Another Week of Comfort Food
Actually, way too much of comfort food and way too much pasta for my liking. No less than 4 dishes were pasta and rest had potatoes! It looks like next week will feature a lot of rice and rice noodle dishes.
When I was assembling this great dish I was thinking how closely related it is to Lasagne. In this version I used veal, ricotta and arugula filling with tomato and Béchamel sauce.
Roasted Chicken Legs with oven baked fries.
Crispy chicken skin, moist meat underneath and crunchy potato fries…what a combo!
Chicken breast stuffed with cheese.
Served with buttered noodles, spicy tomato sauce and arugula.
Chicken thighs, tomatoes and red peppers stew with buttered potatoes.
Penne Rigatoni with beef, mushrooms and tomato sauce.
Kassler with fruit sauce.
Traditionally the Kassler (German smoked pork chops) is cooked with sauerkraut but couple years ago I have tried it with pineapple and it tasted great. Since I didn’t have pineapple I tried a can of mandarin and pear compote. Great stuff! I’ll post full recipe later.
Veal and mushrooms ragout with buttered wide noodles.
