$100 American Express Gift Card Giveaway and Six Ingredient Dinner

I’m very excited about today’s post, because, you, my readers, have the chance to win a $100 American Express gift card! Oh, all the things you could buy with it… Just think… I personally have visions of Lululemon, Anthropologie, DSW… But it’s not about my dreams!Winking smile

So here is how it all came about. I was selected through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program in partnership with American Express to participate in the Dinner@6 program, and one of the rewards is a $100 American Express gift card to give to my readers! The challenge is to create a complete meal with six (6) ingredients or less. Salt, pepper, oil, and water may be used without counting as one of the six (6) ingredients. Here is a link to the official rules: http://www.foodbuzz.com/blogs/4169032-dinner-6-official-rules.

Now on to my six ingredient meal. Right away, I thought about a pasta dish. But I wanted it to be “unusual,” and I remembered a simple, “no recipe” dish I sometimes throw together. It’s quick, uses ingredients we all love, and everyone in our house loves the finished dish. I use cottage cheese to make the sauce, which turns out nice and creamy thanks to the melted cottage cheese. It also has bacon, which adds bacony goodness. And for freshness and nutrients, there are green onions and veggies.

Creamy, Bacony Pasta with Mushrooms and Peppers 

6 Ingredients


  • 27 ounces fresh “Asian”pasta (available in my regular grocery store in the produce aisle or in Asian supermarkets in the “noodle” and tofu section)
  • 6 slices lean bacon, cut into thin strips
  • 10 - 12 green onions, cut into slices
  • 16 ounces cottage cheese
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 bell peppers, sliced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste (free ingredients)
Here are the prepped ingredients:


Directions
  1. Boil the pasta according to the instructions on the package and drain.
  2. In the meantime, heat pan and add the bacon strips once the pan is hot. Cook for a few minutes, until the bacon gets slightly crispy. Drain excess grease.
  3. Add the mushrooms and peppers and cook for a few minutes.
  4. Add 3/4 of the  green onions and cook until wilted.
  5. Add the cottage cheese, cook for a minute and then turn off the heat. Keep the cottage cheese in the warm pan until it is slightly melted.
  6. Mix the cooked pasta with the cheesy sauce.
  7. Sprinkle the pasta with the remaining green onions.
  8. Serve the pasta and enjoy!
Servings: 8

Prep and cook time: 20 minutes

  2. First of all, I love your idea of adding cottage cheese to your pasta dish - I use it when I make lasagna, but never thought to toss it in pasta!

    Favorite six ingredient recipe? A Reuben! Rye bread, thousand island dressing, swiss cheese, corned beef, sauerkraut and butter to grill it!

  3. Russian vinaigrette salad! Boil (skins on -- remove once cooled) and then finely dice beets, carrots and potatoes. Add finely diced crunchy dill pickles and red onion and a can of sweet peas. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. It is to die for.

  8. Not only are short ingredient recipes quick, usually they're budget friendly. One of my favorite few ingredient meals is super eggs ~ potatoes, eggs, veggies and a little cheese! Easy peasy.

  10. Ooh... for me, my favorite six-ingredient dish is probably lasagna.
    1. Lasagna no-boil noodles
    2. Tomatoes
    3. Cottage cheese (I prefer to ricotta)
    4. Cooked ground turkey (or beef)
    5. Mozzarella cheese
    6. Garlic powder
    Mix the tomatoes with cottage cheese and beef and alternate layers of no-boil noodles, cheesy beef mix, and mozzarella cheese. And then bake. Incredibly delicious and super easy.

  11. This is a summer standby. It tastes so much more complicated then it is to prepare. Absolutely delicious!

    1 c. mixed small tomatoes, halved
    1/4 c. red onion, diced

  13. I'll definitely be tweeting this, but not participating. It's a FANTASTIC giveaway and contest, but I've been spending way too much time cooking and coming up with recipes lately, I'm actually sick of it (crazy). I did just buy panko today, finally, and really want to try panko salmon!

  14. Carrot cake is my absolute favorite dessert and this microwave recipe is so easy:

    Mix together:
    1/2 cup oil
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 eggs
    cinnamon
    1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
    1 packet baking soda
    1 cup of raw carrots

    Put the mixture into a microwave-safe pyrex, preferably round, and in about 7 minutes it's ready!

  108. I have this in the crock pot right now. 2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, jar of salsa, 2 T. chili powder, 1 t. cumin, 1 t. cayenne, 2 limes (squeeze the juice on then throw in the limes but remove the lime halves before eating), throw 1/2 bunch of cilantro on top and cook on low for 8 hours. Use for tacos or burritos.

  111. My favorite 6 ingredients dinner is Creamy Asian Beef Noodle.

    8 ounces soba (Japanese buckwheat noodles)
    1 1/2 pounds of skirt steak, cut in half or thirds to fit in skillet
    1 pound(s) of snow peas, stem ends removed
    2 tsp. of soy sauce
    8 ounce(s) of 8 ounce Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
    2 Green Onion, chopped

    In a pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles until al dente. Drain and set aside.

    Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Season steak with salt and pepper. Cook, turning once, until medium-rare, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer steak to a cutting board and loosely cover with aluminum foil (reserve skillet with juices).

    Add snow peas to skillet and toss with juices. Cook on medium-high heat, tossing occasionally until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add noodles, soy sauce, and cream cheese, cook until warmed through, about 1 minute. Transfer to serving bowls. Slice steak and place on top of noodles. Sprinkle with green onions and enjoy.

  119. Gorgeous pictures! Thank you for the recipe! I could practically smell those scallions from here haha... absolutely delicious :)

    My go-to 6 ingredient recipe is!:
    - 1 box corn/gluten free shells
    - 1 cup cubed extra firm tofu
    - 2 huge handfulls of fresh baby spinach
    - A couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
    - About 1/4-1/2 cup graded Pecorino Romano
    - salt and pepper to taste
    Cook the pasta according to directions, lightly saute the cubed tofu with olive oil, toss the spinach in with the warm pasta once it has been drained, stir the spinach in with the pasta and add the rest of the olive oil, stir, toss in the tofu with the pasta, stir, toss the cheese in, stir, salt and pepper to taste… Enjoy!

  121. great recipe idea!

    My fav 6 ingredient recipe is a quick pasta dish...

    1 lb rigatoni
    1 large onion, chopped
    a couple of cloves of garlic, minced
    1 lb fresh tomatoes, chopped
    handful of basil, roughly chopped
    1 lb fresh mozzarella
    2 tbsp olive oil
    salt & pepper

    Cook pasta according to package instructions. While the pasta is cooking, saute the onion and garlic in olive oil over medium heat, then add the chopped tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cut the mozzarella into bite sized pieces, drain the pasta (when it is al dente) and toss everything together. Top with the chopped basil and you are good to go!
