillet pieces or a larger piece. Then I like to sprinkle fresh tarragon over. Make a foil package , seal and cook in medium oven for about 20 minutes. Then open and pop under grill to caramelise the buttery juices! Enjoy!

Easy, fast, and tasty.

 

Salsiccia with fennel sliced into pieces and sauteed in butter with mushrooms. Generous amount of garlic and basil. Add in a little white wine and heavy cream. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve over egg noodles with pecorino romano (or your hard Italian cheese of choice).

I was a bit boring tonight. I didn’t have much time, so I did a quick Hello Fresh meal. They have been offering these extra add-ons and I decided to give it a try. I don’t think it was worth the money, but it did taste nice. 

 

I took some Ciabatta bread and cut that in half horizontally. I mixed up some cheddar cheese, butter, 5 cloves of garlic, spring onions, and Parmesan cheese. I melted it a bit in the microwave to make it easier to spread on the bread. 

 

Put in oven at 200 (convection) and cooked until toasted, melted, and warm. I served it with a sour cream and spring onion dip.

I made veggie fajitas with a peri peri chili sauce topped with a sour cream sauce with lime and coriander. It was a Hello Fresh meal.

Add some veggie stock and cover dish with foil. Cook in moderate oven for about an hour.

Turkey burgers!

Mix a pound/half kilo of ground turkey with one egg, some finely chopped onion and green bell pepper, garlic (oil), salt, pepper, a little soy sauce, two good squirts of Worchester sauce, cumin. Add hot sauce to required heat level.

Mix well without squishing.

Add bread crumbs and gently mix until the meat holds together well. Not drippy or gooey.

Shape flat patties, dust well with flour on both sides (makes a crispy surface and burgers hold together in the pan).

Fry at medium heat in a nonstick pan, flip once.

They turned out juicy and fluffy, probably due to the gentle mixing and handling. :)

Last night I did steak, with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. It was a Hello Fresh meal, but I changed it up. 

 

I quarter my potatoes and put them in a pot of boiling water. I didn’t bother peeling because I use a potato ricer, so the peel doesn’t go through that. Used the ricer and mixed with butter and milk. I usually like to add mayo to my mashed (secret family recipe) and of course added salt and pepper. 

 

I peeled and roasted my carrots in the oven with salt, pepper, and olive oil. 

 

I sautéed some mushrooms and an onion for a few minutes over medium heat. I added a clove of garlic for the last minute. Took them out and put that to the side. 

 

Got my steaks (Rump) ready with salt and pepper and they were room temperature, so that’s perfect for cooking. Seared them with butter at medium high in the same pan to make them medium rare. Took them out to let them rest. 

 

Added mushroom mix back to pan and deglazed with a cup of beef broth. Added some mustard. Let that cook up and thicken. Then I added some mustard (1 Tbsp?) and let it cook up a bit. While that was cooking, I sliced up my rested beef and left that to the side. 

 

I got the mushroom mix boiling to thicken more and added some milk, butter, and parsley. When it was thickened, I added the meat slices for a minute to absorb the flavor. I didn’t want the meat to get past medium. YMMV, and you may like it a bit more cooked. 

 

Served with sides and all was good! 

 

It’s a Hello Fresh recipe, but I changed it around a bit. They have really good quality meat there. I think the price is reasonable for what you get. But you have to be savvy on what dishes to pick to get the most value. If anyone wants a box, I have a few boxes in my account to send as a gift. PM me. I’m not sure how that works exactly.

May I ask where you get your ground turkey? I rarely see it in the supermarket, and I sold my Fleischwolf because I never used it. Do you think this would work with ground pork?

That's exactly what I do - I buy turkey thigh meat and grind it myself... when in the US I can simply buy it in the supermarket, of course.

I'm pretty sure the recipe works with pork (basically Bavarian Fleischpflanzerl), I'm just staying away from that for a while. :)

Dunno John, but Kripo Munich has reported disappearing Turks near Metals's little flat.

I bought a chicken on a spit today (but left the supermarket without the spit ). 1 per cent of the chicken...I ate. Fucking 3 dogs and 8 cats ate the rest. Bastards!!!

:D

(saved a bit for a homeless cat, Hühnerkatze, for tomorrow morning...when I walk past the scummy fascist old man who swears at me when I walk past with the dogs on a public pathway ),,,,

*My* ground turkey transformed to burgers, deliciously moved down to our stomachs, and nicely settled down to be digested. A perfect coexistence. ;)
