Sour Cream Pasta

Jordan and I used to eat out everyday until we realized how much money we've been squandering. For the past few days, I've been busy in the kitchen with my concoctions and made most of basic kitchen ingredients. You don't need to be a chef to make tasty food. Use your imagination and test recipes. That's what I did! As I rummaged through the fridge and pantry, I made the most of leftovers.

I'm tired of plain old hotdogs so I figured to add a little pizzazz to it. This is a different approach to a creamy pasta fix for a fraction of the cost.

1/2 cup sour cream
2/3 cup of milk
1 mashed burger patty 
2 chicken hotdogs
1 tbs cornstarch
1 tbs melted butter
1/2 pound fettuccine 
salt and pepper to taste (you can also add oregano if you wish)


Mash the burger patty with your hands. If you don't have this, substitute it with ground beef. (half a tray of ground beef will do) 


saute onions in a pan with the butter until it's translucent then add the mashed burger patty. Once the patty is halfway cooked, add the chicken slices. The hotdogs do not need to be browned since they're already precooked. Once ready, pour in the milk and sour cream then add in the cornstarch to thicken the mixture. Adjust the consistency to your liking by adding milk and cornstarch. Once the consistency is thick enough, season with salt and pepper. (You may add oregano for taste.) 

Use any pasta of your liking. I personally prefer fettuccine with this recipe. 

*TIP: Once you've drained your pasta, drizzle some EVOO on it so that the noodles won't stick to each other.

My husband and I enjoy cooking together. We made a great chocolate lava cake last night that I'll share with you next time.

 Good eats!

  20. I have been doing the same, I love how creative you got with this kitten so good ...I love paste like MAD BIG love !!! Looks yummy and it's great because you are using what you have, I get sick of throwing loads of food away and have been trying to reduce it and use what I have before buying heaps more. Great post, think it will inspire people to get creative and try something different rather than throwing away perfect food to buy more stuff. xxx
    Reply to your comment on my post: It is COLD in London :P xxxxxx

  21. yum this looks delicious! I'm not too good with utilizing leftovers lol. I suck!

  22. I love cooking with my bf! But to be honest, he's a better cook than me so most of the time I'm just watching him cook, lol. We eat out together a lot too, but I bet here food is a lot less expensive than in the US.
