Recipe: Sun-Bird Beef and Broccoli

I am not a big vegetable eater so trying a dish with broccoli wasn’t exactly my idea interesting. I think if you are making an attempt to eat more vegetables, this isn’t were to start :) This classic Asian  beef and broccoli is easy to prepare with Sun-Bird Seasoning Mixes. These Seasoning Mixes can be found at your local grocery store in the Asian food section. My closest store is Kroger and they sell them and are really cheap.  If you don’t eat beef or broccoli, substitute chicken and fresh cut green beans for beef and broccoli.

#Recipe: Healthified Mexican Pasta Skillet

This is a nice little way to make an otherwise not so healthy dish a little better for you. I personally left out the Salsa because I don’t like it and it was still fantastic!! I am not normally a Mexican food eater (not that I would really consider this Mexican) but I gave it a try and it was a success. If anything else it can just be a little way to jazz up the plain old pasta on a plate. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Find out your Pasta Personality and how it compares to some of Carrabba’s signature pasta dishes. Are you outgoing and have a spicy personality like a Marinara sauce, or warm and caring like a smooth Alfredo? No matter what your personality, Carrabba’s Italian Grill has a signature pasta dish that’s perfect for you!

I found it quite funny that mine came out to be Spaghetti and Meatballs. While I could eat Meatballs ALL DAY, I am not a big fan of Spaghetti. I am seriously a Fettuccine/Penne’ and Alfredo girl!

Red Gold Tomatoes generously sent me a gift box full of Red Gold goodies. In the box were 4 cans of tomatoes, a large sturdy shopping bag, a key chain, a Red Gold Cookbook, a magnet, Red Gold Ketchup and a brochure full of tomato soup recipes from around the world.

Budget Stretching Recipe: $.74 per serving It’s a fast and easy meal for the times when you’ve had a long day at work and not a lot of time at home. This recipe is used in several school lunch programs because children love it!

1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 (14.5 ounce) can Red Gold® Stewed Tomatoes or 1 (14.5 ounce) can Red Gold® Petite Diced Tomatoes with Onion, Celery & Green Pepper
1 cup elbow macaroni
2 cups shredded pasteurized prepared cheese product


* In a large skillet, brown the ground beef and onion. Drain well. Add RED GOLD® STEWED TOMATOES and 1 cup of water; bring to a boil. Add macaroni and bring back to a boil.
* Reduce the heat to simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until macaroni is done. Sprinkle cheese on top and stir until cheese is melted.

Cook Hint::
Properly wrapped, fresh ground beef can be kept in the freezer at 0° for 3 months. Ground beef wrapped and frozen flat will stack easily and make best use of freezer space. These packages also thaw quicker. Be sure not to stack packages until they are completely frozen.
