Pastalaya, Jambaghetti or whatever you want to call it (with pics)
I know it's not for everyone and I cook far more straight up Jambalaya, than this, but the wife loves it so it has to be in the rotation!

Browning some sausage:


Add a little pork:


Veggies and chicken are in:


Almost done:


On a plate:


It ended up being pretty tasty and it made the wife happy!

IWEI. What did you put in for veggies? It's hard to see any in there.

Onion, red/ green bell peppers, celery, parsley and garlic. They're kinda hard to see in there. I should have take a photo when I first added them and before they were cooked down and browned. Green onions went in at the end.

Looks good. I also like pastalaya for a change of pace.

For this, it was # 3 thin spaghetti. You can really use whatever you like.

May be a stupid question, but did you cook the noodles first? Every time I try it with raw noodles, it gets all F'ed up.

No...browned everything down, added a quart of water for each lb of pasta (this was only a pound and a half of noodles), cooked, with the lid off, until the pasta was tender, and w/ pretty much all of the stock gone, took it off of the fire and then let it sit, w/ the lid on for thirty minutes,

You'll need to stir, a lot, to keep the pasta from sticking.

Use 3 cups of water for every pound of pasta and you it will come out fine everytime. I like to use bowtie pasta for pastalaya.

Depends on how you cook everything down. I brown the meat until there's no water left and it's got a deep brown color. I brown the vegetables down until there's no water left and they're a dark brown. A quart per lb works great for this method...if you're doing something different you have to compensate for the liquid in the pot.

Everybody has to learn what works for them.

Looks good, I'd prefer different pasta though, maybe bowties.

Your feet were just fine!

The pastalaya looks good.

Thanks! Didn't think the feet looked that bad but "The Food and Drink Board" probably isn't the most appropriate place for posting pics of them. Will save those for the Flip Flop Board.
