Rachael Ray makes five 30 minute make-ahead meals, including Beef Goulash With Blue Cheese, Toasted Spaghetti Minestra With Tuscan Kale, Sweet Sausage and Eggplant Penne, Boneless Chicken Chasseur, and Tomato Soup and Pumpernickel Grilled Cheese. That's five make-ahead meals, up to a week's worth of food, done ... in just one day!
Join Rachael Ray as she makes five make-ahead meals in one day — and the best part is that they each cook up in 30 minutes or less! First up is a Sausage Ragu With Pappardelle, then for dish two, how about a nice bowl of homemade Mushroom Soup With Marsala, served over a round of fried toast and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano? Dish three is Zucchini Potato and Fennel Stew, dish four is Chicken Thighs in Mild Red Curry, and for dish five, it's Turkey and Chorizo Chili, topped with crushed corn chips.
The only thing better than a meal that saves time is a meal that saves money, and Rachael Ray is here to show you a week's worth of meals that do both! It's five budget-friendly dishes that you can make in a single day! Dish one is Parsnip and Potato Soup, dish two is Baked Beans and Knockwurst. For dish three, it's Bean Ragu With Linguini, dish four is a killer Chicken and Green Bean Soup With Tarragon and dish five is Croque Monsieur Pie, a bubbly cheesy casserole you don't want to miss!
Rachael Ray has two versatile mini-recipes that you can roll over into five full-fledged suppers. The first rollover recipe is Buttermilk Ranch Brined Turkey, which Rachael uses in three of the five meals: Dish one is Turkey and Corn Chowder With Bacon and Chipotle, dish two is Pilgrim Casserole layered with Thanksgiving favorites and dish three is Turkey and Poblano Red Eye Stew. The other rollover is a Beef and Tomato Base, which is the foundation for dish four, Beef Picadillo, and dish five, a Beef, Bacon and Onion Sauce With Bucatini.
Buying food — especially meats — in bulk can be a great deal. But once you buy it, you gotta use it — so Rachael Ray is getting two completely different but equally delicious meals out of pork shoulder, and two more out of chicken thighs, plus a tasty meat-free menu to lighten things up midweek. Recipes include Hungarian Pork One Pot, Pork and Cider Stew, Broken Spaghetti Soup With Escarole, Green Harissa Chicken Thigh and Chicken With Porcini Gravy and Polenta.
