How to Cook Anything

The How Cook Anything Feature ~ Have you ever opened up your refrigerator or pantry to find them half full of ingredients that you don't know how to tie together for a dish? Or, maybe you need a new recipe idea? I think I can help you out. Check out the new feature I added....located on the right called 'How to Cook Anything'. I love this handy feature! Just enter any ingredients such as broccoli, soy sauce and click 'cook it' and it will take you to a list of ingredients where you will again click on broccoli and soy sauce and anything else you would like to add. Then click 'Find recipes' and up pops up a number of different recipes. It's a fun feature. I'm going to try it out right now. I've entered broccoli, pasta & tomatoes. I was then taken to a list where I checked marked the type of pasta - I chose penne then broccoli & tomatoes. I then clicked 'find recipes' and this is one of the recipes that came up: Penne with Broccoli Rabe, Tomatoes and Parmesan Ingredients 12 ounces penne pasta 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil 4 garlic cloves, chopped 2 bunches broccoli rabe, chopped 8 anchovies, chopped 3/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper 1 pound tomatoes, diced 1 cup chopped fresh basil, divided 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 1/4 cups grated Parmesan cheese Preparation Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite. Drain; return to same pot. Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic; sauté 30 seconds. Add broccoli rabe, anchovies, and crushed pepper; sauté until broccoli rabe is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and 1/4 cup basil. Add vegetable mixture and lemon juice to pasta; toss to coat.Transfer pasta to large bowl. Add remaining 3/4 cup basil and 3/4 cup cheese; toss to blend. Season pasta to taste with salt and pepper. Serve, passing remaining cheese. Cow Fact~ It only takes the cow’s body about two days to process her food into milk Pin It
