The Jeanie Jo & Joanna Project Recipe 3 of 312.
This recipe reminds me of Beans and Ham-hocks except these were not tasteless, this was surprisingly delicious and a perfect pairing with the cornbread as mentioned in the cookbook.
I will note that I soaked these beans over night and found they did not need the full 3 hours of cooking as stated. I checked them each time I stirred to ensure they would not become too soft.
I recently read about the history of Black Eyed Peas and how it became tradition to eat them on New Years Day for good luck. So I was ecstatic to find a recipe which included these beans to serve on this holiday. This will be a new January 1st tradition in our family.
My husband gave them a four (because of the pork shoulder) 🌻🌻🌻🌻
My daughter not being a big meat eater also gave it a four (because I gave dad most of the pork) 🌻🌻🌻🌻
I give it a five for its simplicity and fond memories of my childhood. 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻
Cooking through Magnolia Table Cookbook Vol 1 & 2, Until next time ….
A few years ago, I had Sausage Wraps on the menu. I loved eating them, yet they took so long to make; boiling, wrapping, stuffing, baking, basting … So, I opted to throw all of the ingredients into the skillet instead. What began as a simpler way to create a more difficult meal has become a family staple (with a few changes). As ground beef prices continue to soar and purchase limits are put in place due to COVID-19, it is time to be a little creative with the meats that we use in our meals. I share with you, Sausage Spaghetti to save the day!
4. Slice 1 Green Pepper or 4-5 Mini Sweet Peppers.
5. Heat skillet on medium heat with 1 Tbsp Olive Oil. 6. Place sliced sausage and pepper in the heated skillet. Stir and flip until browned and peppers are ready to eat. I use my Pampered Chef Tongs (pictured below).
7. Add teaspoon garlic powder, teaspoon onion powder, teaspoon basil, teaspoon Italian seasoning, a pinch of salt & a pinch of pepper to the sausage and peppers.
8. Add jar of sauce to the skillet. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer on low for about 5 minutes. Sauce should be nice and warm and have taken on some of the favors of the seasonings. Add 2 Tbsp starch water and stir. 9. Stir in pasta noodles to skillet.
