Curry Pasta Recipe

A savory curry sauce over pasta of your choice.   This recipe is great for camping, since the only thing that needed refrigeration is the frozen pasta, and if you choose to use dried pasta, it would be even more camping friendly.  You may wish to double the sauce recipe and eat it with crusty bread to dip.


  • 1 can vegetable broth, chicken broth or beef broth
  • 1/2 cup butter, divided in half
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder (or more)
  • 1 package pasta (I used frozen ravioli)
  • 1 can unsweetened coconut cream (milk)
  • 1 baguette


  1. Start sauce first, as it needs to simmer to thicken.
  2. Pour the can of broth into a medium sized pot and start simmering it.
  3. Carefully add 1/2 stick of butter, cut into chunks. Stir until melted.
  4. Add the curry powder, whisking to make sure there are no lumps.
  5. Sample the sauce to see if the flavor suits you or if you need to add more curry powder.
  6. In a separate pot, start making the pasta according to the package directions. Drain when done and add the remaining butter, stirring to coat.
  7. When the sauce has simmered for 5 or 10 minutes, carefully add the coconut cream.
  8. Sample the sauce again to be sure the flavor is right for you.
  9. Continue simmering the sauce, whisking occasionally, until it reaches the thickness you desire, or until you cannot stand waiting any longer.
  10. Serve the sauce over the pasta with a side of crusty bread to dip.

Taco Salad in a Bag Recipe

The first time I ever had this was at the Saskatoon Ex.  Since then I have made it several times and everyone enjoys it as a light supper any time of the year.

Taco Salad in a Bag RecipeIngredients

  • 1/4 cup refrigerated taco sauce with seasoned ground beef (from 18-oz container)
  • 1 personal sized bag of nacho cheese flavored Doritos
  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 tablespoons shredded lettuce


  1. In small microwavable bowl, microwave ground beef on High 30 seconds or until thoroughly heated.  That being said, I prefer to brown my ground beef on the stove.  When that is done,  squeeze bag of Doritos to crush slightly.
  2. Cut bag of chips open along top; hold open. Top chips with warm ground beef; mix with fork. Top with cheese, lettuce and if desired, other taco toppings. Mix it up again with fork. Eat directly from bag.
