RE: [EpicureRecipes] Kraft pasta salad?
- I've attached my cut and paste from various pasta sauces that could be used
in a Kraft type pasta salad.
Basic white sauce
adding any of the Italian Sauce Mixes; Margherita or Marinara would be my
picks because they are bursting with flavor yet won't overpower the light
sauce. ["Pasta" seasoning itself would also be a good choice, even Fines
Herbes or Herbes Provencales for a light "French" inspired sauce...or even
Greek seasoning!] You could add some grated mild cheese as well or instead
[Cheese Potato Topper IN the sauce?? something I will have to try!]
Possibilities with VE are almost endless.
alfredo sauce then-
cream, butter, VE Minced Garlic, parmesan cheese, mushrooms, VE Pesto (Herb
or Artichoke Dip), salt & Pepper
Saute minced garlic and mushrooms in butter.
Add cream, parmesan & seasonings.
Simmer until thickened
A very delicious non-red sauce that I have been making lately is tossing
pasta with light cream (5% fat or less), the cheese and/or bacon potatoe
topper and some parmesan cheese. It is fabulous, creamy yet very light. Kids
love it. It's like those packaged "sidekicks" without all the additives, fat
Another great one is olive oil, feta or parm cheese and Sundried tomatoe dip
mix. The opportunities are endless when using olive oil and any of our dip
mixes, pasta seasoning etc.
One other one I did recently was melted down some light cream cheese in a
pan, tossing in some pasta, veggies, and any of your fav. spices, dip mixes.
I used the garlic potatoe topper, it was fantastic. It was a very light
cream sauce. You could also add a little milk as well to thin it out a bit.
use the light soft philly cream cheese.......warm it until it is softened in
the microwave and then add one of the Epicure Spice Blends (depending on my
mood) to flavour it. The Herb and Garlic and the Pesto Herb are really nice.
I mix the spice into the softened cream cheese and then warm it a bit more
for the spices to infuse with the cream cheese and then toss it with
pasta...pasta and chicken...or pasta and shrimp. I then spinkle Epicure
Chives and some fresh diced tomatoes on top. My family loves this
hi! 1 tbsp of the curry dip mix in some plain yogrt or a cream base is good
the pesto maybe an idea for her as well
I have a huge hit at parties(especailly xmas time cause it's pretty)
you could easily mix this altogether to create a pasta sauce.......
1 Tbsp of VE sundried tomato
1 Tbsp of VE Pesto
1 Tbsp of Olive oil
( I also add a bit of the dried VE red bell peppers, it adds to the color)
*I personaly like to let it sit overnight
serve on a plate and serve cream cheese on the side with crackers.....
all the colors blend well
you can adjust this to your desire just make sure you have equal parts
