Old-Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings

Old-Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings

Ingredients:

2.5 – 3lbs of chicken
2 celery stalks
2 medium carrots
8 cups water
2.5 tsp salt
.5 tsp black pepper
2 cups flour
.5 tsp baking soda
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
3/4 cup buttermilk

Directions:

  1. Place chicken, celery, and carrots in a Dutch oven; add water and 2 teaspoons of the salt.  Bring to boil over high; cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until tender, about 1 hour.  Remove chicken from broth, and let stand until cool enough to handle, about 15 minutes.  Remove and discard skin and bone from chicken, and cut meat into bite-size pieces.  Bring broth to boil over high; stir in pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, combine flour, baking soda, and remaining .5 tsp of salt in a large bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender (or use your fingers) until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Add buttermilk, stirring with fork until dry ingredients are moistened.  Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface, and knead lightly 4-5 times.
  3. Pat dough to .5″ thickness.  Pinch off dough in 1.5″ pieces, and drop into boiling broth. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until desired consistency is reached, about 8-10 minutes.  Stir in chicken.  Garnish servings with green onions.

Beef and Cheese Manicotti

Beef and Cheese Manicotti

 

Sauce: Ingredients

  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes (in juice)
  • 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 medium cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil

Sauce: Directions

Heat oil, garlic, and pepper flakes (if using) in large saucepan over medium heat until fragrant but not brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, basil and 1/2 teaspoon salt and simmer until thickened slightly, about 15 minutes.

 

Manicotti Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 14 – 16: 8-ounce package manicotti
  • 1 (15ounce) container whole-milk ricotta
  • 3 Cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1 Cups graded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tables spoons chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 table spoons butter, cut into pieces
  • Sauce (Above)

Manicotti: Directions

Heat a heavy medium skillet over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of the olive oil, onion and ground beef. Season with salt and pepper. Saute until the meat browns and the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, and cool.

Brush 1 teaspoon of oil over a large baking sheet. Cook the manicotti in a large pot of boiling salted water until slightly softened, but still very firm to the bite, about 4 to 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the manicotti from the pot to the oiled baking sheet and cool.

Meanwhile, combine the ricotta, 1 1/2 to 2 cups mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan, and parsley. Add the garlic, salt, and pepper to taste, and mix. Stir the cooled meat mixture into the cheese mixture. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Brush the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil over a 13 by 9 by 2-inch glass baking dish. Spoon 1 1/2 cups of the sauce over the bottom of the prepared dish. Fill the manicotti with the cheese-meat mixture. Arrange the stuffed pasta in a single layer in the prepared dish and spoon the remaining sauce over.

Sprinkle the remaining 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella cheese, then the remaining 1/2 cup of Parmesan over the stuffed pasta. Dot entire dish with the butter pieces. Bake the manicotti uncovered until heated through and the sauce bubbles on the sides of the dish, about 30 to 35 minutes. Let the manicotti stand 5 minutes and serve
