Pasta Light

What Pasta we like for Dinner List 200:
1.) CHICKEN LASAGNA serves: 4 working time: 40 minutes total time: 1 hour

9 Lasagna noodles (9 ounces)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 Large red onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup dry white wine (not for me)
2 1/2 cups canned crushed tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon salt (only with prue cherry juice)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 3/4 cups low-fat (1%) milke (I like hole milk)
3 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook the noodles until almost tender.
Drain. Transfer to a bowl of cold water to prevent sticking.
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil until hot but not smoking over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, and garlic and cook until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

2. In a food processor, process the chicken until coarsely ground. Add
the chicken to the skillet and stir until lightly colored, about 2 minutes.
Add the wine, increase the heat to high, and cook until the liquid has
been reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, rosemary, salt, 1/4 teaspoon of the black pepper, and the red pepper flakes. Return to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes to blend the flavors.

3. Preheat the oven to 400F. In a medium saucepan, whisk the milk
into the flour and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until
slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.

4. Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Dividing the ingredients evenly, build the lasagna in three layers,
using the following order: noodles, chicken sauce, white sauce,
Parmesan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until bubbling hot. Divide
among 4 plates and serve.
What do you thank?

Re: PASTA LIGHT

i would leave out the black pepper--unless you are from texas. is a staple there-- the chiles are enough. black pepper in the face of crushed chiles yields tex-mex flavor and heartburn. but then i am only an observer-- the rest sounds lovely!!!!

mebbe add some oregano???

Re: PASTA LIGHT

I don't have a food processor, but I'll try this with the chicken chopped up very small. Thanks!

Pasta dishes for offshore passages

The three things I really like about pasta dishes is that they can be one-dish meals (easy to eat when sailing in rough weather offshore), they can be made ahead of time and vac-sealed and frozen for an ocean passage, and they taste great!

Make the sauce (meat or vegetarian) and vac-seal it separately from the pasta. The pasta will get mushy if mixed into the sauce. Cook the pasta al dente, and vac-seal it separately. The secret is to toss it with a little olive oil first, so it won't clump into a sticky ball. Smaller pastas, like ziti or shells, are easier to eat in a bouncy boat than linguini or spaghetti.

Prep is easy--just heat the bags in a pot of water, cut open, and serve right out of the bag. No cooking pans to clean up! To save on fresh water, you can use seawater to heat the bags and then us it to wash any dishes and utensils.

If you do a lasagna like NativeUSAindian's, freeze it before vac-sealing to preserve appearance.

Re: Pasta Light

Thanks for a great recipe. Sounds good but "light" means different things to dieters and diabetics, who must keep in mind that pasta is 42 grams of carbs per two-ounce serving, even before anything else is added.
