A Canadian Turkey Ragout
Well thanks to the weather doubling my electric bill, there is much more month left over after the budget! When I mentioned this to a friend, he offered half of cooked turkey breast! Now this can be some fine eating, especially when its free.
When, not if, but when this happens to you. Go to the pantry. Make a mental list of what is there and what can go together. If anything else is needed, borrow from a neighbor. Then and most importantly, come up with a fancy name for the meal.
For this, instead of “left over turkey” pot pie: it is called “A Canadian Turkey Ragout” (RAH- goo). The term comes from French “ragoûter”, meaning "to revive the taste." Sounds delicious and it will be.
2 cups cooked turkey (approx.)
1 cup left-over vegetables
1 can cream of chicken soup
½ chopped red onion
5 oz non fat Greek style yogurt
½ tsp black pepper
4 oz whole milk
½ box pasta (slave mixed two near empty boxes)
Cut up cooked turkey and chop the onion.
Cook pasta according to package:
Heat oil in skillet: add onions and let cook until transparent, mix in the turkey to heat up. Stir in the vegetables.
When hot add the soup with ½ can of milk. Stir in the pepper.
Lower the heat and stir until well blended. Let that simmer while pasta finishes.
Just before serving, spoon in the yogurt and mix well after it is off of the heat.
Slave also did some brown and serve french bread out of a tube.
Serve over the hot pasta.
This excellent meal does not look like a broken budget at all, but rather a culinary exercise designed to please. Preparation should be done with all of the love you can muster! Hold your head up, focus on the goal of providing comfort and great tasting food. Your focus will make all the difference in the world. I don't care if you are fixing this over a broken stove in a run down apartment, believe it is your temple of nourishment and love. The magical place where love becomes a tangible thing. The wonderful aromas will drift into the other room where he is relaxing from his hard work. This is your gift factory, your heart. From that will spring fantastic things you never dreamt of.
