spend your time. The Pioneer Woman star Ree Drummond shared

For this slow cooker beef stew recipe, Drummond uses a generous
helping of onions, carrots, fresh parsley, and red potatoes. She also likes to
add chunks of fried bacon. “It can’t hurt, can it?” she asks during The
Pioneer Woman show. If bacon isn’t enough excitement for you, Drummond also
uses half a bottle of beer as her cooking liquid. She tops it off with tomato
paste, a jalapeño, garlic, beef broth, and Worcestershire sauce. Drummond then pairs
the beef stew with fettucine.
Most would agree Lasagna is the ultimate comfort food.
Drummond inserts flavor into her lasagna by adding three pounds of ground beef
and two pounds of pork sausage. She also adds minced garlic, diced tomatoes, tomato

She then mixes in sliced pieces of chicken, salt, black pepper, ground thyme, half
and half, and turmeric. She uses a flour paste to make the mixture thicker,
saying this is what differentiates chicken noodle soup from chicken and noodle.
Drummond cuts down on cooking time by using frozen homestyle noodles. She says
these are the noodles her grandmother used to use.
Drummond stuffs her shells with a container of ricotta
cheese, in addition to grated parmesan cheese and grated Romano cheese. Other
ingredients include two eggs, basil, salt, pepper, parsley, and marinara sauce.
“This is a really great meatless meal. I love it because you
can serve the shells with a salad, and that’s a great meal in itself,” says
Drummond during The Pioneer Woman show. After making the mixture,
Drummond stuffs jumbo shells and places them cheese-side down in …
