Savory pork, rice noodles & vegetables with a creamy peanut sauce come together for this delicious dinner recipe cooked in the Ninja Cooking System. 0

Pork & Noodles with Peanut Sauce | Ninja Cooking System

After developing the recipe for Slow Cooked Ginger Soy Beef Noodle Bowls (which is delicious!), I’ve been experimenting with other Asian-inspired noodle dishes for the Ninja Cooking System. This recipe for Pork & Noodles with Peanut Sauce had me trying some new things in the kitchen. 1. I typically choose something other than a dish with peanuts out at restaurants. Never been a huge fan of the peanut flavor unless it’s in a classic PB&J. Somehow, the idea of making it into a creamy satay-inspired sauce with coconut milk seemed like the way to go here. And I’d say it was a...

This recipe is similar to the Ninja Cooking System recipe for spaghetti & meatballs, but instead we've used whole wheat spaghetti with meat sauce. 0

Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Meat Sauce in the Ninja Cooking System

I love using the Ninja Cooking System for pasta. It makes cleanup easy and I can get on to enjoying my family with their happy, full bellies. The second recipe in the Ninja Cooking System cookbook shows how to make spaghetti and meatballs in 30 minutes flat. But I quickly figured out a recipe adjustment so I could serve whole wheat spaghetti with meat sauce. We do love meatballs, but we’re used to eating meat sauce with our spaghetti. And this is one of those dishes where the whole wheat pasta isn’t quite as noticeable because of the flavorful sauce....

Chicken Parm Pasta Bake for the Ninja Cooking System is low in fat and high in protein thanks to Jovial Organic Einkorn Whole Wheat Rigatoni pasta. 0

Chicken Parm Pasta Bake for the Ninja Cooking System

My new recipe, Chicken Parm Pasta Bake for the Ninja Cooking System, is a little special. Not just because it’s delicious and it’s another recipe for the 3-in-1. It’s special because it’s made with a new kind of pasta that I’m really excited about. I made this chicken parm dish using Jovial 100% Organic Einkorn Whole Wheat Rigatoni. I’m excited about this pasta is because it’s made using a true ancient grain. Einkorn wheat is still the grain nature always intended. It hasn’t been hybridized to contain more gluten for fluffy baked goods. There’s a picture right on the box showing the size of...

Shrimp Scampi Primavera is Dish-y's first reader-submitted recipe, and was developed for the Ninja Cooking System. BIG thanks to Bobbie for creating this spectacular shrimp pasta dish! 0

Shrimp Scampi Primavera in the Ninja Cooking System

I’m loving developing recipes for the Ninja Cooking System. And it turns out that I’m not the only one. We recently received our very first reader recipe submission for a shrimp pasta dish made in the Ninja. It’s called Shrimp Scampi Primavera from our friend, Bobbie. We tried out the recipe, and she did a fantastic job! You can see the original recipe submission in the comments of our article: A Ninja in my Kitchen! Ninja Cooking System Bobbie originally added green bell peppers in addition to the red. I’ll tell you, it’s the first time ever that I have gone to...

"This stuff needs to be made on a frequent basis." It was my husband's comment after eating Creamy & Spicy Sausage Fusilli made in the Ninja Cooking System. 0

Creamy & Spicy Sausage Fusilli

“This stuff needs to be made on a frequent basis.” It’s what my husband said after his first bite of Creamy & Spicy Sausage Fusilli. At the end of the meal, he announced that no one else was allowed to touch any of the leftovers, because he would be eating them all. Right there, folks. That’s why I love to cook. Of course, I love eating the food myself. But when that enjoyment comes with added benefits like praise and expression of creativity, it becomes incredibly fulfilling. Ok, enough of the mushy, sentimental stuff. What I like most about this...

No draining required when you cook an entire pasta dinner in the Ninja Cooking System. Here's a spicy recipe for Shrimp Fra Diavolo. 0

Shrimp Fra Diavolo in the Ninja Cooking System

I’m not coming up with any sort of shortage of pasta recipe ideas for the Ninja Cooking System. The latest, and I couldn’t wait to make it, is Shrimp Fra Diavolo. It’s a spicy Italian linguine pasta dish that’s always sure to at least catch my husband’s eye on the restaurant menus. Cooking pasta is so much more streamlined now since you can eliminate the need for draining by using the Ninja Cooking System. There’s an art to it, though. Noodles and tomato-based sauces can be cooked together all at once. Sauces with cream require a bit of fancy footwork, because...

Rattlesnake Pasta Served 0

Rattlesnake Pasta in the Ninja Cooking System

I used to make Rattlesnake Pasta a lot. That was before I had kids. Rattlesnake Pasta is delicious. But from what I remember, it required me to get three pots dirty. One to boil the pasta, one to cook the chicken, and another to make the sauce. That kind of nonsense can only exist in my former life. I can’t be cleaning all of those pots. What a ridiculous time waste. Ha! I used to feel so rushed in the kitchen—like I had no time at all to be creative with food. I mean, after a full day’s work, I only had...

Three Cheese Beefy Mostaccioli 0

Three Cheese Beefy Mostaccioli

I met my husband, Rob, pretty soon after I graduated college—and a couple of years after I worked a short stint as a Pampered Chef kitchen tool saleswoman. Even though I didn’t continue selling the tools, I made Pampered Chef recipes for many years. One of my favorites was Cheesy Mostaccioli. I loved Pampered Chef’s Cheesy Mostaccioli recipe so much that it was the first meal I ever cooked for Rob. And I’m pretty sure it played a role in landing me a husband. Fast forward a few years, and I developed into a moderately hardcore natural food person. I...
