I’m Spicing Things Up: Week 5

Last night I made Chicken Spaghetti, from the Pioneer Woman’s collection of wonderful casseroles. People, try this. It was so good, and rich, and fattening, and delicious. Just what a casserole should be. And the best part was that Brett and Ethan loved it. Ethan ate so much I thought he would burst. I was glad he liked it because it’s got some onion and bell pepper hidden in there and he didn’t even know he was eating it. He’s only 1 and I’m already sneaking food in.

I’ve made casseroles before but I wanted to make this one because I had to do a couple of new things. Here goes…

I boiled a chicken with the bones and skin on it. (I usually only cook boneless, skinless chicken breasts)

I used pimentos for the first time and had to find them in the grocery store. Well I had to ask for help. I was totally off.

I’ve never cooked pasta noodles in chicken broth after the real pieces of chicken had been in it. Kinda creeped me out for a minute. I’m getting better.


I’ve never used Cayenne Pepper in anything.

So I tried a few new things and was really pleased with the outcome.


Everything mixed together. Look at all the pretty colors. Kinda reminds me of Christmas.

Really go out and buy the stuff now to make it asap. It was a hit with us!
