This is my original pasta sauce. It's different than those that are simmered all day, but it's better than jarred sauce, and it's quick. You can also play around with the seasonings to suit your own taste. DO NOT - please - cut the amount of olive oil. Trust me on this. It sounds like a lot, but it's not, really, when you add all the pasta.
Perfection simplified. A rich tasting soup that everyone will think you slaved over. Better than that you get at the fanciest place! The house will smell great too! Slightly freeze the onions for ease in slicing and less tears.
I got this recipe from a Simply Delicious cook book by Ron Kalenuik. This soup doesn't sound special...but I made it for a group of women (my rubber stamping club)and everyone raved about it!! I take a pkg of corn tortillas, make strips and deep fry them for one of the garnishes. Everyone who eats it...takes home the recipe!
A wonderful marinade for chicken. If you don't have Miracle Whip, mayonnaise may be substituted. I usually marinate chicken in the marinade at least 30 minutes before cooking. However, I once took chicken sitting in the marinade to a cook-out, and other people there who had brought their own chicken started dipping their chicken in my left-over marinade to coat, then barbecuing right away without waiting for it to marinate. It was still delicious! I've found I can coat over a dozen chicken pieces with a single recipe of the marinade. These days I make this without the Tbs of salt when making it just for myself, but people's tolerance for low salt varies widely and so I've posted it the way I've found suits most people best. I'd say be guided by your own tastes when it comes to amount of salt used.
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE TITLE! Your kids, hubby, wifey, and everyone will eat it. I have made triple batches and could not keep it in the house. It's very smooth, and easily eaten by anyone with or without teeth. :) Fights have started over the leftovers.
