The pasta meal is especially good for feeding families with a large number of children or those who are dieting. Unlike a restaurant style meal, there is no need to adjust your ingredients or cooking methods once you have decided on a recipe. You can easily experiment with varying ingredients, sauces, and temperatures until you find the consistency that is right for your family. This makes it very easy to feed more people with less effort than it would take to cook a meal at a restaurant.
One of the greatest advantages to using these types of recipes is the fact that you do not have to strain or boil dry ingredients prior to using them in one pot. Even flour and other pastas that are not water based can be combined in one pot. Since one pot can contain many different ingredients, it is important to experiment with various combinations before settling on one that is going to work. If you find that only a few ingredients need to be added, then you can get away with using a lower ratio of ingredients. However, many of the recipes will require ingredients to be combined in the same manner each time.
In order to make homemade hamburger helper beef pasta, it is best to use mostly whole wheat flour as well as egg. Whole wheat flour will help the sauce to rise without the mixture being thick. It also ensures that the resulting dish has a texture that is smooth instead of heavy. When using eggs, it is best to use large eggs because the smaller ones can clog the filters of the food processor. There are no negative effects to using larger eggs but they take longer to cook and they do not create the right texture for the sauce.
One of the most popular types of homemade hamburger helper beef pasta meals is the Cheddar cheese mixture. The problem with this recipe is that there is a limited amount of time to prepare it. You can choose to marinate the beef in the Italian dressing while the rest of the mixture is going to sit at room temperature in a saucepan. When ready to serve, just place the cooked meat on top of the marinara and balsamic vinegar.
The Fettuccini Alfredo
Another option for this meal is the Fettuccini Alfredo that utilizes a cooking sauce made from cream and eggs. It is easy to modify this recipe to use anything you like including tomato sauce, broccoli florets or spinach. Just place all of the ingredients into a one-pot meal and continue cooking. When the sauce boils, it will give you a browned on top surface that makes it look like the top layer of a baked hamburger. Add toppings such as tomatoes and garlic for a delicious, authentic taste and enjoy your homemade Fettuccine Alfredo meal.
Making this dish is really easy too since you only need a beef patty, oil, cheese, onion, pepper, salt and pepper. First, you need to get 1 tablespoon of dried Italian bread to help soak up some of the extra liquid and a tablespoon of olive oil. Then you need to grate about 2 tablespoons of onion. Using a food processor, chop up the onion until it is minced. Then, using your hands, mix the beef, olive oil, onion, pepper, salt and any herbs or seasonings together until it forms a paste.
After doing so, you will now add the beef stock and bring it to a boil. Once done, take the cooled pasta and add it to the beef mixture. Stir it up until it cooks thoroughly. You can then add your favorite cheese and pepper and cook for another five minutes while stirring the pasta constantly. The final step would be to remove the lid once the pasta is done and let it sit for five minutes. Unfasten the lid and put it in a sauce pan and bring it to a gentle boil. Add the chopped onions and garlic and turn the burner on medium high. While doing this, add about two cups of water if using a saucepan. Stir and cover the pot tightly to allow the ingredients to boil thoroughly.
