Turkey in the Straw

"This is so easy, and quite tasty. Mom and I just threw it together one evening for dinner. We happened to have Rigatoni on hand, but any of your favorite pasta would work just as well."

<p>I live in Hudson, FL - fondly known as heaven's waiting room for the newly wed or nearly dead - NO - I'm not either :) <br />I have two 4 legged feline daughters named Hannah, and Lucy. <br />I enjoy cooking, cross stitching, and LOVE NFL Football - GO BUCS - GO PATS! <br /><br />UPDATE: 2/8/2008 <br />My friend Bruce introduced me to Recipezaar. <br />We used to play a game called Randomization where he would hit the randon recipe button, and whatever came up - I would have to make. For some of you who have read my reviews, this may make more sense to you now. Bruce refused to let me use his name - he preferred to remain anonymous so I used the name Herkimer for him instead, much to his chagrin. <br /><br />Shockingly, Bruce died Aug 28, 2007. He was the light of my life. I haven't cooked in a while - certainly nothing like I did when we would play. I can't believe he's gone - I miss him so much. Things just really aren't the same. <br /><br />The last randomization recipe that I completed was Oranges in Caramel Syrup <br />Recipe #175594 - I delivered them to him on the Friday morning before he died on Tuesday night. Saturday mornings we would play the game, if I had completed the recipe from the previous randomization. The last Saturday we played I received Chick Pea and Tomato Curry <br />Recipe #274313. I never made it. He knew I was sick of the idea of having to eat Chick Peas because I don't like them. He was so pleased with himself - his mantra for the game was He couldn't be happy until I was unhappy because he knew I was such a picky eater - anything Green or a Vegetable was a challenge. Let me assure you that after all the moaning and groaning I did over that recipe - he must have died a very happy man. I told him at the funeral home, some people will do anything to get out of eating Chick peas.</p>
