This beefy noodle bowl is quick to whip up in just a few minutes and tastes like it took a lot longer. If you’re not into canned beef, you could also make it with leftover roast or stew meat. It was deemed yummy by my panel of picky eaters! –Mellyn Continue reading
After tasting a friend’s delicious blackened chicken pasta dish made with fresh ingredients, I had to find a way to make something similar with shelf stable ingredients! This is one of my all-time favorite food-storage recipes and definitely one of our family’s 19. –Mellyn
Yield: 10-12 servings
- 12 ounces pasta (we like bowties)*
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 or 2 13-ounce can(s) chicken
- 4 teaspoons blackening seasoning, divided**
- 1 4-ounce can mushrooms, drained
- 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
- 1 7.6-ounce can table cream
- 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Cook pasta according to package directions.
- Toss chicken with 2 tsp blackening seasoning. Heat oil over high heat in a large skillet. Add chicken and sauté until it starts to brown a bit.
- Add mushrooms and tomatoes to chicken.
- Whisk garlic powder, salt and blackening seasoning into table cream. Add to chicken mixture.
- Heat until warm, but don’t boil or the cream will curdle.
- Drain pasta and add to skillet.
- At this point, you can bake pasta for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees and melt a little cheese over the top or just eat it from the skillet.
