This Weekend in Hedonism (Segment 3)

  • Cheryl's Recipe Corner!
  • One-Pot Enchilada Rigatoni
  • Description
    • Winter is the time of year where I love casseroles and hearty meals.  But, sometimes it gets boring when it's an Italian themed item.  This recipe is in my "to try" list, because it sounds fantastic with an added spin on it that takes the Italian away from it!
  • Ingredients
    • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
    • 1 can (19 oz) Mild enchilada sauce
    • 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
    • 1 lb uncooked rigatoni pasta
    • 1 can (11 oz) whole kernel corn with red and green bell peppers
    • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend (8 oz)
  • Directions
    • In nonstick 5-quart Dutch oven, cook beef with salt to taste over high heat, stirring frequently, until brown. Do not drain.  Add enchilada sauce, evaporated milk, 4 cups hot water, the pasta and corn. Heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 15 minutes, stirring occasionally; do not drain.  Remove from heat; stir in cheese. Serve topped with crushed tortilla chips, cilantro and chopped green onions, if desired.
