Don't Miss Out!
A few posts ago, I told you about Market on the Move and how I was able to get a ton of squash, as well as other vegetables for $10. In this post, I gave you a recipe for a Carrot/Squash Loaf using the yellow squash I got a ton of. Another type of squash that I was able to get I was less familiar with. It is called Orangetti.
At our house, we have some people who are less keen on beef and would prefer chicken. We have Maddy who is trying to eat a little more vegan. Then, we have my husband and I who just like to eat! In order to accommodate every one, I decided to make a deconstructed Chicken Cacciatore, using the Orangetti as a replacement for the pasta! Madalynn left out the chicken and simply ate the Orangetti with the sauce. Either way, the result was delicious. Here is how I did it:
I placed the halves of the Orangetti on a foil lined pan. I drizzled a little olive oil on it and sprinkled salt and pepper on it. Then, I put it in a 350 degree F. oven and baked it until tender. (About 45 min. I think, just stab it with a fork to test it.) While it was baking, I started my chicken.
Now you are ready to serve! This is a great one dish meal!
To my taste, I think I enjoyed the Orangetti a little more than Spaghetti Squash. It has a sweet mild flavor that blended so well with the sauce. I ate more for lunch the next day. (When I put it away, I went ahead and mixed it all together!)
If you find Orangetti in the grocery store, don't be afraid to give it a try!

Busy moms often have so much going on that there is little time to get dinner on the table. You know it isn't healthy to stick to hot dogs or cereal, but sometimes, you really need something quick! Trying to be frugal is important as well, so buying fast food or going out isn't in everyone's budget, nor is that a healthy way to eat, and it certainly doesn't bring the family around the table at dinnertime for those family times that we all need. That is why I was excited to find this method of pan roasting a chicken in a cast iron skillet in about half an hour on Panna!
This recipe is taught by Chef Kevin Gillespie, the winner of Fan Favorites on Top Chef! He just seems like such a down to earth, kind person and he really knows how to cook! I remember rooting for him on his season.
