Katie's Pizza Pasta Salad

Recipe Provided By Katie Helgeson

Ingredients

  • Zesty Italian Seasoning Packet (Or make your own with Oregano/Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper)
  • ¼ cup vinegar (I use Apple Cider Vinegar, but you could use Balsamic or any type of vinegar you like to spice it up)
  • 3 Tbsp. of Water
  • ½ cup of Olive Oil
  • 1lb. of cooked pasta
  • 1 Bag of Mini Pepperonis
  • 6.5 oz Can of Sliced Olives
  • Small package of cherry tomatoes
  • 8 oz Package of Mozzarella Pearls
  • Parmesan cheese to taste
  •  (Optional Fresh Chopped Basil)

 

**You could also add chopped up peppers or onions if you like those on your pizza!

Directions:

Cook 1 lb. of pasta to use in your dish. I like using rotini, but you could use your favorite kind of pasta. Drain and rinse under cool water. Then set aside.

Prepare the dressing per the directions on your Italian Seasoning packet. Combine the vinegar, water, olive oil and spices in a container. You could also use your favorite Italian dressing!

* The longer you let the dressing sit, the more flavorful it will be.

Combine the pasta with the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Add or subtract anything you/ your family likes with their pizza!

Mix together the ingredients with most of your dressing. I recommend letting it sit for at least an hour before you eat to let the flavors soak into the pasta. I then add the last ¼ of the dressing right before serving.

Top with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil and enjoy!

Nate's Peep-Mobiles

Recipe Provided By Nate Ford

  

 

Ingredients:

1 Marshmallow Peep

2 Mini Oreos

1 Chocolate Covered Pretzel (we used Birthday Cake Flipz)

1 Twinkie

Icing

 

  • Take a Twinkie and cut a small section from the top to give the Peep a place to sit (leave some on the bottom so it is still one piece).
  • Place the Peep in the seat and stick the steering wheel pretzel in front of it.
  • Separate the Oreo sides. Using frosting to attach them, stick them on the sides of the Twinkie like wheels.
  • Serve immediately or in fifty years because Twinkies never go bad. Enjoy your festive treat!

Corned Beef & Cabbage

Recipe Provided By Rose Marie Mack

Corned beef brisket with spices (flats have less fat, tips are less expensive)

Cabbage – cut in wedges through the core

Carrots – cleaned, whole or cut in large chunks

Potatoes - peeled

 

Amounts depend on the number of people you are feeding and how much leftovers you want. Our family likes leftover corned beef, but the veggies are around forever.  We often cook three briskets and one head of cabbage. We add 1-2 carrots and 1 small potato per person. Here’s how we cook it:

 

The day before, in a slow cooker, cover the briskets with hot water, add the spice packet if you want it, and cook on high for at least 4-6 hours. The longer you cook, the more tender the meat. If you use cold water, add some time to get it hot and cooking. Remove the meat. Refrigerate liquid and meat separately until the fat congeals or overnight.

Remove most of the fat, but leave a few tablespoons to add flavor to the vegetables. Place the potatoes, carrots and liquid in a very large pot. Add enough water so the vegetables are covered. Boil until potatoes and carrots can be poked with a fork, about half an hour. Meanwhile, wash and wedge the cabbage and slice the meat. Leave in the cabbage’s core to help hold the wedges together. When the potatoes and carrots are cooked through, remove them to a bowl and cover. Place the cabbage in the water and boil slowly until tender, about 10-15 minutes. Slice the meat while it is cold (it will hold together better) and add it to the hot water for a few minutes, until hot. A steamer basket or colander helps keep the meat from breaking apart so much.  

 

You can, of course, cook the meat and vegetables all on the same day. Remove the meat, then cook the vegetables on the stove in a stove-safe pot. Using the meat liquid is what gives the vegetables the best flavor.  

Sweet Hearts

Recipe Provided By Katie Helgeson

 

Gather your favorite pretzel snacks. The large pretzel rods and twists work well for this sweet project but you can definitely dip the small sticks and twists too for a mini treat.

 

Candy melts are a great product for a non-chocolate flavor and come ready in fun holiday colors like red, white and pink. Use a microwave-safe bowl and add 2 tablespoons of vegetable shortening to about a cup of candy melts. Microwave the melts in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until the melts are completely melted.

 

Place a large sheet of wax paper over a hard surface. Dip and cover each pretzel covering about a third of the surface. Tap the pretzel on the side of the bowl to remove excess candy. 

 

Place the dipped pretzels on a sheet of wax paper and decorate with your favorite candy sprinkles.

Let the dipped pretzels harden for about an hour. You can also place them in the fridge for a quick chill.
