One I love and it only takes about 10 minutes.

2 packs of Italian Sausage, mild or hot
Onion (diced)
Peppers (red or green, diced)
Can of baby carrots
Can of Peaches and Cream Niblet Corn
Can of french cut yellow beans
Instant rice
BBQ sauce (for topping or dipping)

Sqeeze the meat out of the Sausage casings, fry it with a bit of oil. Add diced onions and diced peppers. Cook completely. Add carrots, niblet corn, and yellow beans. Warm up a bit. Then add 1.5 cups of water, bring to a boil then add 1.5 cups of instant rice. Cover, turn heat off and let sit for 10 minutes. Take the lid off and voila....dinner.

You can top it with Soy Sauce or my fave, BBQ sauce on the side and dip each forkful in.

QUICK, EASY AND HEALTHY???

Look, I'm a great cook and I highly recommend you take this down. Go to ur local 'asian market' and buy oyster sauce or oyster flavoured sauce. It's the key ingredient.

Chop, mince or what ever you want or have on hand of the following.

garlic, onions, brocolli, mushrooms, corn (frozen/canned), bamboo shoots(canned), waterchestnuts (canned), zuccini, beansprouts, carrots, beans, peas, all bell peppers, ginger, cabbage, bok choy, gai lan, tofu, beef, chicken, seafood (prepackaged assorted are cheap and great!), pork.

use pam spray or olive oil, sautee the ingredients to ur liking. add a few table spoons of oyster sauce, pinch of sugar. WHA LA!!

I eat it with a big plate of salad (3 to 5 times a week). But excellent with rice or noodles!!

special notes:

meats-trimmed or lean for less fat
cook meats and onions first
dont cook garlic first, it burns
high heat works best
if its too dry add stock or water
depending on how quick u are, should only take 15 mins

extras:

seseme seeds
celantro/corriander
seseme oil
hotsauce

like it saucy? mix cornstarch with water, add to pan, use stock or water for disired consistancy. cook till thickened.

LOSE WIEGHT AND EAT GREAT!!!

lol. your welcome.

Take some ground beef and make 2 med size patties. Place feta cheese on top of one and them cover and seal with the other pattie. Fry until cooked as desired. Top with chives, chopped tomatos and more feta. Delicious and low fat too!

Honey soy chicken stir fry.... 1 * 440g packet hokkein noodles ... Any variety up to u inside has two packets so you can make two meals .....500g chicken breast fillet, thinly sliced (this 500g is if you using whole 440g packet hokkein) ... 2 cloves garlic (can also just use dry crushed garlic from shop I use garlic steak masterfood seasoning) ... Snow peas any amount recommendabout 150g simply wash cut of any unwanted bits and break in halves... 2 carrots can grate or chop thin... 250ml campbell's real chicken stock... 2 tbsp soy (best to put alittle and taste) ... Honey about quarter cup (again to taste you may prefer more sweet or less) ... Noodles put in bowl of boiled water from kettle and in a few seconds remove and drain... Put oil into pan heat oil before put sliced chicken ... Once chicken cooked add carrots garlic and snow peas mix well add stock, soy sauce and honey .. Taste sauce after mixing and add if needed more leave till slightly boiling about 2 minutes ... Add noodles mix cooking for 2 minutes .... And serve ... Other things you can add if wanted mushrooms ... Maybe cabbage etc etc you could even use beef or lamb instead ... Enjoy :)

anybody have recipes for meals done in one pan that won't take long and are easy?!
Posted: 2/23/2012 11:48:45 PM
one of the first recipes I created as a young homemaker was something I called "Spanish Rice!"

start by browning 1/2 lb. of thick sliced good quality bacon ... when crisp, remove the bacon and keep it for later ... into the bacon fat, add chopped fresh onions, chopped fresh bell peppers and any other veggie you find interesting ... I usually just stick with the onions and peppers ...

as the veggies are browning, add in a cup of instant rice, heating till it's browned as well ... add salt, seasoned pepper and prepared yellow mustard to taste ... a cup of water, stirring to get all the browned bacon bits up from the bottom of the skillet and into the food ...

at this point, you add EITHER a can of tomatoes OR a jar of salsa ... or combinations thereof, using salsa of the heat you prefer! I usually use the medium heat salsa ...

bring to a boil and simmer, stirring occasionally till the water has been absorbed by the rice and it tastes done, usually about 5-10 minutes ...

just before serving, stir the bacon back in ... (if you add it too soon, it gets soggy) ...

this is just the basic recipe ... you can add olives, kernel corn, kidney beans, hamburger meat, chicken, pork chops, whatever you like ... serve with warmed refried beans and restaurant quality corn chips!

This is a great, very tasty and easy to make casserole. Everything is in it which I think is what you are looking for. No need to pour over anything, etc.

1. Brown one lb of ground meat and drain well
2. Grease a casserole dish (about 2 qt dish)
3. Layer the following:

a. Thinly sliced onion
Next
b. Thinly sliced and peeled potatoe
Next
c. 1 can of Niblets corn drained
Next
d. Browned and drained ground meat
Next
e. 1 can of Campbells tomato soup

Cover and bake in 350 degree oven for about an hour

Serve with a salad and bread and you have a one dish meal
