Mmm!!!

This is absolutely my favorite recipe. It's not quick, but it's easy, and it tastes DELISH! I need an alternative for wide egg noodles, though.

I made this Food Network magazine recipe yesterday, delicious.
PORK WITH SQUASH AND APPLES
ACTIVE: 25 min I TOTAL: 40 min I SERVES: 4
1   teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
IV2 teaspoons minced garlic (about 2 large cloves)
2   tablespoons chopped fresh sage
2   1-pound pork tenderloins, trimmed Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1   small butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
2   cooking apples, peeled and cut into Vi-inch pieces
1   medium red onion, cut into V^-inch pieces
1   tablespoon honey mustard
1   sprig fresh rosemary
5   tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1.   Preheat the oven to 425°. Mix the nutmeg, 1 teaspoon garlic and the sage in a bowl. Rub over the pork and season with salt and pepper.
2.   Toss the squash, apples, onion, the remaining V2 teaspoon garlic, the honey mustard, and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Spread out on a long sheet of foil. Add the rosemary and 3 tablespoons butter, then bring the ends of the foil together and crimp to seal into a packet. Place the packet on a baking sheet and roast on the upper rack until tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Poke holes in the packet to release steam.
3.   Meanwhile, heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, then brown the pork on all sides, about 8 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons water and scrape up any browned bits from the pan, then transfer the skillet to the lower oven rack and roast until a thermometer registers 150°, about 15 minutes. Transfer the meat to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes.
4.   Return the skillet to medium heat. Add V6 cup water, scrape up any browned bits and simmer about 2 minutes. Slice the pork and drizzle with the pan juices. Serve with the squash and apples.

This is a breakfast dish, but it's absolutely amazing if you love french toast and have a sweet tooth like mine!

French Toast Casserole with Praline

It's even more amazing if you have some left over the next day and heat each slice up by frying it in a pan like you would regular french toast. It gives it that extra crisp... mmm.

Not sure about the wide egg noodle alternative though... :-\\\\

You would most likely use egg tagliatelle. You can find it with the other pastas. :)

I've occasionally found papardelle, which is wider than tagliatelle.

If you simply *must* have wide noodles... if tagliatelle wont do, why not cut your own from fresh lasagne sheets?  Or get a pasta making machine!

I absolutely love this recipe, it's so quick and easy and very tasty! I also substitute chicken breasts for the salmon sometimes, since DH is kind of picky about fish.

We made Beer Butt Chicken last night from the Jamie Oliver "America" cookbook.  It was fab.  We had it with some butternut squash and carrots and some left over Caribbean rice and beans I made the other night.

I've done this before in the US on the grill but never in the oven.

My advice if you want to attempt- use a disposable tin/aluminum baking pan- the cheap £1 type unless you want to scrub forever.  And beware that your kitchen might get a bit smokey... ours did, even with the exhaust hood going.

I couldn't find the exact Jamie recipe online but this is pretty much it.  Take out the curry powder and add one teaspoon of chili powder and one heaped teaspoon of brown sugar.  Serve with whatever you want.  The chicken is soooo moist you don't need gravy. :)

Oh and in the book he uses Budweiser, but since I can't stand it, and I can't stomache the fact of spending almost 5 quid on a 4 pack, we used Carling.  (Any lager will do).


Yum!!! :D
