Looking for mealtime inspiration for the new year? Meet your new go-to ingredient

Posted

(BPT) - Ready to kick off 2023 with new resolutions that will help improve and simplify your routine?

If you’ve made it your mission to cook more cost-friendly meals that delight everyone, it can be challenging to find new flavor inspiration. While at-home cooking is one of the top ways to help you keep to your household budget, it’s not easy to make delicious, creative meals without stocking a full pantry of herbs and spices — or spending hours in the kitchen building layers of flavor.

Fortunately, a new, versatile solution can help turn ordinary meals into much more flavorful experiences without sacrificing your budget — or taking hours from your busy schedule. Your trusted name in soup, Campbell’s®, is introducing your next favorite secret ingredient: Campbell’s® FlavorUp! Cooking Concentrate.

Campbell’s FlavorUp! comes in three flavor combinations that were inspired by the most popular spice pairings and usually require significant prep and cook time to develop: Rich Garlic & Herb, Caramelized Onion & Burgundy Wine, and Savory Mushroom & Herb. With just a tablespoon or two, you can marinate or mix in to enhance any protein, grain or vegetable dish.

Sausage, Broccoli Rabe and Orecchiette

Dinner in a hurry doesn't get any easier (or tastier) than this Sausage, Broccoli Rabe and Orecchiette. The entire meal, including the pasta, cooks in a single skillet — how’s that for a time- and dish-saver? While you can use any other type of pasta, the small curved orecchiette are perfectly shaped to hold bits of sausage and greens, ensuring that every bite is flavor-filled. The rich sausage and sweet Caramelized Onion & Burgundy Wine Cooking Concentrate balances the broccoli rabe's bitter notes, and red pepper flakes add some heat. Since it's ready in 20 minutes and only uses six ingredients, this is the perfect no-fuss meal for busy families.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons Caramelized Onion & Burgundy Wine Cooking Concentrate

12 ounces mild Italian pork sausage
8 ounces uncooked orecchiette pasta (about 2 cups)
3 cups water
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 bunch broccoli rabe, cut in 1-inch pieces (about 6 cups)

Directions

Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat. Stir in uncooked orecchiette, water, concentrate and red pepper. Cover and heat to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 10 minutes or until orecchiette is tender. Stir in broccoli rabe. Cover and cook for 3 minutes or until broccoli rabe is tender-crisp. Season with black pepper (no need to add salt). Serve with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.

With a little help from these new cooking concentrates, you can ensure your new year will be full of flavor, no matter what’s cooking in the kitchen. You can find FlavorUp! in the dry seasoning aisle at leading retailers nationwide, such as Kroger, or at FlavorUp.com.
