Beef teriyaki with bell pepper and rice noodles

 Hard to mark beef teriyaki better- unless you upgrade the rice to rice noodles. Something about that texture and slurpability- right? Add in some green veggies and you are golden. Ingredients: 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 bell pepper 1lime 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce 2 tablespoons soy sauce 5 ounces pad Thai noodles 1/2 pound sliced sirloin steak salt, pepper, oil Method: Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil. Halve pepper, discard stem and seeds, and cut into thin strips.  Into a small bowl, squeeze 2 teaspoons lime juice; cut any remaining lime into wedges. Add teriyaki, soy, and 1⁄4 cup water, stirring to combine. Set aside. Add noodles to saucepan with boiling salted water; cook, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until al dente.  Drain noodles, rinse under cold water, then toss with 1 teaspoon oil. Set aside. While noodles cook, heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium- high heat. Add peppers and cook until softened and browned in spots, about 5 m

Buffalo tortellini and salad

 I feel like I may be on a Buffalo ranch trend these days. This version involves the world's favorite carb- noodles. Enjoy! Ingredients: 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced 1/4 cup panko 9 ounce package cheese tortelloni  2 tablespoons Buffalo hot sauce 3 ounces baby spinach Ranch dressing, to taste 1 large egg 4 tablespoons butter vinegar, salt, pepper Method: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. In a medium bowl, whisk 1 large egg. In a shallow bowl, stir to combine panko and 2 teaspoons oil until evenly coated. Carefully, add tortelloni to saucepan with boiling salted water; cook, stirring occasionally, until almost al dente, about 3 minutes. Drain tortelloni and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool before breading.  Add cooled tortelloni to bowl with egg, tossing gently to coat. Lift out of bowl, letting excess egg drip off. One at a time, add tortelloni to panko, pressing lightly to help breading adhere. Carefull
