Tonight's dinner was brought to us by 'hurry up', 'everyone's starving' & 'no time'. We had a wonderful family photo session with a great friend of mine that I will share at a later date so supper plans got a little fragmented. Hubby had browned the beef before we left and when we returned I played a quick game of "What's in the Cupboards?"
Creamy Tomato Ranch Pasta Dinner (Gluten Free)
5 cups cooked rice pasta
2 cups browned ground beef
1/2 can diced tomatoes (scoop them out so you get the liquid too)
3 tbsp Epicure's Creamy Ranch Dip Mix
Epicure's Chili Garlic Sea Salt to taste
Simply brown the beef, cook the pasta, open the can of tomatoes & add all together ingredients. Stir and serve.
You can probably substitute regular ranch dip or dressing for what I've used (... but I guarantee it won't be as delicious).
* Note about rice pasta: Its imperative that you rinse the cooked pasta in COLD water. If you rinse with warm/hot or if you don't rinse at all the pasta will turn gluey .... and Ain't Nobody Got Time For That.
The Epicure 12-Cup Multipot that I used (first time out of the box.. its almost too pretty to use) has a strainer built into the lid. Yep. No fussing and fishing half of the pasta out of the sink when you flop it out of the cheapo plastic colander. Not that I would feed my family sink pasta... just saying.
Everyone enjoyed this meal. When asked, the Hubby says he'd eat it again. That passes my test.
