As I was backing out of my driveway, a FedEx truck came by and delivered this package.
Me? A package?
I was excited!
I saw this sticker and figured, I better hurry and put it in the fridge...
I wonder what it is!
I opened the box and found this lovely note from Foodbuzz. As a publisher for Foodbuzz, I am able to participate in sampling some of the products that come their way...
This is my first one!
I quickly took out the brown wrapping...
discovered several blocks of ice...
and Bouitoni's new line of fresh pasta!
I love pasta. Especially fresh pasta.
I couldn't wait to try it.
I took a closer look at it.
It was Wild Mushroom Agnolotti pasta filled with Grana Padano and Parmesan cheeses...
Hmmmm....I'm not a fan of mushrooms....
But I'll give 'em a try!
I thought I would use whatever ingredients I had on hand.
I took 1 pound of London Broil and sliced it thinly across the grain.
It is easier to slice it thinly if it is partially frozen.
I put it in a pan with 2 T. of margarine.
I let it cook part way through...I wanted to get the pasta ready.
Meanwhile, I found some sour cream.
Used one cup.
and put 2 T. of all purpose flour into the sour cream for a thickening.
I added 1/2 c. of water to the sour cream mix...
and cut up 1/4 of a bouillon cube. Next time, I'm going to try instant....
then ground in about 1/4 t. of black pepper.
I got a pot of water ready.
This will only take 4-6 minutes to cook...
I like that!
The pasta sunk to the bottom and then slowly rose to the top. At four minutes, they were all surfacing.
You have to take them out before they fall apart...
I put the sour cream mix...
and stirred it all up.
Now, you can use this as a stroganoff and serve this over noodles or rice.
I know, I know...stroganoff is Russian, not Italian.
But hey, it's worth a try...
Looks good....let's see how it tastes.
Lots mushrooms and cheese.
My sixteen year old tried a bite. He discovered he only likes mushrooms on disguised on a pizza.
My husband LOVES mushrooms...and LOVED this pasta. He would definitely try it again.
Me? Well....just looking at the chunks of mushrooms...let's just say it looked good! Sorry. I'm just not a mushroom lover!
If you are, definitely give this a try!
