  • Of Food And Love: Vermicelli with Sausage and Spinach

    I did it again.  Stuck my nose in that magazine and found another great recipe.  Buying that mag wasn’t a waste of money at all.  (feeling better about spending nearly $10 on pretty photos and potential culinary disasters)

    Nothing says yum, more efficiently than sausage and noodles.  Really.

    I used turkey sausage, but please, use what type you prefer.  Looking for healthy alternatives in my cooking is a priority of mine. ( it doesn’t mean my meals are all super healthy, but I do try to find *healthier* options).  If you’re looking for an even better substitute, health wise, throw in some chicken instead of the sausage.

    After sauteing the sausage, garlic and onion in olive oil, pour in 2-cans of low sodium chicken broth and 1/4 cup water (or if you make your own, even better).  Get it boiling and drop in the vermicelli.

    Only 3 minutes of boiling those noodles, leaving them quite al dente.  Lastly, your spinach…and 1/3 cup of whipping cream.

    It should leave your Dutch oven looking like this and your kitchen smelling divine.  A 30 minute meal about to come to rest on your table…

    We dipped in our homemade bread to sop up the broth. *slurp*

    My kids loved it.  Spinach and all.  And the leftovers…well, we polished those off the next day.

    Mmm, you won’t be disappointed, promise! My kids love kelbasa and lapsha. It’s a win win for a Slavik household ;)
