This casserole is simple and delicious, and makes a perfect snack during a picnic (bento anyone?)—you should use it as a basic idea for a casserole, since the pasta sauce is the stable and the most important piece of the meal. It's also a very tweak-able recipe! :-)
This is one of my signature dishes—it's delicious, rich and hearty, and goes well with any kind of base: pasta, potatoes, and rice just taste superb together. My secret to the intensive, flavorful sauce is the triple reduction of the ingredients' fluids, due to cooking in batches and mixing in specific order. It takes some time, but the result is so much worth it! :-)
Red peppers are my favorite vegetables—they are crunchy, but also can be cooked soft, and have a sweet aroma that you can twist easily with additional spices. I needed lately some pasta sauce, and decided to experiment with red pepper pesto sauce, it turned out amazing and I think you will like that too! :-)
This one is a real pickle — it's extremely simple, and doesn't look spectacular, but packs a serious punch of flavor and deliciousness. You can easily upgrade or downgrade the recipe based on your liking, use different ingredients, but as long as you make ground meat under a blanket of mashed potatoes, it's gonna be fine ;-)
With all the sugar I'm processing lately, I need to take some precautions to keep my diet balanced. This recipes is the bomb not only for people on the diet, but also for anybody else, who loves the aromatic, juicy aroma of a chicken breast. All of that awesomeness without any extra oil or fat, which makes this recipe gold! :-) ---|
It's also a great cooking technique for almost any meat or vegetable that tastes better when cooked with own juices, keeping the moisture, aroma, and all vitamins inside. It's easy to use, makes great-tasting meal, what's not to love?!
