Cooking Class #1

Here is the recipe for the wonderful meal that we made last week during our cooking night! It was absolutely delicious and very filling. We made bread crisps and dip, jumbo stuffed pasta shells with marinara, and a spinach leaf salad.

Dip
3-4 slices of bacon
2T brown sugar
chipotle peppers
2T cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
salt & pepper

Mix the brown sugar with the chipotle pepper sauce (about 1 tablespoon). Rub the sauce on the bacon and cook @ 400 degrees for about 15 mins, or until it's crispy. Then, chop up the bacon and mix it in with the remaining ingredients.

For the bread, we cut up pieces of the garlic bread loaves you buy at the store and we soaked it in olive oil and butter and then cooked it so that it was very crispy. Spread the dip on the top of the bread crisps and enjoy!

Marinara Sauce
1/2 red onion
1-2 garlic cloves
2-3T olive oil
red pepper flakes
canned tomatoes
2 tablespoons sugar or brown sugar (we used brown sugar)
assorted herbs (we used rosemary, oregano, and basil)
salt & pepper

Mix all together and spread over the top of the pasta shells.

Pasta Shells and Stuffing
1. Boil Shells
2. Cook chicken breasts @ 350 degrees w/ olive oil and salt & pepper, for about 20 mins
3. Mix 1 egg, 1 cup ricotta cheese, 3/4 cup shredded italian cheese, chopped up chicken, salt & pepper, and herbs (this will be the stuffing inside the shells)

Stuff shells, smother the shells in marinara and sprinkle with cheese, cook for about 20-30 mins.

I forgot to bring my camera and take pictures of what the meal looked like, but I will make sure and do that tonight when we cook.
