Now I love pasta. I adore it, but sometimes the carbs don't love me so much. When that happens I go and get a box of Dreamfields (WHY DON'T YOU MAKE ANGEL HAIR OR SMALLER SPAGHETTI?!)
...ahem anyway. It tastes like pasta because it is pasta, but they've done something special to the carbs to block them from being absorbed. Apparently this doesn't hold true upon vigorous reheating or possibly cooking in tomato sauce (but then why the lasagna? I'm going to mark this as a pasturban legend).
So last night I got home quite late and didn't have much time to cook since I had to raid in WoW (my second job, sometimes)
Here's what I did.
- The water I had boiling i set to very low so it was barely simmering.
- I'd cooked a few pieces of bacon and ate them while I put a sliced vidalia onion in their oil, added a little butter and put it on almost-off-low.
- When we wiped on XT hard mode I'd go and check on the onions and eventually added some garlic to them. I also added cayenne, oregano, basil, black peper and thyme
- Back to raiding...
- Smelled the garlic and added sliced crimini mushrooms to the pan
- I let that go till the mushrooms were quite done and just turned the whole thing off.
- When we were done raiding (after 1am, we started at 9pm) I put the water back on high.
- I added sliced chicken breast to the pan and the juice of one lemon
- Cooked it till it was done and ooh.. remember not to overcook the Dreamfields pasta because it turns to mush. The spaghetti takes 9 mins!
I also added ample amounts of parmesan.
Here's the recipe condensed:
1 chicken breast sliced
1 medium vidalia onion sliced thinly into half moons
8-10 crimini mushrooms
8 cloves garlic (I do love this, use it to your taste)
3 slices of bacon
butter, olive oil
spices like oregano, thyme, basil, black pepper and cayenne
a dash of soy sauce
the juice of one lemon
pasta to serve it over
cook bacon in large skillet and reserve (or eat!). Place onions into bacon grease and set the eye to low. Add a pat of butter. Cook until the onions are soft and near caramelized. Add minced garlic and cook until golden. Add mushrooms and spices. Add butter or olive oil if needed.
When the mushrooms are close to done add the chicken, soy and lemon juice. Cook until just done and still tender.
Serve over pasta with ample amounts of Parmesan!
This is what it looked like before I mixed (and devoured):
Best part about the Dreamfields pasta? One serving has 5 "digestable" carbs.
