Freezer Food Fest #8 & #9

Posted by Caveman Cooking on January 11, 2010

It’s official! We’re moving!! So, I have been given a “request” by the Cavewoman to empty the freezer before we hit the road. The pressure is on!

Freezer Food Fest #8


Some folks may call this cheating. I call it full disclosure. I was forced, by overwhelming Cave-family demand, to use the same recipe on two consecutive editions of Freezer Food Fest. That’s right! The Garlic Shrimp in Creamy Tomato Sauce used on the Florentyna’s linguini in F3 #8 was such a hit, it was brought out for an encore performance in the 9th installment on some of their Ravioli. The family even wanted a do-over of the Sauteed Yellow Squash that went so well next to the Black Linguini.
I admit it, I “caved” under the pressure. But, who am I to deny my family their deepest desires. Besides, shrimp and yellow squash were on major sale at our local Vons. 😉 So, just two nights removed from one version of this meal, we went for another go of it. Though, I just had to throw in a twist. Instead of the linguini from our first rendition, I went with a pair of Ravioli choices: Black & White Striped Lobster Ravioli and some Portobello Mushroom Raviloli.

Freezer Food Fest #9


At first, the Cavekids were a bit uncertain about the shroom version. However, after their hesitant beginnings, they were mowing them down almost as fast at the Lobster filled versions they were annihilating like a fryer chicken in a Piranha tank.
While I was quite pleased about their love for this dish, it was their reaction to the squash that has blown me away. The Cavegirl was heard to say, “I looooooove squash!”. Caveboy was too busy chewing to say anything intelligible.
I guess I kind of killed two proverbial birds with one stone here. Two different pasta genres with the same gravy. I am not aware of any Freezer Food Fest rules that prevent me from using the same recipe on more than one dish. I wasn’t cheating, being lazy (though, that is my nature ;)), or forcing my family into a redux. Just responding to popular demand, and happy to be taking two more steps in this icy odyssey.

Sauteed Yellow Squash

Posted by Caveman Cooking on January 9, 2010


A very easy, healthy, and delicious side dish that goes well with just about any meal.

INGREDIENTS

2 Large Yellow Squash
1/2 Sweet Onion
1 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to tatse

RECIPE

Mince garlic, chop squash into 1/2 inch semi-circles, and cut onion into 1-2 inch long 1/4″ strips. Set aside.

In a large non-stick skillet heat oil over high flame (if using a regular pan double the amount of oil). Add garlic and saute quickly (less than a minute). Add squash and onions, salt and pepper to taste. Saute until onions become translucent (about 2-3 minutes).

Serve as a vegetable side dish with almost any main course you can think of. Just in case you were wondering, yes, I over cooked this batch slightly! 😉 But, it was still gooooood!!

Prep Time = 10 minutes
Cook Time = 5 minutes
Serves 2-4
